New Ford RS500 to feature extreme weight loss

By Faiming_low on 24 Jun 2016 in New model

Attached Image While we just witnessed the widely-acclaimed Ford Focus RS land on our shores (yes, it is on sale now), back in its home country, Ford is already working on a more hardcore version of it. Fresh off the net, here are some photos of what the upcoming RS500 could look like.

Shot likely on the Green Hell by Carscoops, the article says that Ford is serious about making the car go even harder. Rumors include the use of plastic side windows and the replacement of some body panels with carbon-reinforced plastic to shed weight off.
