Ah bad news on that front. The UK's allocation of 101 cars sold within hours of the RS500 being announced. Eager buyers were begging dealers to take their deposits before Ford had even decided on a price.
So, unless you're one of the lucky few customers with your name already on the list, you won't be able to buy a new one.
However, a few customers have paid their deposit simply to make a quick buck. If you're desperate to get your hands on an RS500, you can probably buy your way onto the waiting list but expect to pay well over Ford's asking price. We've already spotted one in the classifieds for an eye-watering 40,500.
Frankly, we wouldn't bother. We'd stick with the standard Focus RS at 27,895 a bargain by comparison. It'll do 95% of what the RS500 will and is just a much fun. You'll need to be quick, though, because only around 300 of those are left.
