Ford Focus FR200
"The FR200 is a highly modified Focus ZX3 that includes a whole raft of special pieces intended to get enthusiasts salivating. It's powered by a turbocharged, intercooled, 2.0-liter Zetec four-cylinder engine that Ford Racing has breathed upon heavily. It cranks out 304 hp @ 6750 rpm, with 285 lbs. ft. of torque @ 3500 rpm. That's more than double the numbers for the stock engine, and suspiciously close to the output of Ford's Focus WRC World Rally Championship cars."

from the front, that thing reminds me of those little "penny racers" they used to have when i was a kid. kind of looks like a new celica penny racer.

Kind of looks like a piece of crap with a body kit.. although I have to say that Ford has finally done something right.. if you can't make a technologically superior engine, make it stronger and just turbocharge it..

it kinda looks like a shopping cart or baby carriage, and 300hp is kinda weak, but atleast it is turbocharged.
is it AWD, if not it should be.

hey...that DOHC zetec engine does pretty well for its size...considering it was made almost totally by ford for ford. and thanks to the focus, the zetec contour owners are getting lots of engine goodies available to them at a reasonable cost.
