Ford has awarded the license for the production of Modellautos to the brand new Ford Focus RS in the size 1:18 to the label Ottomobile or also Otto models. The result can be seen: A sharply modeled model now enriches the showcases of friends of the brand Ford directly in the conspicuous nitrous blue metallic. Otto made the miniature from the high-quality Resine plastic, which naturally means that the doors and hoods of the Focus RS remain closed. However, the collector receives a great miniature of the Ford, which is precisely reduced to the last detail, which is characterized by the extremely correct reproduction of the special features of this equipment variant: spoilers on the bow and stern are the results of the best mold construction.
The way in which Otto designed the front apron and its subtleties around grill grilles and daytime running lights is an excellent piece of work. The contours of the front spoiler and front hood, headlights and head grille are perfect replicas of the model. The look and feel of the Focus RS was first-rate in terms of craftsmanship and thus successfully implemented into the model. The glazing fits neatly into the environment from the popular polyurethane casting resin; The interior life of the headlights is likewise imitated on a very high level. The replicas of the light-alloy rims also inspire enthusiasm. The rear spoiler is recognizable as a distinctive element of the RS version; Whose appearance has been implemented with great care. Well-engraved doors and door handles, type plates complement the positive overall impression.
Top interior, top marks
In the sporty interior, the friend of the Ford brand recognizes a formally harmonious faucet panel, evenly-sized seats and exemplary coloring. The quality of the instrumentation, the decals and the highlighting of the controls is immaculate. Unfortunately, we are not showing how it looks under the bonnet, because there would be a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine that delivers 257 kW / 350 hp from the Ford Mustang. Its maximum torque is 440 Newtonmeter (Nm), while the overboost is 470 Nm. The exclusively five-door model, which can be supplied with all-wheel drive, requires an investment of 40,000.00 euros. In our final account the small Focus RS deserves a top ranking in the Resine area. Congratulation!
