High-Performance Ford Focus Concept to Debut at Paris Auto Show

Ford will debut a concept version of a high-performance Focus model at the upcoming Paris Auto Show. Calling it an “exciting performance model” it will be a concept and not a production version, but it’s likely to be quite close to reality with Ford already announcing plans to deliver a “global performance model” of the new Focus using EcoBoost technology.

This won’t be an RS model and Ford recently announced the turbocharged 2.5-liter 5-cylinder in the current Focus RS has been discontinued as it no longer meets increasingly strict emissions requirements.

We’re excited by the possibility that this new high-performance Focus (possibly named ST in Europe and SVT in the U.S.) will get a 250-hp version of the EcoBoost 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, however, there’s also a strong possibility that we’ll see a smaller turbocharged 1.6-liter EcoBoost 4-cylinder with closer to 180-hp.

    An auto show is aboelutsly one of the events that people would attend. They'll consume more time looking for the best cars and large amounts of money just to buy one or two. Car collectors often attend to such events. However, there are individuals who are also enticed to attend car events because they enjoy looking at or touching beautiful cars.
