    I just sent an email to one of my contacts at Cosworth to at least make sure it's not an April Fools joke. Looks pretty real from the materials in the picture.

    Of course I already have mine.

    Hope it is so. Two of my contacts honestly do not know or aware of a cosworth edition. One of them is really in the know too, obviously not on this one. Thought the head of the RS was that of cosworth, but no real mention or badging. Cosworth can't keep their hands off the RS so I would not be surprised to see a cosworth RS. For me that would be the iceing on the cake. Bet the bottom end can take more than 420lbft to the ground. Hope it sells in the states, if not I'm sure mine will end up cosworth spec for sure.

    Cosworth Focus RS edition reveal set for April 27, 2017

    A Cosworth Edition of the Focus RS is set to be revealed in the U.K. on April 27th. Could this be the RS500 or something completely different? And, will it be a Europe only or world-wide option? I guess we will find out soon enough...

    Damn, I admit when I trip. I'd love to be wrong, but, as of now, I'm not convinced this is real.

    Cosworth has their 30th anniversary coming up for the Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 and mentioned this on Twitter from their post on 30 March.

    This cover will be for the May edition of Motorsport Magazine.

    With keeping with tradition, there MAY be something to this.

    Remember last year they did the back to the future focus? I saw it on the site that day so I'm sure they did something this year as well. At least they have a sense of humor.

    I like the Honda one! I have an angry emoji horn on my truck... It says F U and makes them think they're being run down by a train!

    They had a low-profile spoiler option on the RS site on Saturday.
    Don't be afraid to look back, just never slow down.
