Ford had a similar idea last year, but instead of developing a road car to resemble a race car, it adapted a race car for the road
. The company's European team took a Formula Ford racer and modified it to barely meet regulations for street-drivability. The 180-horsepower 1.6-liter four was swapped out for a 205hp 1.0-liter turbocharged inline-three from Ford's EcoBoost range to give it a sub-four-second 0-60 time and enable it to lap the Nurburgring
Nordschleife in 7:22, faster than most supercars. Following its release in September, there were rumors that Ford could produce a limited quantity of these turbocharged road racers, but we haven't heard much about it since then.
