    I saw that car in person when I was in the UK for business. I was never able to stop and take a picture of it but I drove past where it parked on a regular basis. The color is pretty different from Nitrous Blue but it still had me fooled the first time that I saw it. Until I saw the tail lights, that is. It's an incredibly good looking car, but it needs the EcoSport AWD system and a 2.0L EcoBoost to make me dump my RS for one.

    Body kit is great! Doesn't need al that power though. Make it 250hp and tell ford to hit print.

    I just googled Fiesta sales numbers and they are 25 percent of Focus sales numbers . You would think a Fiesta RS would be the right car to sell the Fiesta . If it was AWD and 2 door in the USA Id dump the Focus for one .

    Only problem I have with AWD is the added weight. It is pretty easy to get a FiST down to 2650 and some have weighed in the 2500's with minor weight reduction. But if they could at least keep it under 2900lbs it would still be a rocket with AWD. The FoRS has proven AWD doesn't have to be a huge handicap when things get twisty it just needs a diet. The FiST already has an awesome starting point where the FoST is already a bit of a porker. Depends on the goals but it isn't hard making close to 280- 300whp on a hybrid with the 1.6, but as you look into the chassis you start to see where putting power down becomes an issue.
