  • New owner of #0000

    Hi All,
    I was lucky enough to find and purchase car #0000 on a recent trip to Japan, I now have the car back home in New Zealand and looking to piece together the history and hopefully the story of how it made it to Japan.

    Welcome!
    Stunning, I’ve only seen 2 old pics of 0000 ever.
    Interesting indeed how it ended up in Japan, congratulations on finding this car and please keep it in good condition!

    Should you ever sell it, I’m interested.

      Welcome to the club forum Adam and good to have communication by email recently. Great to have Focus RS 0000 here, a Focus RS that was built for the development but not commonly known. A car that I personally thought would have been scrapped by Ford Motor Company. Well done for managing to find and purchase this car.

          Must be a very early produced car this.
          Most test/prototype cars were scrapped as you said, glad to see this one survived!

            Thanks guys, looking forward to putting the history together. I will be keeping it in its factory form, it does have a Miltek exhaust but apart from that it is standard. Once we get some better weather I will post some pictures of the car.

              0000 was produced later than the 'Stelvio Pass' pre-production test cars but 5 months prior to 0001 being built,

              Pre production 'Stelvio Pass' cars build dates:

              White - build date: 30-10-2000
              Black - build date: 30-10-2000
              Blue - build date: not known


              0000 - build date: 18-04-2002
              0001 - build date: 04-09-2002

                  WOW and welcome. I’m looking forward to seeing more pictures of the car. Would you consider starting a thread in the restoration section? I’m sure we’d all love to see it.

                        Would anyone have a rough estimate as to the value of #0000 ? i need to update my insurance. 49,000 on the clock tidy throughout.

                          No idea on price, same old saying of what someone is willing to pay... not sure how much you managed to secure it for!?

                          Have you managed to dig up any more history for it??

                              I know X926 YOO was a black one, think there were over 10 cars in black and white
                          Working...
