Fresh look for Fiesta WRC at pre-Finland test

2018 Ford Fiesta WRC

The Ford Fiesta WRC looks set for a facelift if recent test videos are anything to go by.

The videos and images across social media reveal a new rear aerodynamic setup.

The most successful car of the new generation WRC cars, the Fiesta has won eight events, and the 2017 drivers’ and manufacturers’ championship.

Lead driver, Sebastien Ogier, is currently sitting second in the drivers’ championship, 27 points behind Hyundai rival, Thierry Neuville.

M-Sport Ford drivers have been testing the car ahead of Rally Finland, which has many speculating about the new-look rear of the car.

Although nothing has yet been announced, the car has been seen testing across various social media channels.
