Popped into my local stealer and got chatting to the sales person that sold me my ST which will be 3 years ago this June.

He's been on at me to trade it in and go for the RS for some time now. He told me that there is going to be a special edition RS in matt black with the above power output....surely not - can it handle that much power?

If only the RS had the option of 5 doors

The black edition was shelved a long time ago.

It may make a appearance but I very much doubt it.

RS in black would look evil.

I reckon salesmen should write childrens books. Amazing overactive imaginations

I dont believe it was ever planned for Matt Black, it was going to be PB, with a few tricks

Ford had not yet decided but the Matt black would be a wrap and not painted because its too difficult to produce painted. Repair is still an issue and discussions are taking place . The Tech people hope it does not happen and hope to have different look as in Autoexpress.

They may or may not bring out the RS in black. I personally doubt it,but it certainly wouldn't have 385 bhp. Think the salesman is getting confused with the SCC 385 version

It was posted on our sister RS site about a week ago


There was also a photo of a black one in Performance Ford a couple of months back. Apparently it belongs to a tuning company and thats as much as i remember

isn't it something to do with mountune?!? its the only (as performance ford put it) "well known brentwood based tuning company" that i know of.... Also i read in auto express that ford are releasing a 350bhp Clubsport version of the current RS, also some other bits about the new 2013 version of the RS being a hybrid... hmmmmm....
