Ford Focus ST by Wolf RacingMonday, March 11, 2013 16:45 by Arman Barari
With 250 horsepower coming from a 2.0 liter EcoBoost engine, the new Ford Focus ST is a pretty hot hatchback. But Wolf Racing is not phased with the car’s performance. In their view a proper hot hatch should have at least 350 horsepower. So, just to be safe, they gave the ST 370 horsepower.
Their Focus ST gets a new air intake system, tweaked turbochargers, as well as a revamped ECU software, and that results in 550Nm of torque. To cope with this kind of performance , the tuner also fits the car with sport lowered suspension, dropping the car by as much as 5cm, and a beefier braking system.
Wolf Racing also offers a less powerful version with 300 horsepower, but you don’t want that. Regardless of the power output, Wolf’s ST gets a nice styling kit consisting of front and spoilers, side skirts, rear diffuser and a pair of twin tailpipes.
