Wolf Ford Focus RS

German Ford specialist Wolf Racing announced the launch of a power pack for the new Ford Focus RS. The Wolf Ford Focus RS is powered by the standard engine that has been modified to output 360 hp (265 kW) and 559 Nm of torque from 3,100 rpm. This represents a 27% increase in torque over the standard model. To achieve these figures, Wolf Racing optimized the Focus RS's engine software and turbocharger. The cost for the engine kit has been set at 1,299 or about $1,920 USD.

The car's multi-disc differential lock gives it greater traction when accelerating and braking even as it remains front-wheel-drive. The suspension can be lowered by some 30mm while the coilover suspension also helps improve road holding.

The package also includes 20-inch alloy wheels (399 a piece) in various styles and decorative racing strips available in silver, charcoal, blue, red, orange, yellow, black or white for 98.

The car will appear at the 2009 Essen Motor Show in Germany which takes place from 28th November.

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 meters 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 meters, which the Wolf RS 360 already provides at 3,100 rpm. 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 millimeters and render an even more dynamic character. The lower center 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 emphasized 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 aluminum 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
