With the Le Mans Classic event on its way, a French partner of Ford took the opportunity to introduce five Focus RS cars in unique colour schemes, as a tribute to the company's history at the Le Mans 24h. Dubbed Ford Focus RS Le Mans Classic, the cars carry a personalised numbered plaque on the dashboard that conforms its exclusivity.

Inside, the vehicles have customized interiors that include Recaro seats wrapped in Alcantara leather, with stitching that matches the bodywork. The gearshift gaiter, hand brake handle and central arm-rest are upholstered in real leather, and a leather safety belt guide has been added to the front seats.

During the event which takes place between July 9 and 11, the special models from Ecurie Ford France will even carry the race number of the cars to which they’re paying tribute:
  • Black with silver stripes: a reference to the Ford Mk II, which was victorious in 1966.
  • Red with white stripes: recalling the Mk IV which won in 1967.
  • White with a thin blue centre stripe surrounded by a red border: echoing the decoration of the beautiful Ford Mk IIB, entered by Ford France in the 1967 Le Mans 24-hours.
  • Two-tone sky blue and orange: A modern take on the GT40s which dominated Le Mans in 1968 and 1969.
  • Two-tone white and blue: representing the livery of the Capri RS 2600 which took the Touring category in 1972.

Once the Le Mans Classic event is over, the five vehicles will go on sale, fitted with RS or RS Technology packs and with a Le Mans Classic watch.
