Racing Sport? Road Sport?

“RS” stands for “Rally Sport,” “RennSport” (German for “racing sport”), or simply “Road Sport” depending on the context and the car manufacturer. It is a designation used by several car manufacturers to denote a high-performance version of a standard car. These RS models often feature more powerful engines, sportier suspension setups, improved braking systems, and more aggressive exterior and interior styling compared to their non-RS counterparts. The exact meaning can vary between brands, but it generally signifies a focus on enhanced driving performance and sportiness.
