  4. Hey,
    its a great car,

    this car was created for the sole purpose of sitting still while people look at it.

    Ford Racing built 3, one for show, and 2 for testing and development, one of them quickly had a oil leak which lubed the clutch and stopped it from transforming torque.
    front wheel drive,18x8 inch ford racing wheels,13 inch cross drilled and vented 1999 mustang cobra rotors with cobra 2 piston sliding calipers,

    horsepower 304 [email protected] rpm,
    torque 285 [email protected] rpm
    180 m/h speedometer = 280 km/h speedometer
    A 8000 rpm tack

    transverse front engine,torsen limited slip differential, prototype centerforce clutch, European MTX75 transmission case, Ford Racing MTX75 gears, 3 inch exhaust.

    but to see the rest read the august 2001 issue of sport compact car magazine...

    Thanks for reading <IMG SRC="http://www.supercarforums.com/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">

    This does more than just sit around for fat greasy exec's to look at. it beat a vette z06 around a track by a few tenths of a second. Which was hella more than anyone expected it to do and all those chevy guys ate a fat plate of crow. and yes ford provided the vette but motor trend tested it and it was the fastest one they had tested yet. this is a mean little car<!-- Signature -->
     
  6. Re: FR200 stats more than supercars has...

    Don't get me wrong i know that,

    but ford actually created this car to be a show car,
    they didn't intend on its release of being a performance race car.

    I was simply stating a fact,

    but as for it beating that vette,
    i read tons of car magazines, i missed that one, what issue is it ?

    Thanks a Bunch,

    Brandon

  8. Re: FR200 stats more than supercars has...

    it was oh sh** i think it was ummm motor trend 2001 april or something like that, basically a spring issue i believe...

    anyhow the silver one was suposed to go against the vette but due to testing being done at another city and track they settled for the show version which is heavier than the silver one and well has a bad As* system that litterally puts it at competition level for systems..

    anyhow the car beats the z06 vette in every aspect (silver one does)

    specs:
    0-60 4sec flat
    0-100 ?
    1/4 uner 12 secs at either 11.7 or 11.8

    this is mean, and well some of the parts on it are showing up at ford racing parts stores, so ford is selling 90% of the parts on it for use on normal focus'...the only thing not is the body kit and (sometime later in future ford hopes to bring it out) and the base widening kit

    I too read the article in MotorTrend. Quite impressive for a show car. The article brought a smile to my face.
     
  10. Re: FR200 stats more than supercars has...

    It's the silver one that u see there the one tested was the show car that has more weight and tuned down abit

    the silver one was made for nothing but performance testing had the most hp the least weight and was the fastest, ford said it in one article about the silver one for the specs part i will see if i can find the exact article or something in that effect for u though

    umm i found that they also made a pure red on and yellow one pinkish one and silver one and suposidly had a black and blue one at the ford racing garage...

    but oh well yea this car is freaking fast freaking fast and good torque for a turbo car, i will try to get to u were i found those specs though i believe it was motor trend or car and driver or something get back to me soon

    one sweet car

    I read that article too, and I noticed that many MT readers got angry at them for putting this expensiveFord Racing toy against the Vette...
    I like the Focus, but this doesnt really look good I mean its like ... aero-kit overkill<!-- Signature -->

    300 hp out of a turbo inline 4 is nothing. A turbo S2000 can hit 350+hp without a prob. A turbo RSX Type S can hit over 300hp without trying. This car is a wannabe celica. Ford makes too many concepts that they cant follow up (gt90)
     
  13. Re: FR200 stats more than supercars has...

    i know a lot about this car e-mailme at [email protected] and i will tell u a lot about this car.

    Yianni64:
    "A turbo RSX Type S can hit over 300hp without trying."
    A few things, cars don't "try", they are not living things.
    Secondly, due to the inverted style of the rsx an efficient turbocharging setup has not yet been produced. In which case i would like to know how you came up with your information. Lastly a turbo"charged" s2000 is not a good comparison; originally the Focus was designed as an economical family vehicle, whereas the s2000 was designed to be a sportscar, strangely resembling a porsche, how can you compare the two? Simple, you cannot. Personally I reccomend researching your topic before making an ill-advised statement.

    If this car beat a Z06 corvette, which by the way handed the M3 its ass on a platter, it can definatly put a German car to shame. Think about it
     
  16. Re: FR200 stats more than supercars has...

    he shaitan where are you from becuase i know what your name stands for you devil.
    anyhow this car has a quiet impressive statistics. true the look is for me soso, but i believe the new capri will be using similar engine with even more horses.
    one more thing i don't think s2000 with a turbo work to good.i think they already have the psi very high on that car, and it will be too much strain on the engine you just can't put a turbo on it and get that much more horses. i think its kind of like the f1 cars they are pretty much at their max.
     
  17. Re: FR200 stats more than supercars has...

    Why didnt they make it 4wd?
     
  18. Re: FR200 stats more than supercars has...

    do high performance front wheel drive and 4 wheel drive vehicles rip the CV joints to shreds? cos my friend wants to buy a audi v8 saloon but hes not sure bout the front wheel drive part
     
  19. Re: FR200 stats more than supercars has...

    You said it was front wheel drive, its four wheeldrive i know that for a fact.
