I ordered my RS back in late-December. After waiting over 5 months with no word (I dropped into the dealer every 6 weeks or so and they never had updates) I was able to learn from FordService that my RS was built on May 9th! Unfortunately, it hasn’t made it to a ship yet, and it looks like it’ll be at least a couple of months before it’s here (likely delayed due to the recent hold for fixes).
Having owned almost nothing other than manual hatchbacks over the past 30 years, I’ve always wanted an RS. My current daily driver is a Fiesta 1L Ecoboost (brilliant little car and my first Ford), which I’m keeping for the kids.
