Wrecked Ford Focus RS With A Salvage Title Is Surprisingly Costly

Just like the Ford Mustang, a number of Ford Focus RS’ have had their lives cut tragically short.

Remember in September of last year when an overconfident Ford Focus RS driver drifted his hot hatch into a cliff face? Well, it appears it was just one of many to be damaged and now one is for sale with a surprising price tag.

Bidding for the car is currently at a surprisingly high $23,700 despite all the damage it has and the fact that it has missing headlights, a front bumper that has disappeared and no passenger side front quarter panel.

Perhaps the biggest single area of damage from the incident it was involved in is the severely dented passenger door and, weirdly, a huge hole cut out of the hood.

In the eBay listing, there is no mention of the vehicle suffering any mechanical damage and the car has just 2,000 miles on the clock. Admittedly, it does have a salvage title but it could the perfect base for an imposing track car or weekend canyon carver.

    I wonder if this one ran into the back of a lifted truck? It looks as if the motor is still good along with other positives. If i could afford it, I would shove the drive train in a Fiesta shell. 😂

      Oh my Fiesta??? That’s crazy.

    If the RS has the same record in high resale in the US as Europe does… Get them now! A MK1 Focus RS is at the 15 year mark and they are starting to fly in value… MK2 RS500….Forget it!

    Really? Buy it, buy a used Focus SE or whatever, dump the RS stuff into it. Sell the shell to a scrapper, sell the SE drivetrain off… No BRAINER!
