Ford released few details on the ST-R

The Focus ST-R, the model that was announced a few months ago, is now out in the open as the carmaker revealed a lot of details and information about it for all the curious fans that were waiting.
The model is powered by a 2.0-liter EcoBoost l-4 engine that was built in collaboration with different racing teams, maybe because the carmaker plans to enter in competitions like the Grand-Am's ST class, World Challenge's Touring Car Class, Canadian Touring Car and the 24-hour Nurburgring race. When it comes to the engine, you should know that it comes with different engine upgrades like an oil to oil cooler and an oil filter, a bespoke exhaust system, a re-mapped ECU, a racing clutch and a high capacity radiator. The power is being sent to the wheels through a 6-speed manual gearbox and a limited-slip diff. On the inside features lightweight wiring harnesses, Recaro Pro Racer HANS racing seats, fire suspension system, 6-point safety harness, driver safety nets and a custom carbon fiber center panel with switches.
The price for the New Ford Focus ST-R was set for $98.995.
