We'll Need To Get Used To The Fact There's A New, Very Different Han Solo

  We'll Need To Get Used To The Fact There's A New, Very Different Han Solo When we all finally see Solo: A Star Wars Story, there are going to be a contingent of people who, unfairly, probably won’t give Alden Ehrenreich a chance because he’s not Harrison Ford.For the life of me, I’ve been trying to think of a more iconic movie character, one who has appeared in multiple movies and who is more closely associated with its actor than Han Solo is with Harrison Ford. The only other one I could come up with is (yeah, you probably guessed it) Indiana Jones and Harrison Ford. Ford has appeared as Solo in four proper Star Wars movies – and the Star Wars Holiday Special – over the course of 38 years.

Ford's Focus RS hot hatch will go out of production in April this year, but the brand isn't quite finished with it yet. A new Heritage Edition has been launched, with more power, extra equipment and a unique 'Deep Orange' exterior colour.

Priced at £39,985, just 50 of the Heritage Edition RS will be built and sold in right-hand drive. They will be the last UK bound examples of the hottest Focus before production stops in Saarlouis, Germany.

As well as the striking paintwork, the Heritage Edition benefits from grey brake callipers sat behind black alloys, with contrasting black door mirrors and a black rear spoiler. Inside, part-leather Recaro seats, a sunroof, a heated steering wheel and privacy glass are the kit highlights.

Daniel Craig puts his Bond car up for auction

  Daniel Craig puts his Bond car up for auction Aston Martin cars have appeared in Bond films over nearly 50 years, beginning with 1964's "Goldfinger" in which Sean Connery drove a silver Aston Martin DB5. The brand has appeared in all four Bond films starring Craig. Craig's personal car is a 2014 Vanquish that Aston Martin produced just 100 examples of to celebrate its 100th anniversary. Craig's vehicle is, naturally, number 007."It was an homage, really, to his career," Becky MacGuire, director of Christie's' The Exceptional Sale, said in an interview. "What he's brought to the Bond character has been so appreciated by the company and, of course, zillions of fans.

Ford Focus RS production ends April 6, going out with Heritage Edition . This is a UK-only special edition . Reese Counts. Ford announced the car's end last year along with a limited edition model, but the actual finale has been unclear until now.

The limited-run model also gains the dealer-fitted 'FPM375' Mountune upgrade, boosting max power from 345bhp to 370bhp. Torque is also up 30Nm to 510Nm thanks to a recalibrated turbo and induction kit.

The Heritage Edition's price tag is just over £7,000 more expensive than a standard RS, but will likely justify some of that increase with better resale value as a last-of-the-line model. It also commemorates 50 years of the Escort nameplate, a car synonymous with many RS models throughout its history.
