The surprises keep coming with every 2016 Focus RS announcement by Ford.
First it was that the RS is finally coming to North America. Then we were very surprised and pleased to see the torque vectoring rear differential (unique in its class). Then the performance numbers and the HP and torque: 350 and 350. And most recently the anti-stall feature.
And now the biggest surprise from Ford of them all: the flux capacitor option. Available for order now when you go to Ford’s configuration page to build your Focus RS.
Flux Capacitor – Happy Back to the Future Day
Introducing the Flux Capacitor.
• Makes time travel possible (if time travel were possible, but it’s not… yet)
It is an expensive option, and this is not for everybody. And that’s a good thing, too, since a well-developed understanding of physics is required as is a very well-developed understanding of the laws of time travel. Note the warnings.
Configuring our own Focus RS, we found the option at the top of the list for $1.210 Million USD. We also noted that the option is not available outside of the United States, which is also a very good thing. Consider this, the Brits could go back in time and change the past to ensure that they didn’t lose the American war of independence (but that would introduce a paradox: there might not even be a Ford Motor Company, and there wouldn’t be a United States to save their ass in WW2). Think very carefully before you order this option!
Here’s our own Focus RS configuration:
With our other options, the total cost of our 2016 Focus RS comes to $1,252,275. That makes our Focus RS a bargain, especially if all you are looking for is time travel.
How could Team RS ever top this?
