Focus in on performance with the Ford Performance Focus ST-R!
The Focus ST-R race car concept is a dramatic example of Ford's global approach to product development. This concept vehicle, powered by the sophisticated 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 engine, was the first to benefit from a collaborative effort of Ford and Ford racers from around the world who have experience building and racing Focus – successfully! The result of this teamwork was a global racing platform – highlighted by a common body and a safety cage built to FIA regs – a competitive platform that can be tailored for regional competition, based on local rules.
The Focus ST-R race car concept was built with U.S. racing specs in mind. Throughout 2011, Ford Performance designed and engineered a complete – and competitive – Focus ST-R race car that was available for purchase by those wishing to compete with a Focus in professional and amateur road racing classes.
