When Hungarian pixel artist X-Tomi Design lets its creative juices flow, you’d better be prepared for a helluva good rendering. After X-Tomi offered the World Wide Web with his take on a wagon-ified 2016 Ford Focus RS, the same Photoshop wizard returns with the sedan variant rendering of the hottest hot hatch of the moment.

As you can see in the photo gallery below, X-Tomi didn’t go all wild with the 2016 Ford Focus RS sedan, but only elongated the actual thing in a similar fashion to what the Blue Oval has done with the 2015 Ford Focus and its sedan brother. Even the taillights and the trunk door were perfectly replicated by X-Tomi.

While the humdrum sedan makes do with a tiny boot spoiler, the rendering on hand adds a bigger wing a la the Subaru WRX STI, but its size isn’t on par with the humongous spoiler of the rally-bred monster from Japan. The blueish exterior color too might led you to believe that you’re looking at a Ford-badged WRX STI.

An aesthetic detail that sort of spoils the three-quarter view of the 2016 Ford Focus RS sedan rendering is the black, plasticky and pointy aerial. But then you look at the impressive aero diffuser, two exhaust pipes and those aggressive vents at the sides of the rear bumper, and it hits you: the Focus RS sedan is cool.

Unfortunately for us petrolheads, there’s no intel from FoMoCo on such a hot sedan or a wagon version of the 2016 Focus RS. Still, we’re thankful to the gods of high-octane gasoline and twin-scroll turbocharging that the Focus RS got the green light in compact hatchback format.

Now we’re waiting for the Blue Oval’s Saarlouis plant in Germany to gear up for production late this year, with first deliveries (United States of America and Canada included) slated for the first quarter of 2016.

Hmm.. that just doesn't do it for me... Hatch is the only way to get IMHO.

Subaru missed the boat by not releasing a new WRX hatch.

I kinda like what he did with the back. I'd still buy a hatch if both were available though.

I too am a huge fan of the hatch, but that rendering looks great!! If both hatch and sedan versions of the RS were available, I would consider the sedan. Consider the sedan then buy the hatch that is ;)

So many possible choices, Ford needs to capture back a portion of the performance sedan and performance wagon segments.

I keep coming back to this and the more I look at the rendering of the RS sedan, the more I like it! Don't get me wrong, the RS hatch is gorgeous, but that rendering of the RS sedan just looks mean!

EDIT: There's a huge market for Sport Sedans in the US. If Ford did offer the RS in a sedan version, it would fit in very nicely and do well IMO.

I could picture this as a Falcon model. Give it a wider body make it more muscular and throw in an Ecoboost twinturbo V6, DCT with paddle shifter I would be all over it.
