Ford Focus RS Sedan is Just Begging to be Built

With all the fanfare and Internet buzz, it goes without saying – Ford has a winner with the 2016 Focus RS, a car that answers all the questions of the enthusiast car buyer. Is it powerful? Quite, it has more than 315 horsepower on tap. Can it drift? Sure, it totes a techy new all-wheel-drive system. Cool factor? Obviously, just look at it.  It is by definition a very, very hot hatch. But not everyone wants a tuned and hoonable hatchback. That's why the digital manipulators at X-Tomi Design chopped the Focus' capacious boot and turned the RS into a four-door sedan...and a very sporty one indeed. Looks good, doesn't it? RELATED: Take a closer look at the all-new 2016 Ford Focus RS Hatchback Ford has in no way implied that there ever will be a sedan variant of its pint-sized bruiser, and a look through the 'RS' lineage doesn't give us much hope either. The first generation Focus RS arrived in 2002, dressed entirely in Imperial Blue, and only as a three-door hatchback. The 2009 RS reboot packed a potent Volvo-derived five-cylinder, but the same three-door layout. Nevertheless, if Ford rolled out an RS sedan to rival the current Subaru WRX STI...we predict they would have some buyers getting in line. The new 2016 model makes landfall on US shores for the first time ever, and does so boasting a turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine knicked from the all-new Mustang. All 315 ponies get put to the ground through Ford's new continuously variable torque vectoring all-wheel-drive system, which should ensure it's light on its toes. That all sounds very good indeed.
