Automobile manufacturer Ford has announced that it is to release 500 units of its latest high performance model.
The Ford Focus ST500 is a modified version of the Focus ST3, but given a metallic black coat of paint and a silver bonnet and stripes along the roof and side.
In addition, the vehicle will feature scarlet leather Recaro sports seats and an auto-dimming rear view mirror.
Other nifty extras include window-wipers which sense rain and a solar-reflect windscreen.
Ford commented on the legacy of the vehicle.
"With sales of over 13,500, the Ford Focus ST is now firmly positioned as the most sought after performance hatchback in the UK and reflects the motorsport success of the all-conquering Focus RS WRC," said the firm.
The Ford Focus was initially introduced by Ford in 1998 and was the world’s best-selling car over the course of 2001 and 2002.
