This race car concept, powered by the Blue Oval’s latest 2.0-liter Ford EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, is the first to benefit from a collaborative effort between Ford and race teams around the world that have already built and raced successful Focus race cars.
This teamwork has resulted in a global racing platform using a common Focus body and a safety cage built to FIA regulations--a competitive platform that can be tailored for regional competition, based on different rules.
The vehicle also features AST performance coil-over adjustable dampers, Ford Racing upgraded sway bars with adjustable end links and front brakes with 320 millimeter two-piece rotors and race pads. The 18 inch wheels and Hoosier race tires put the finishing touches on the exterior.
Inside, there is a sole Recaro racing bucket seat, an AIM MXL Pista data system, Ford Racing fire suppression system and six-point safety harness.
According to Ford, there has been tremendous interest from the racing world in the new Focus, which could only mean that a Focus Race Concept could be heading to production and eventually a race track near you.
