“RS is a worldwide brand with a rich heritage that motorsports enthusiasts know and love,” Dave Pericak, global director, Ford Performance, said. “Our RS badge has a natural connection to racing, and we have a passionate, dedicated team on the project. We’re excited to honor the history of Rallye Sport by pushing every aspect of performance and design to the limit.”
