Ford Ireland announced the other day a 350 PS power figure for the new Focus RS, but a company spokesman has described this figure as being inaccurate.

Our colleagues at AutoGuide were the ones who discovered the information on Ford Ireland's page for the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. We remind you that earlier this week in Geneva, Ford announced the 2015 Focus RS will produce "well over 320 PS" from its four-cylinder 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbocharged gasoline engine and according to Ford Ireland the exact figure is 350 PS (257 kW).

However, it seems that won't be the case as AutoGuide was contacted by Ford spokesman Aaron Miller who said the figure is not correct as they are still in the testing phase, with the final figures to be released closer to the model's launch. The Blue Oval company will kick off production of the Focus RS by the end of the year, with deliveries planned to begin in the spring.

As a side note, there's no word about the torque figure but Ford has previously mentioned it will be higher than the 433 Nm (320 lb-ft) available in the Mustang EcoBoost which has the same engine.
