2012 SEMA: Ford Focus ST-R [Live Photos]
Despite being a dedicated race car, this shares some stock body panels with the standard Focus ST. The 2.0-lite EcoBoost has been kept, but it’s been turned into a high-powered monster by the guys at Ford Racing.
Chassis upgrades include a sporty track suspension setup, variable ration steering system and performance brakes.
The interior is stripped out and filled with the FIA-regulation roll cage. A racing seat assures you the perfect racing position and places you in reach of a six-speed manual gearbox.
"Because the Focus ST-R is a production-based road race car, it features stock body panels and production parts where possible," said Jamie Allison, director, Ford Racing. "People who buy one will get will get a fully prepared race car that will only need communications equipment and the customer's decals to go racing. We've already had significant interest in this vehicle from numerous established race teams."
