Wolf Racing tunes the Ford Focus RS

The standard version of the Ford Focus RS already outplays the competitors in its class. 305 hp (224 kW) and a maximum torque of 440 Nm 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 a higher 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.

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 9×20 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 8.5×19 and 8.5×18 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 will be exhibited at the Essen Motor Show from November 28th until December 6th 2009. Further information about all Wolf Racing products is available at www.wolf-racing.de
