About a year before its market launch, the upcoming Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500 (or GT 350 or SVT) has been caught doing rounds of the Nurburgring Nordchleife once again, only this time, it was also accompanied by another Mustang prototype - albeit one with a much smaller body-kit and a different exhaust note.

Renault went to great lengths to lighten their Megane RS in order to win back the title of fastest front-wheel drive car to lap the Nurburgring Norschleife, but it may all have been in vain, because another RS, the Ford Focus, was recently spotted testing and looked really fast and composed.

In case you didn't notice, that's the new Cadillac CTS-V chasing the 2016 Mustang GT500 or SVT or GT350 (we wish someone at Ford could at least confirm the name) in the video print screen above. Too bad we only get a few seconds from that encounter at the 'Ring. On the bright side, our spies bagged the aural signature coming out of the four pipes of the high-performance 'Stang.

From congested roads in Michigan to the Nürburgring racetrack, Ford continues to roll out and test prototypes for a super-hot version of the Focus with the heritage-rich RS badge.

Ford has more or less given on up on the idea of big minivans in the States, leaving the segment to Japanese brands like Toyota and Honda and even Korea's Kia, but that's not the case in Europe where it plans to launch the successors to the sportier S-MAX and the more utilitarian Galaxy.

2016 Ford Focus RS Tester Scooped in the USA

For years, we've been hearings rumors about the prospect of a scorching hot Focus with the RS tag, but Ford officials from both sides of the Atlantic have been deliberately vague about the subject. This time, though, it's not about hearsay, but about a prototype Focus packing some interesting performance hardware and which we believe, could be a test mule for the RS.

As you can see for yourself, Ford isn't even trying to shy away from the public nor is it dodging cameras on the road with their prototypes of the next hot Mustang, thought to carry the 2016 Shelby GT500 nameplate (unless the Blue Oval goes for something different like SVT or SVO).

Back in April, one of Carscoops readers took some shots of a heavily camouflaged Ford Mustang prototype with flush wheel covers (?) standing in traffic, and now, our spies nabbed a couple of similar, if not identical, testers driving around the Santa Monica Pier in California, and which we believe to be the next high performance version of the Blue Oval's pony car.

Set to make its debut at the Beijing auto show, the new Ford Escort that revives the old nameplate looks like it will be nearly identical to the concept that previewed it.
