Development under way on new 330bhp Ford Focus RS

Development is under way on a new Ford Focus RS, about two years before the car is expected to be launched.

The third-generation Focus RS is again set to be front-wheel drive. It will draw its power from a turbocharged 2.3-litre, four-cylinder EcoBoost engine, derived from that of the 2015 Mustang.

A power output of about 330bhp has been mooted by insiders, while a limited-slip
differential and Ford’s innovative, torque-steer-reducing RevoKnuckle front suspension system will 
again feature among the mechanical specification.

Over the past year, Ford executives have been increasingly talking up the chances of a new Focus RS making production. Now, insiders have confirmed that it has been officially added to Ford’s future model launch programme after a business case was proven. Early engineering mules have been spotted on public roads as initial testing begins.

There had previously been doubt over the future existence of a third-generation Focus RS as a result of the standard donor Focus being a flagship for the ‘One Ford’ global car policy. This was originally thought to mean the end of regional specials like the Focus RS because of their limited global appeal.

In addition, the arrival of the new Mustang on European shores next year was initially seen as a further setback to a new Focus RS’s chances of production when it was announced, because the Mustang was expected to be billed as the One Ford global performance car.

Ford was also worried about a Focus RS stealing sales from not only the Mustang but also the Focus ST. Furthermore, Ford needed to ensure that an RS could be built alongside more humble five-door Focus hatchbacks without requiring a bespoke engine.

However, the success and now evolution of the One Ford programme have led to the sign-off for the new model. Ford is happy with how the majority of its models are 
now — or soon will be — established across global markets, and the attention can now in part turn to satisfying market niches with models like the Focus RS.

Next-Gen Ford Focus RS Could Get the Mustang 2.3L EcoBoost

Less than a month ago, spy photographers gave us our first look at what is believed to be the next-generation Ford Focus RS as it was testing at the Nürburgring, and now Autocar might have some good information as to what that car was packing under the hood.

According to the report, the 2016 Ford Focus RS will be powered by a version of the 2.3-liter inline-four that will be used in the 2015 Ford Mustang. While that engine has officially been rated at 310 hp 320 lb-ft, it sounds like the Focus RS could get some extra tuning to around 330 hp and 324 lb-ft.

Aside from the Mustang-sourced engine, it sounds like Ford had considered going with an all-wheel drive platform, but has chosen to stick with front-drive. A six-speed manual gearbox will be the only, and a new limited-slip differential will help keep all that power under control.

These would all come in addition to other Focus RS upgrades like the sport suspension setup and more aggressive exterior styling. What has yet to really be seen though is whether or not Ford finally plans to bring the Focus RS to the U.S. As the muscle cars wars are heating up to epic levels, it would be nice to see some more hot hatch action here in the States. With the 2015 Subaru WRX STI already on the roads and the all-new Volkswagen Golf R coming soon, there would be plenty of competition for another sport compact to join the mix.

With Ford just having introduced the updated 2015 Ford Focus ST at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Autocar guesses that this might be a good spot to launch the 2016 Focus RS. Regardless of where it debuts, we probably won’t see it until 2016.

Shelby America is Selling These 14 Prototype and Concept Cars

Famed Mustang tuner Shelby America is moving headquarters to Las Vegas, Nevada. Why should you care? Because it won’t be able to fit some of its most special concept cars and prototypes in the new building. As a result, Shelby is selling 14 prototype and concept cars to collectors. Instead of storing these special cars away in the company’s warehouse, Shelby says it would rather see these special one-off models in the hands of Shelby enthusiasts. See the full list of cars and asking prices below.

2013 Shelby Focus Concept: $50,000

Shelby upgraded this Ford Focus ST hot hatch with a whole new Eibach suspension, grippy 18-inch Michelin tires, and Wilwood brakes, while also adding 8 hp to the standard car’s 252 hp. It was shown at the Detroit auto show in 2013 and then went on the Shelby Road tour on its way to the company’s heritage center in Las Vegas.
