A couple of renderings with the Ford Fiesta RS are making us wonder why the carmaker isn’t planning on offering such a hot hatch.
A few weeks have passed since Ford has pulled the wraps of the new GT supercar and the new Focus RS and since then the company has opened Pandora’s box for rendering artists. The newest images with a Ford model are showing us what a Fiesta may look like in an RS variant, generic pills but considering the fact that the carmaker has denied such a model for this time, chances are we will never get to see it.
The two photos posted below are renderings signed by X-Tomi Design and they are showing a Fiesta with an aggressive body kit, with a front fascia similar to the one of its larger brother, the Focus RS, with wider fenders, with new side sills, with a new rear bumper, an aggressive diffuser hosting the two-tailpipe exhaust system, a large rear wing and some multi-spoke alloy wheels, to complete its looks.
As you probably already know, the most powerful version of the current Fiesta is the ST, which is packing a 1.6 liter petrol turbocharged engine under its hood, producing a total of 182 HP (134 kW) at 5,700 rpm and 240 Nm (177 lb-ft) of torque, available at 1,600 rpm. The unit is connected to a 6-speed manual sending power to the front-wheel drive. You can find out more about the Fiesta ST by reading our review of it here.
