Ford Racing is now taking orders for the new Focus ST-R turnkey race car, priced at a whopping $98995.
That sounds like an awful lot for a Ford Focus, but 100 grand is no money in motorsport. Ford Racing Parts is actually having a very good business with turnkey racing cars, selling them through regular Ford dealers. The lineup include Mustang FR500C, Mustang FR500S, Mustang Cobra Jet, Boss 302R, Boss 302S, and now of course the ST-R Focus.
This hatchback is powered by a 2.0 liter engine riddled with racing bits and pieces, and is intended for racing classes with production based specifcations, such as Grand-Am’s ST class, World Challenge’s Touring Car Class, Canadian Touring Car as well as the 24 hour Nuerburgring race.
The car is based on Ford’s flexible and competitive global racing platform which can be tailored for regional competition to meet local rules and regulations.
