Beetje 'oud nieuws' want het bericht is officieel van 1 november 2011, maar vinden het toch de moeite waard het te laten zien, dat ook Roush zich niet in kon houden, een persoonlijk tintje aan de Ford Focus 2012 te geven.

Roush Performance Unveils Their 2012 Roush RS3 Focus on November 1, 2011 at the SEMA Show, Las Vegas.

Performance, power and an aggressive appearance are traits readily associated with the Roush Mustangs and the Roush F150 trucks. Roush Performance has applied their powertrain, suspension and body kit capabilities to the 2012 small car platform. The engineering and design teams at Roush Performance unveiled their 2012 Roush RS3 Focus today at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, NV. The Roush concept vehicle is painted in a striking matte-finished Sherwin-Williams “Sin City Silver,” complimented by a graphics package that let’s fellow drivers know that you’re driving a Roushcharged® performance car.

“Our goal is to offer an affordable upgrade package to enhance the performance, handling and appearance of the 2012 Focus,” says Gary Jurick, VP/GM of Roush Performance. “We’re excited about our concept vehicle here at SEMA, and the initial feedback from consumers and our dealers has been very positive. The enhancements to the body components and overall styling have been a big hit with the SEMA crowd. We’re continuing to finalize our program offering, and we plan an announcing availability in early 2012.”

The 2012 Roush RS3 Focus offers several potential powertrain upgrades including a R900 TVS Roushcharger®, Roush modified high-flow induction system and Roush dual-exit high- performance exhaust. “Our initial tests show that more power can certainly be derived from the 2.0L engine with our R900 Roushcharger®. It’s possible to see 230HP and 210 ft/lbs of torque with the Roush Performance setup. Those are big gains over the stock outputs. That kind of power-to-weight ratio will make this an exciting vehicle to drive.”
