Video: Ford Focus RS500

The RS500 might have sold out 12 hours after Ford's announcement, but we still can't help lusting after the matt black mega-hatch.

Ford understands this of course (the limited edition RS500 is a classic halo model – built to generate attention) and is more than happy to stoke the fires of our desire with a new video of their 345bhp hero.

As expected the RS500's revised exhaust system makes it sound a bit more dramatic than the standard car, and though that unique paint job might not be to everyone's taste, there's no denying its presence in the sunshine.
