Ford Fiesta RS Gets Green Light, Hole In US Lineup Now Painfully Evident

Tipster Martin pointed us in the direction of the Dutch version of Autoweek, who have stated the Ford Fiesta RS has been approved for production. The car would of course be based on the 2009 Ford Fiesta and will be getting a turbocharged 1.6 liter four good for a speculated 200 HP. Making things even more interesting they say some of the interior bits will be chucked in favor of weight savings and help to get the little terror from zilch to 62 in six seconds. We're assuming since this would be a positively awesome car, it won't be making its way to US dealers... ever. [Autoweek.nl]
