Six-year old Ford Focus RS with just 18 miles ready to go under the hammer
A Ford Focus RS that has covered just 18 miles in seven years is being offered at auction next month.
The 2011 Ford Focus RS is finished in Ultimate Green – the trademark colour of the second-generation hot hatchback.
The example is UK supplied and despite its incredibly low mileage, has still been serviced four times - the last stamp in 2016 showing that it has covered just four miles since.
It is unsurprisingly in "as new" condition, and even has its original interior wrapping still protecting the footwells, while the seats still have the delivery plastic on them, too – showing that the car has never been used.
The second-generation Focus RS produced 301bhp from its 2.5-litre, 5-cylinder engine, yet controversially had front-wheel-drive. It came with 19-inch wheels, flared wheel arches, a deep diffuser and an unmissable wing.
It is estimated to sell between £38,000 and £44,000.
Silverstone Auctions is selling the car next month at the NEC Classic Motor Show that takes place on the 11th and 12th November.
The auction house said: "This is a comparatively new car for a classic car auction house but the demand for sporting Fords, no matter what vintage, seems to continue unabated.
Other star lots include a 1988 Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 that has covered just 6,000 miles and a 1969 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350.
