Exclamation New focus rs 300 hp

I just saw on an european car magazine pictures of the new focus rs, they are claiming 300hp in the 2.5 turbo engine, it seems to have several modifications inside the engine (stronger pistons), on the outside it seems to have different headlights, front and rear bumper and hood, the price is going to be 25K euros, it looks really sick, its going to be fwd and in the pic it seems to be on 18"wheels on the back and 17" on the front

Hey fritotec do you ever drive around the wayne/westland/livonia area?? I could have sworn i have seen your car on several occasions on merriman road. From your pics it looks like you have a checker kind of design on the side?? I have an orange one too, and if it is you take another road because i dont want people thinking our cars are not as rare that they are if they see 2 at once!! Im just kidding.lol. Is it you though?

Also guys don't get your hopes up but the current 08+ is only supposed to run till 2011 as of right now. I have been thinking lately and heres my thoughts. The Wayne assembly plant and Wayne stamping plant are connected, which means in Wayne, MI where the focus is built now is an integrated plant..i believe 1 of only 2 that ford owns. This means that they do not have to ship any body parts that are stamped, but rather convey them. This method is far cheaper. I highly doubt they would close this plant down due to it's production capabilities. As of about 3 or 4 years ago they also spent about 30 million expanding the stamping plant, so they also have quite a bit invested into it. I'm getting to my point here so don't stop reading yet... Well when they finish the focus they have to build something..right. There has been talk of a world platformed focus..both my parents work at the 2 plants and say that as of right now they slatted for a new car. If you put all of that together the right way maybe we can get a newly designed focus that will have some of those euro qualities to it...also we may get a face lifted 08. I'm just saying that i don't think that we have seen the end of the focus and the future may hold something for us. They had a SVT and a ST, I don't see why they would stop making at least a few performance foci. Also Ford NA has been doing a lot with turbos lately, ecoboost and what not so who knows...I may just be a optimist.
