Ford Focus RS blasts back
Ford drops heavy hints that the new Ford Focus RS is a reality and could be with us by 2016.
Ford has dropped the biggest hint yet that a new Ford Focus RS super-hatch is deep into development. Our exclusive images – which are based on the recently facelifted model – show how the world’s best-selling car will be turned from a family hatchback into one of the fastest front-wheel-drive cars ever made.
Chief operating officer for Ford of Europe, Barb Samardzich, told us at a recent company event in Milan: “I can’t give you any confirmation today, but let’s say there’s a strong desire. Something like that makes a great halo car.”
A Ford spokesman backed up Samardzich’s comment, saying: “We have a rich heritage of RS cars, and we’re not about to let any competitors overtake us in that respect. You can rest assured that Martin [Smith, director of design, Ford of Europe] and his team are fully focused on the future of our performance strategy.”
