Ever since someone at Ford decided that it would be a good way to promote their new 1 liter three cylinder EcoBoost engine by dropping a tuned version into a Formula Ford open wheel racecar set up to be street legal they’ve been making sure that the enthusiast world knows about it.
Of course they took it to the Nurburgring, where it was timed on the northern circuit at 7:22, faster than an Enzo. Last weekend they took it up the hill at the 20th Goodwood Festival of Speed, in Brentwood, Essex, UK. With about 200 HP and weighing only 495 kg (~1,100 lbs) the FF1, as Ford is calling it, can hit 60 MPH in less than four seconds. Ford also says that the FF1 can also go as far as 118 miles on a single gallon of gasoline, but of course, that’s not when one’s foot is pinned to the firewall.
