    I personally think the next RS Ford creates will be a Fiesta class car



    RS Edition.

    The ASBO Orange Fiesta ST Performance Editions are now down to £21k for mint low mileage examples, they are 99% identical examples to the current ST Edition model, add a Revo stage 1 tune  and you have a seriously capable car, I love the blue but for a £6k saving, I could live with the Orange.

    I have the Fiesta Performance Edition ST, a real fun car to drive. Pistonheads recently did a video comparing  the blue Fiesta Edition and the Yaris GR and favoured the Fiesta as an overall package. Would love to see a Fiesta RS.

    9designs…nice one, did you go for the circuit pack? what colour? must say, it’s the car of the moment, it will be an amazing daily, my local dealer had September as the next slot for a buyer, just days before the national lockdown.

    Black with circuit pack.   Was able to adopt a cancelled order, so it’s June rather than November/December  delivery which is where new orders are out to.

    Looking forward to doing back to back comparison to my RS.

    Very nice, my brothers choice would be black, I love the look, just hate looking after it, whites like wash and go.

    Defo give the Fiesta ST the Revo treatment and it would wipe the floor with the others and still come in well under the budget of the others.

    Sadly not…..  plug a tuning box into the GRY and it gives you 300bhp,  it’s grip and handling will leave the ST behind…. nothing away from the ST, great car and for sure cheaper. …  Doubt a stock RS would keep up with stock GRY.

    I think, as we see more head-to-heads with the GR we will see that it is not a clear winner…..roll on summer!

    white is still so right ! not bad with white rims either !

     



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob, thats now been replaced by an RS knob innit.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    Yes, but it will be like a NB RS, every ******** got one 🤣……  Black is the rarest RS I believe, same is happening with the GRY according to the dealer.  So I went black, I like black anyway, the red looks a bit of the wrong shade or type.

    White will end up getting covered in rally stripes..like Shmeeeeeeee 😲

    It maybe quick and handle well but it is not a nice looking car. Sorry not for me.
