In 12 hours Ford Focus RS500 has been sold

Few days ago we had a news about an earlier unveilg of the special edition Ford Focus RS500. Next we had a videoclip with the famous, from now, Ford Focus RS500.
Now we came with a bad news. The car os no longer available for order. Even if the car's price wasn't unveiled at that time 500 people already made a pre-order.
So, if you want to buy a Ford Focus RS500 you will have to wait for someone to cancel treir order.
Just after the pictures were unveiled an automaker source tells the magazine that "people were literally walking into dealers or calling them up and placing orders
for the car."
The same source, from Ford, said: "because we had to quickly bring the car's launch forward we hadn't even briefed the dealers on its existence. It led to some quite confused phone calls between dealers and head office."

The car has a 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine that produces 350 PS and up to 460 Nm (339 lb-ft) of torque.
Focus RS500 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds with a topspeed of 265 km/h (165 mph).

The Ford Focus RS500 will be shown to the public in Leipzig, Germany, on April 9.
