"The Swift RS is in continuation of Maruti Suzuki's celebrations planned around Swift model as it moves towards the one million cumulative sales mark," MSI Vice President (Marketing) Manohar Bhat said in a statement.

The company has sold over 960,000 Swift cars since its launch in May 2005, he added.

The launch of the new limited edition comes at a time when the company has seen decline in sales in a car market which has been on a prolonged slump.
