Ford Fiesta RS WRC revealed

Mikko Hirvonnen looks happy with his brand new WRC weapon for 2011 – the all-new Ford Fiesta RS WRC, unveiled at Autosport today. The car will be run by the Ford Abu Dhabi World Rally Team, supported by Castrol – hence the exciting new livery. The RS complies to new WRC regulations, featuring a turbocharged 1.6-litre engine, based on the Ecoboost road version. But this baby comes loaded with four-wheel-drive and six-speed sequential transmission. Testing continues next week, in preparation for the opening round of the WRC, Sweden, 10-13 February. We can't wait to see the new cars in action, and find out if Mr Loeb can still dominate the sport, with the new regulation vehicle. Air horns at the ready!
