The above article does not have that much info on the new RS, but the March issue of TopCar has some. Something like 229kw delivered to the front wheels (yep, no AWD on this one). The Ford RS people seem to think it will deliver the power just fine with the help of some fancy diff they have developed. Time will tell I guess.
We never got the previous one, thanks to our fuel. But with the introduction (and relative success) of other similar type cars, Ford might think of getting some examples in.
Your thoughts? Personally, I'm hoping if it comes around to SA, I would be able to afford it by 2010/2011.
