Question 2009 Ford Focus RS fake pics?






Cleaned up and joined images to create full 3/4 front view:



UPDATE:

I was half asleep earlier, but is it just me or do these pics look FAKE? The side intakes def dont match between the front 3/4 view and the side profile. Fog lights look VERY fake and dont appear in the side profile. Wheels might be fake too.

I remember reading that the new Focus RS will have close on 300hp going through the front wheel.

Total maddness.

Either Ford has mastered torque-steer or this will be the hairiest ride ever.

Tis a shame FoA will not release something of this sort. At least the bodystyle...

Shouldn't the RS be AWD to mimic it's rally brother? gah... Anyway.

The fog lights definitely look fake.

Definitely a fake. Look at the rear lower reflectors. One image they're clear, the other they're red.

One is clear because it's a reversing light and the other is a fog light.
