    If the hype surrounding Fordís new Focus RS hot hatch is anything to go by, the carmaker may finally be convinced that a Fiesta RS should follow.

    And it may already be in the pipeline, with reports out of Europe suggesting the baby RS will arrive in time for the Fiestaís 40th anniversary in 2017.

    Germanyís Autobild reports that the Fiesta RS will be powered by a 1.6 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing up to 183kW.

    Thatís the same 1.6 litre four-pot that powers the current Fiesta ST, with power boosted 36kW for the hotter RS.

    While a Fiesta, um, fiesta in 2017 seems like a logical move for Ford, itís the ST that may stand in the way of an RS model being part of the celebrations.

    If your ef is stock then that little fiesta is making a fair chunk more power haha... Ef's were 165kw stock.

    If this is true that sorta throws a spanner in the works for me, I'd be all over this like a fat kid on cake (me on Pavlova)

    Even if it still is FWD if its got a mechanical LSD like the LV Focus RS that'll do me just fine.
