It appears Ford has de-iced the Focus RS...<p>New RS is an S60R in Focus body.<p> <IMG SRC="http://i3.tinypic.com/vrzyud.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: New hope for R aftermarket parts. (Johann)

Not just no, but hell no.<p>Edit: sorry but that's my initial reaction. I don't like Ford one bit. Hate everything about their styling, their design, their philosophy on everything from sales to engineering. Ticks me off that they own so much of Volvo and impact the quality that goes out of our R's.

It has our engine, brakes, 4C? <br>If so that is good news as far as generating a larger market for performance parts.

What you can't see is that the prototype also has electronically adjustable dampers, which are similar to the acclaimed FOUR-C system which is fitted to the Swedish four-door.<p>This set-up allows owners to alter the suspension stiffness to suit their driving style or road conditions at the touch of a button. As well as the four-wheel-drive transmission, the Focus RS also features the S60R's turbocharged five-cylinder engine. Although it has the same 2.5-litre capacity as the 217bhp power-plant found in the Focus ST, a bigger turbo means that the firebreathing RS will punch out in excess of 300bhp.</TD></TR></TABLE><p><A HREF="http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/news/66506/it_lives_focus_rs_still_on_track.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/n....html</A>

Re: (MrTippy)

In addition to the widely acclaimed 4C system, the new Focus has been specially designed with a turning radius of 45 feet, a performance figure previously unheard of in a car of this size.<p><IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> (joking... I hope)

Re: New hope for R aftermarket parts. (Johann)

here is a pic of the motor it is a little different then ours. The turbo is on the front of the motor and the intake manifold is on the back. So it is reversed.<p><br> <IMG SRC="http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/picture_library/dir_15/car_portal_pic_7555.jpg" BORDER="0">
