Customized Focus RS Tribute Cars Grace Le Mans - Spinout

Five uniquely liveried Focus RS hatchbacks to pay tribute to the Ford cars that made Blue Oval history at the Le Mans 24 Hour race.

Sep 20, 2010

To celebrate classic Ford racers of the past, Ecurie Ford France - one of the partners of the popular Le Mans Classic event - has created five uniquely liveried Focus RS hatchbacks to pay tribute to the Ford cars that made Blue Oval history at the Le Mans 24 Hour race.

Let's break down the cars: black with silver stripes, a reference to the Ford Mk II that was victorious in 1966; red with white stripes, recalling the Mk IV that won in 1967; and white with a thin blue center stripe surrounded by a red border that echoes the decoration of the beautiful Ford Mk IIB entered by Ford France in the 1967 Le Mans 24 hours.

There's no mistaking the two-tone sky blue and orange, a modern take on the Gulf GT40s, which dominated Le Mans in 1968 and 1969, while the less familiar two-tone white and blue represents the livery of the Capri RS 2600, which took the Touring category in 1972.

All five exclusive Focus RS vehicles also have customized interiors and were scheduled to see action at the '10 Le Mans Classic in July, then be sold as numbered collector cars.
