Ford Focus RS (mk2) buying guide - Ford Focus RS (Mk2) used prices and specs

How much to pay for a Ford Focus RS and how much it'll cost you to run

What to pay

Despite early cars touching five years old now, prices aren't falling particularly fast. Early cars with 40,000-50,000 miles haven't yet dropped below £18,000 whether looking privately or buying from an independent dealer.

The vast majority of mk2 RSs are in the £20-23K bracket, where there’s a wide choice of both standard and modified cars with a full service history. Even Mountune-upgraded cars don’t attract a significant premium, but then neither do any of the best-known upgrades devalue a well-cared-for RS. Top dealer price for a late, low-mileage RS with all the options is £23-24K.

The rare RS500 is pricier: many dealers ask £35K and specialist Focus RS Direct has delivery-mileage cars up for £40K - as much as they cost when new.
