Ecurie Ford France, one of the partners of the popular Le Mans Classic event, has prepared a collection of just five Focus RS cars in unique colour schemes, each paying tribute to the Ford cars which made ‘blue oval’ history at the Le Mans 24 Hours.
Each of the five Focus RS Le Mans Classic vehicles will be finished in the colours of one of the Ford cars which made 24 Hours history for Ford. During the event itself, they will even carry the race number of the cars to which they’re paying tribute:
Black with silver stripes: a reference to the Ford Mk II, which was victorious in 1966.
Red with white stripes: recalling the Mk IV which won in 1967.
White with a thin blue centre stripe surrounded by a red border: echoing the decoration of the beautiful Ford Mk IIB, entered by Ford France in the 1967 Le Mans 24-hours.
Two-tone sky blue and orange: A modern take on the GT40s which dominated Le Mans in 1968 and 1969.
Two-tone white and blue: representing the livery of the Capri RS 2600 which took the Touring category in 1972.
