Ford has released the first teaser photo of the next-generation Ford Focus RS - a more wicked sibling of the Focus ST - which is expected to go on sale in 2009. To be powered by Volvo’s 2.5L turbocharged 5-cylinder petrol engine, the powerplant kicks out about 280hp and spins around 400Nm worth of torque. These will enable the new Focus RS to sprint from 0-100km/h in sub-6 seconds, likely with all-wheel drive.

Due to make its rounds at auto shows next year, the new Ford Focus RS will be inspired heavily by the original Escort RS and RS Cosworth.
