The Ford Focus RS is one of the compact high-performance more interesting. Account with an engine 2.3 Ecoboost 350 horses, which are distributed among the four wheels depending on the running conditions and the driving mode selected. By its power, and the system of all-wheel-drive, is located at an intermediate point where it has no clear rivals, except the A45 AMG from Mercedes, which will benefit him even more.
however, there are always customers looking for something more and that can be tiring or quickly adapt to the performance of a serial model. 350 horsepower for a compact are not exactly few, but there are always those who want a little more. For these people, the trainer american Hennessey has presented a specific preparation that increases the performance of the powerful 2.3 Ecoboost from the Focus RS.
Hennessey is known for making preparations of authentic infarction in models of very high-end. In this case, has taken the compact, sporty and has endowed him with a greater power, although equally we could have expected something more spectacular. The the increase of power has been 55 horses that is not bad, but, if you think little, I will tell you that the peak torque has gone up from 470 Nm (which is already a couple very high) to no less than 576 Nm, a figure much to consider.
to achieve such figures, Hennesey has replaced the air filter with a higher flow, a exhaust system specific and a profound modification of the electronic control unit of the engine. The preparer charges nearly 5,000 u.s. dollars for this preparation, but you will have to send your car to the united States to get it updated.
In any case, the preparer has room for improvement to make a empowerment to an extreme, although the price will obviously be much higher; but sure in little time you’ll have.
