I'll have to take a look.   Did they rework the shell to incorporate the strengthened areas in a hatch mk3 RS?

 

It was a shame that they didn't build an estate RS, it is the one aspect of chopping in my ST3 estate that I regret, the loss of practicality however it would have meant two different sets of crash tests as they mentioned in the documentary.

That looks so much better than the hatch, I always said the estate looks much better looking & the proportions more balanced.

If Ford had made the estate, I may, just may have been tempted.

No 3 door mk3 so if I had to have a 5 door practical car, then may as well be a really practical estate! :thumbsup:

Impressive donuts in the Estate and an impressive build by the looks of it.

 

Based on a Cat B right-off car and a ST Estate shell, so legit.  :yep:

That is quality and the car that Ford should have built.

Nice idea for a car. Shame they've spoilt it with such a :censored: video. Opens to them doing donuts. Oh dear.

i would rather a 4 door saloon anyday. Not a fan of the estate. I would go for a SUV over an estate anyday.

Depends on ones usage, having a dog it makes more sense with an estate, as it's easier to keep them protected in the rear load area. SUV's are taller and roll more driving round the lanes !

I have to say that does look fantastic. I would have seriously considered an estate when I was looking for my RS.
