The not-so-new Ford Mondeo has received an RS digital makeover from Hungarian artist X-Tomi Design.

Even though Ford introduced the current generation Mondeo in Europe back in September 2012 at the Paris Motor Show, it took them more than two years to finally put the car effectively on sale on the old continent. Now, X-Tomi Design decided to transform the mid-size model into a hot hatchback worthy of Ford's RS badge, following a speculative "ST" treatment applied several months ago.

According to a recent report, a Mondeo/Fusion RS is in the works with a V6 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine developing more than 400 HP (394 kW). Even if this is true, the car will likely be out towards the end of the current-gen's lifespan as it seems the Blue Oval company's strategy is to launch the RS version late in the car's life. They have done this with the Focus RS (and previous-gen) and will likely do it again with the Fiesta RS.

The Mondeo RS seen in these speculative renders has been envisioned with a more aggressive body, fixed rear wing, dual oval exhaust pipes, a lowered sports suspension and some chunky wheels teamed up with low-profile tires and enlarged brakes.
