Check out the hotly-anticipated Ford Focus RS500 as it enters production in Germany. The story inside.
Ford has released a new two-minute long video detailing production of the Ford Focus RS500. The car is shown as it goes through many of its assembly phases at the Saarlouis plant in Germany.
The already sold-out RS500 is seen in the beginning as a body-in-white, before being covered with 3M Car Foil. Only 500 units of the car are scheduled for production.
The Ford Focus RS500 will be sold in 20 different markets across Europe. It uses a five-cylinder 2.5-liter engine that generates 345 horsepower (257 kW / 350 PS) and as much as 460 Nm (339 lb-ft) of torque. It has generated considerable amount of interest, as it will sprint to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds, and can maintain a top speed of 265 km/h (165 mph).
