High performance Fords are no stranger to high markups over MSRP. We’ve seen $5,000+ markups on top of MSRP when we were looking around for a Focus RS, and it turns out this is pretty much the standard. But someone was willing to pay over $515,000 to be the owner of the very first MK3 Focus RS.

This is the prototype car, which makes it an extremely rare vehicle, but what do you think about the $515,000 price hike? Good news is that the total sale price was donated to charity, so this isn’t merely throwing away money to be the first privately owned RS.
