Subscriptions & booklets

E in Lamborghini Aventador LP 750- 4 Superveloce costs 389,356 euros. The upcoming Ford GT around $ 450,000 (about 412,000 euros). What do you get for it? Two thoroughbred sports cars with full performance.

'One-of-one' 2016 Ford Focus RS

A Ford Focus RS cannot keep up with that in terms of power. Although 350 HP is worth all credit for a compact sports car. Especially since the all-wheel drive in Germany is in the price list for only 40,000 euros.

However, auctions sometimes take on their own dynamic and allow prices to drift into astronomical spheres. Like a 2016 model of the Focus RS, which was suddenly sold for far more money than an Aventador or Ford GT. Namely - please find a chair and sit down - for $ 550,000. That corresponds to around 503,000 euros. Or 12.5 copies of the Ford Focus RS at German prices.

The incredible value was achieved at a charity auction, hosted by Barrett-Jackson, in the USA in late January. The bidding process was initiated by Ford CEO Mark Fields and drift star Ken Block. It is not known whether the RS has any special equipment. Barrett-Jackson speaks of a 'one-of-one' 2016 Focus RS. Some media reports that it is the very first copy. What is certain is that more than half a million dollars will go to a foundation for youth diabetes research. And that the new owner not only benefits from the compact sports car, but also receives professional individual driving training.

Incidentally, the Acura NSX VIN # 001 (serial number) was also auctioned for charity during the auction. Its price: $ 1.2 million.
