Fiesta RS

Ford has announced this car will go into production for 2007.
Odds on it won't come here!!!! 180ps in a FIESTA @#$%!!!
The unveiling of the Fiesta RS Concept is a surprise element in the portfolio of Fiesta performance vehicles under development within Ford of Europe. It joins the dynamic 150PS Fiesta ST and all-new Fiesta Junior World Rally Car in a demonstration of intent by Ford TeamRS to put the spice back into small Fords.

It is anticipated that a production version of the Fiesta RS Concept could be ready for the road in under 2 years following programme approval

Although the project is still in its early stages of development and public reaction will help determine its progress, power output for a production model of the front-wheel-drive Fiesta RS Concept would be in excess of 180PS , with a target zero-to-60mph figure of around 7 seconds.

“We aren't going to finalise technical specifications until we hear the feedback from potential customers,” said Ford TeamRS Director, Jost Capito. “But, we're fully aware of the performance expectations for this type of vehicle and what our RS customers expect. As we look to fine-tune the concept we'll make sure we don't disappoint them.”

Ford of Europe Vice President for Product Development, Derrick Kuzak, said: “This is a case where one plus one equals three. We wanted to demonstrate our commitment to a comprehensive programme for future performance cars, and to show that bringing together our motorsport engineers with our performance road car engineers in one team could yield even greater results than we dared to expect. By revealing three Fiesta performance models simultaneously, we're showing how serious we are.”
