New RS with hybrid 350bhp engine, new ST with 240bhp.

The send off of the currrent model sounds good although at £5k with only 500 made i won't be getting my hands on 1.

I do however agree with the post made at the bottom of the article, the new version looks like a festa, however if they can make an ST that does 40mpg, i may be interested, however that would depend if it's a fun to drive and sounds as good as my current car.

I bought Auto Express today to read the article - all speculation as usual, their new RS looked good with facelift ST wheels photoshopped onto it


And not having bought said comic for some time I notice they're using cheaper paper for it now, which probably limit's it's usefulness once I've spent a whole 5 minutes reading everything that was actually interesting in it.

I will be honest a lot of the time this stuff does come to fruition..lets hope it is true! Certainly would explain the rumours regarding a "black" limited edition final RS, and also would explain why Mountune hasn't released its engine conversion yet, sorta makes sense doesn't it


As for the new Focus ST/RS...sounds interesting!

I like the idea of a farewell hardcore
version
, but I just do not like the new Focus whatsoever IMO.

I very much doubt it will happen, not for another 10yrs and when I will be old enough to insure one


It does have the look of a Honda CTR from the rear though which I like
