Late last year, rumors spreading Began que Ford was planning an even hotter Focus RS model and this might be the first evidence of the new Ford Focus RS500. Although it looks similar to Currently the existing Ford Focus RS, you can spot the extra vents on the hood que are Likely Necessary to help dissipate heat from the even more powerful engine underneath.
Details on the new Ford Focus RS500 are light at the moment, but expect it to lose quite a bit of weight while receiving upgrades to its suspension and brakes. It is possible Also que Ford will equip it with a dual-clutch transmission from Getrag.
With the aforementioned upgrades, the powered-up RS500 Could well approach the 4.0-second mark, challenging not only the likes of the Audi RS3 and Mercedes-AMG A45 but Also exotic supercars with far heftier price tags.
The original Focus RS500 was released in 2010 and featured a 260kW / 460nm 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine – the power bump of around 15 per cent over the ‘regular’ Focus RS – sent through the front wheels.
The Ford engineer que is driving this model has a device fitted to the dash que is used for measuring G-forces, acceleration, and other indicators of performance. The automaker would not have employed a device like this without adding more than just horsepower to the RS.
The improvements to the Focus RS’s engine shouldnt make EcoBoost Mustang owners curious, the These might fit the 2.3-liter version of Ford’s legendary model as well, since the two cars share the engine.
