Ford Focus RS 360 by Wolf Racing

Ford Focus RS is capable of developing 305 horsepower and 440 Nm of torque. With the help of Wolf Racing, the model is now capable of developing 360 horsepower and 559 Nm of torque. The ford specialist located in Germany offers this performance enhancement for only EUR1299, including VAT. The decorative stripes in silver, charcoal, blue, red, orange, yellow, black or white for 98 EUR and Wolf stickers from three Euros as well as aluminum pedals including foot rests for 193 Euros are indicators for the stronger Ford. With the Wolf RS360, the tuner once again confirms its competence when it comes to refining Ford Automobiles. With the overall package containing the performance enhancement, differential lock and suspension, the engineers were able to transfer racing technology to the road. The new model will have its first official public display at the Essen Motor Show in November.

Wolf Racing lifts the Ford Focus RS into an own league

•Performance rises to 360 hp
•Engineers increase the torque from 440 to 559 Newton metres
•Differential lock provides best traction also when breaking
•20-inch wheels available in four versions

Already in the serial version, the Ford Focus RS outplays the competitors in its class. 305 hp (224 kW) and a maximum torque of 440 Newton metres are neither achieved by the VW Golf GTI nor the Opel Astra opc. And on top of this, Wolf Racing now adds the refinement.

With an optimised engine and turbo charger management, Wolf Racing lifts the Focus RS into an own league. The refined Wolf RS 360 renders 360 hp (265 kW). The engineers increased the maximum torque by 27 percent to impressive 559 Newton metres, which the Wolf RS 360 already provides at 3,100 r.p.m. The Ford specialist located in Neuenstein (Germany) offers this performance enhancement for only 1299 Euros including VAT.

As Wolf Racing has its roots in motor sports, the engineers did not only focus on a stronger engine. Only in connection with the multi-disc differential lock for 2500 Euros the serial car turns into a race car with official approval and homologation for road service. As soon as the torque rises, the differential lock interacts. Therefore, it is exactly the combination with the Wolf performance enhancement which unfolds the potential, as more torque is available at an earlier stage. When accelerating and also when braking, the differential lock with an increasing effect provides a higher traction at the beginning and the end of the curve. This guarantees a better curve speed and an optimal handling.

The coilover suspension for 1299 Euros provides best road holding conditions. Thereby, the lowering can be individually adjusted to the requirements of the road and the preference of the driver. Alternatively the lowering springs for 219 Euros lower the Wolf RS 360 by 30 millimetres and render an even more dynamic character. The lower centre of gravity facilitates the handling, so that the gained performance can be transmitted to the road through the front wheels.

The 9x20 inch wheels in multi-part look also enhance the dynamic appearance and can be obtained already from 399 Euros. In the version glossy black with stainless steel well, the contrast is emphasised very clearly and underlines the sporty character of the Wolf RS 360. Wolf Racing also offers the light alloy wheel in the dimensions 8.5x19 and 8.5x18 inches in finishes ranging from charcoal matt polished over silver varnished with stainless steel well up to matt black.

With its selected design elements, the Wolf RS 360 distinguishes itself from the serial Focus RS ab. Decorative strips in silver, charcoal, blue, red, orange, yellow, black or white for 98 Euros and Wolf stickers from three Euros as well as aluminium pedals including foot rests for 193 Euros are indicators for the stronger Ford.

With the Wolf RS 360, Wolf Racing once again confirms its competence when it comes to refining Ford automobiles. With the overall package containing the performance enhancement, differential lock and suspension, the engineers were able to transfer racing technology to the road.

The Wolf RS 360 is exhibited at the Essen Motor Show from November 28th until December 6th 2009 in hall 10 at stand 304. Further information about all Wolf Racing products is available at the web site www.wolf-racing.de
