Ford Fiesta RS Speculatively Rendered

The Ford Fiesta RS is like a rumor that refuses to die. It was around back in 2007 when the ST used a 150 hp 2-liter engine and it's back in 2015, with a turbo twist.

The boss of Ford's go-fast division recently told Autocar magazine that a hotter Fiesta is on its way, without cornfirming or denying that it's an RS model.

Of course, this was blown completely out of proportion and soon after that, Auto Express wrote that it's learned the Fiesta RS will be launched soon and it will have all-wheel drive. Considering the limitations of the platform, that's a huge stretch of the imagination.

However, if fans start dreaming, building Facebook comunities and petitioning, it might actually happen. And what better way to light the fire of creativity than with an awesome rendering, like the one recently made by X-Tomi Design. He grafted the aggressive front end design of the Focus RS onto the little Fiesta, added larger wheels, a spoiler and twin exhaust.

To compete with the best superminis in the world, the Fiesta RS would need a 2-liter turbo engine with around 230 horsepower. Both the Audi S1 and the MINI JCW pack that much.

But we think the single biggest problem with the... [Read More]

Ford Fiesta RS with 250 horsepower mooted

Jan 31, 2015 - 7:05 AM - by ST2Focus

by Chris Bruce, Jan 29th 2015

We know Ford is unveiling a new Focus RS on February 3, and it's heavily rumored to arrive brandishing an all-wheel-drive powertrain and as much as 350 horsepower. The folks at Ford Performance have also promised they are working on at least 12 models through 2020, and that still leaves a lot of time to get additional exciting vehicles out the door. One of those could be an RS version of the Fiesta, according to Evo.

An RS take on the latest Fiesta would obviously need substantial boosts in both power and handling ability to warrant the work over the current top Fiesta ST (pictured above), which is already one of our favorite cars. Evo speculates that the 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder could be tuned further, possibly up to about 250 horsepower, and the high-performance hatch might even take some inspiration from the Fiesta WRC rally car with an all-wheel drive system.

An unnamed Ford spokesperson remained cagey about the chances for the pint-sized hot hatch to Evo, though. "We can't say anything at this moment, but we have promised to produce 12 performance models in the coming years. We'll leave it for you to decide whether that includes a Fiesta at this moment," the source said to the magazine.

Evo doesn't expect a launch across the pond until at least 2017, if it actually happens. Of course, there's the lingering question of whether such a niche project... [Read More]

New Fiesta RS May Join Focus RS In Ford’s Hot Hatch Fleet: Report

The Ford Motor Company is about to unleash upon the world a new generation of its Focus RS on February 3, however, the car may not be the only high-performance hatchback in the Blue Oval’s fleet for very long.

News has emerged that Ford is working on a version of its Fiesta hotter than the current ST, and this latest version may just don the RS badge as well.

The new Ford Performance division is set to launch 12 new vehicles by 2020, including the likes of the new GT supercar, F-150 Raptor, Focus RS, and Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT350R.

This means there are still a few empty slots, one of which could certainly be filled by a Fiesta RS.

Speaking with Autocar, Ford Performance exec Tyrone Johnson said work on a hotter version of the Fiesta was underway and that the global success of the current Fiesta ST, launched in 2013, is what persuaded manages to approve the project.

No doubt the launch of the rival Volkswagen Polo R also weighed in on the decision-making.

Talk of a Fiesta RS dates back to 2008 and really heated up following the debut of the ... [Read More]

Report: Ford Fiesta RS in Development Stages

Fresh on the heels of the revelation that the Ford Focus RS will make its way to the U.S., we’re hearing yet another rumor that a wild Ford Fiesta RS will jump on the bandwagon.

Ford has already confirmed that such a bandwagon will include at least 12 new models under the Ford Performance banner, and a possible Fiesta RS is as desirable as any of them.

The report comes to us from Autocar, in an interview with Ford Performance Tyrone Johnson. Johnson never outright says the words “Fiesta” and “RS” in succession, but he admits that the lovable Ford Fiesta ST is not the ceiling.

"There’s more to come from the current Fiesta,” Johnson told Autocar.

According to him, ST models are perceived as “enhanced” iterations of regular cars, while RS cars have to set themselves apart with a certain threshold of high-performance capability.

Whatever Ford Performance is cooking up with the Fiesta, it will be based on the current chassis and likely due by mid-2017.

An earlier report last year suggested we’d see a 230-hp Ford Fiesta RS by 2015.

Speculators called for a hotted-up body kit, a stripped-out interior, and serious racing seats.

The Ford Fiesta RS could also get bigger brakes, an upgraded suspension, and a limited-slip differential up front.

When the Focus RS arrives, it is expected to feature Ford’s 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine good for as much as 350 hp delivered to an all-wheel-drive... [Read More]
