It might have a 2.3L engine pushing well above 300hp through a Revoknucle (read: proper, mechanical LSD) and it might only be a 3 door design.

And its up in the air if it ever comes to America.

It'd be great if FRPP's offers a Torsen for the ST.

The RevoKnuckle system is a specific type of MacPherson strut suspension design. Whether the mythical new Focus RS gets a mechanical limited slip differential is a separate issue. The 2013 Focus ST doesn't have either system.

Thoughts?

Quote:
Following the merger of Ford's North American Special Vehicle Team (SVT), the European TeamRS and the Australian FPV divisions[37] to the development of Ford's global performance vehicles, Ford's Advanced Product Creation and Performance Vehicles director Hermann Salenbauch announced that the decision to sell Ford Focus RS/SVT to North America depends on feedback from the media and customers.[38] However, the product would only appear 2 years after the release of the third generation Focus models.[39] On August 4, 2011 Ford's global boss for small cars, Gunnar Herrmann, revealed to magazine Drive that the third iteration of the hot-hatch was in the works. New RS will be FWD with more than 305 hp (227 KW) which will be transferred to the road with so-called ‘Revoknuckle’ suspension. The new RS is expected in late 2013 or 2014 both in Europe, North America and the rest of the world.

Which doesn't mention anything about a North American version, unless I missed something.

Not gonna happen, market is topped off at the ST, were lucky we got that. Maybe an RS elsewhere, but not in the states.

It most definitely wont make its way over here. Just like the RS will never be AWD.
