Basically, we are talking about a turbocharged 1.6-liter engine that delivers 158 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque, being mated to a six-speed sequencial gearbox. We also get a small taste of the carmaker's new Kinetic design, but only as much as such a car can offer.
We have to mention that the Formula Ford is a proving ground for both drivers and engineers, with many of those who took part in in moving on to top-tier motorsport series, suh as Formula One or the World Rally Championship
