The biggest news that's sure to excite driving enthusiasts about the upcoming Ford Focus RS is its all-wheel-drive system, coupled with its 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine.

Acceleration is sure to be excellent, thanks to its rating of at least 315 horsepower and four-wheel traction, and Ford promises 1 g of lateral acceleration. In other words, this hatchback will stick to the road like glue.

Although the car shown in these pictures is painted in the same special Liquid Blue color scheme first seen on the all-new Ford GT revealed last month at the North American International Auto Show, production models won't wear this hue. Instead, Ford says it will offer the Focus RS in Nitrous Blue, a vibrant four-coat metallic finish exclusive to RS, as well as Stealth Gray, Absolute Black and Frozen White.

There is still a lot of information we don't know about the upcoming Ford Focus RS, such as when it will go on sale in the United States, or how much it will cost. We do know, however, that it was developed with input from rally racer and Gymkhana specialist Ken Block, so we're expecting very good things when we do finally see this hot hatch hit the roads.
