The Ford Fiesta has received the RS treatment from Hungarian independent artist X-Tomi Design.

The attached renders have some background as Ford Performance manager Tyrone Johnson has already announced a beefier version of the Fiesta is in the works and will be positioned above the ST model. It will be based on the current chassis and chances are it will be out within the next two years. X-Tomi Design decided to envision a Fiesta RS based on the three-door version and with the Liquid Paint blue as applied on the Focus RS and the new GT but this special hue won't be commercially available.

The more potent Fiesta is being developed by the newly established Ford Performance division which was formed by merging the RS and Ford Racing branches. The hotter supermini will probably come with a four-cylinder 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine developing somewhere in the 220-230 bhp region taking into account the 1.6-liter EB inside the Fiesta ST (US-spec) puts out 197 bhp (147 kW).

The added oomph will be matched by a more aggressive body as illustrated above, together with larger alloys, stiffer & lower suspension and a rear wing along with some interior cabin enhancements such as body-hugging Recaro seats and a sporty trim with more aluminum accents.
