Ford Fiesta RS might still be developed

Since its constitution in 1903, Ford Motor has been a company whose automobiles changed the same rhythm as the world did. The company is present in the entire world, becoming a global organization and an unmistakable brand. The Ford Fiesta is one of the most well known vehicles in the American fleet. Its production started in 1976, and the sixth and last generation has been introduced in 2010.

The Ford has sold 16 million Fiestas since the model came out and this figure makes the small car the third best selling Ford model, following the Escort and the F-series. The Ford Fiesta RS is still taken into consideration by the American officials although there haven’t been any rumours about it for a long time. If it comes out, the Fiesta will have an aggressive body kit with bulging wheel arches. There might also be a number of performance upgrades including a sport-tuned suspension, beefier brakes and a limited-slip differential.

Power of the new Ford Fiesta RS could emerge from a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that develops approximately 230 bhp (171 kW). Ford also takes into account building a Ford Focus RS at the same time with the Fiesta. If the small vehicle reaches reality, it could be launched in 2015 with a starting price somewhere around £23,000.
