Ford Europe Confirms High-Performance 2009 Focus RSRay Wert12/17/07 8:43amFiled to: New Carsford Focusford focus rsEuropeFocusFordRs40EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkThis image was lost some time after publication. Along the same vein earlier of cars we're just not getting here in the United States, Ford of Europe just confirmed they plan to bring a new high-performance model of the Ford Focus to market in 2009, a Ford Focus RS. To go along with that announcement, FoMoEurope has apparently hired the same advertising team in charge of the reveals of the new Subaru WRX STI and the new Porsche Cayenne. But the car itself will be based on the new Focus ST and as we've already seen some pretty good spy photos of the new high-po Focus, we're not overly concerned about this new shot. Although Ford of Europe isn't revealing any technical details other than the car being "rally-inspired", one thing's for certain — it'll be better than what we've got on these shores bearing the same model name. Full press release after the jump.
