It’s been made clear that the all-new For Focus RS is to have no gimmicks, exaggerations or extras that don’t serve a purpose. This sets the 2016 RS above the typical boy-racer cars out there and gives it a definite feel of class. But who better to explain this than Ernesto Rupar, Ford Europe’s supervisor exterior designer:
“It was felt the old RS’s look would be over the top for this new car. Everything you see on the new RS has been added for a purpose; there’s nothing unnecessary.
“We went through around five designs to get to this – one of the designs had air vents on the bonnet, but they had no real purpose so they went…We were looking at the RS3 and its classy style.”
Design features include:
- Huge side air vents on the front bumper
- Aggressive, flared grille
- Visible intercooler
- RS badge-branded rear spoiler
- Two-angled exhaust
