Ford has released the first teaser photo of the next-generation Ford Focus RS, which is expected to arrive in showrooms in 2009. Ready to make appearances in auto shows next year, the Ford Focus RS will be inspired heavily by the original RS and the RS Cosworth Escort.
Power is expected to come from Volvo’s 2.5 liter turbocharged 5-cylinder engine that will produce up to 280 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. 0-60 is expected to come in around the low 5-second range.
