Video: Ford teasing Focus RS500 limited edition | Rpmgo.com



Ford took the hot hatch concept to a whole new level with its 301 HP Focus RS model, but as you may have heard, an even more powerful edition is brewing for the Euro-only hatchback model.

While we revealed that it might be called ClubSport, it seems the Blue Oval will stick to a simpler denomination, and has just started teasing the RS500 limited edition through a special microsite. Nothing certain is known, as we only have a nighttime lap of the Lommel Proving Ground in Belgium with the new Focus RS500, but it’s obvious that it will be limited to just 500 units (a 500 HP Focus is still a bit overkill).

Also, many are pegging the new output of the 2.5-liter engine to be around 350 HP, a level reached by many tuning programs for the regular RS. Expect modifications to the styling of the car, the aerodynamics (a larger wing is seen at the beginning of the video) and many more.

Hit the jump to check out Ford’s teaser video of the Focus RS500, which proves that it can still corner, even with that extra power.
