2013 Ford Focus RS

There are many among us that are waiting for the Focus ST, while others that want more oomph under the bonnet, have their eyes on the all-mighty RS version. WCF’s photographers have managed to grab a couple of spy shots with the most powerful Focus version while undergoing some testing near the legendary Nurburgring track.

As you can see, these prototypes are early development mules, featuring RS-branded sports seats, unique alloy rims, a high-performance braking system and a center-mounted dual exhaust system, which doesn’t look that good, but my guess is that on the production-ready version it will look better.

More information about the RS is not available at the moment, but according to previous reports, the hot-hatch might come with a hybrid powertrian that uses a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine and a rear axle-mounted electric motor. If this will turn out to be true, the Ford Focus RS will develop about 300 hp (304 PS / 224 kW).
