You are here
What do we have here? A Ford Focus RS that’s been given a once over by those clever chaps at Mountune, liberating an extra 25bhp and 30lb ft of thrust from the already-thrusty 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine. For the non-mathematicians among you that takes the total to 370bhp and 376lb ft, and drops the 0-62mph time from 4.7 seconds to a Porsche 911-worrying 4.5 seconds. Top speed remains at 165mph. There goes the warranty… A-ha! That’s where you’re wrong. The FPM375 Power Upgrade, to give it its proper name, is fully compatible with the base vehicle warranty, so you can still claim for mechanical failure. It will set you back a mere £899, too, and can be fitted at any Mountune-appointed Ford dealer in around 90 minutes. So what do I get for my money? Big wing, ceramic brakes, semi slicks?
