Here in the States, we recognize fast Fords by their GT or SVT/ST badge. Over in Europe, fast Fords get an equally iconic badge: RS.
Ford has been making RS versions of everyday cars since the late 60’s. The RS’s never made their way over here, though. They were epic machines, but they just didn’t resonate with the American buyer. However, in recent years there has been a growing interest in small, European, fast Fords.
All of this plus the RS’s epic performance are the reasons the new Focus RS is one of the most anticipated new vehicles in recent memory. The official release of our very first RS is coming very soon. So take a moment and enjoy the complete list of RS machinery we never had the chance to enjoy.
