Ford Focus RS500 teased, can reach 400 hp

by SpeedLux

The upcoming Ford Focus RS500 is a monstrous variation of Ford’s already outrageous hot hatchback. Regardless of an extremely genuine model circling around the Nürburgring, there’s an opportunity Ford won’t put the vehicle on sale.

That’s per Autocar, which has a source asserting the RS500 is not really green-lighted. While the automobile above appears to oppose that declaration, the possible description is that Ford is doing double-duty– engineers and product planners are developing a vehicle– while the bean counters and factory managers figure out if there’s a strong enough monetary case to construct it. They would likewise have to squeeze another 500 devices onto the assembly line in Cologne, Germany. Report further includes that those functionalities are the main obstruction to the RS500’s production, despite the fact that a desire exists to have a star in the RS and ST range.

On the other hand, report suggests Ford will provide the brand-new RS500 a similar performance bump to the previous one. The previous Focus RS500 had 345 horsepower, 5 less than present base RS however 15-percent above the second-gen RS. If Ford applies the very same 15-percent bump to the brand-new vehicle, output would hit 396 horsepower. In some way, with the 400-hp barrier so close– and with the continuous rumors about the Mercedes-AMG A45 striking that magical figure– we can assume that Ford will discover a way to squeeze an additional 4 ponies from the 2.3-liter turbo.

Ford has refused to provide information about RS500.
