According to AutoCar, with its second WRC win, Ford of Europe has announced some ‘strategic’ changes within its ranks hinting that a new breed of ST and RS badged models could be on the way. The leader on Ford’s RS team, Jost Capito, has been made Vehicle Line Director of Performance Vehicles, shifting his responsibility away from motorsport and towards the development of more new performance cars made for the road.
According to sources, the man responsible for the Ford Focus RS, could be working on an even faster RS, as well as a V6 turbo RS-badged Ford Mondeo and sporting ST versions of the new Fiesta and Ka that are on the way.
Ford recently launched the facelifted Focus ST which is powered by the same 2.5 liter 5-cylinder turbo engine that produces 225 horsepower.
Hey FoMoCo! Can we please get some RS and ST love on the stateside as well?
