Full-Race’s Electrifying Ford Focus RS Concept: SEMA 2016

Arizona-based Full-Race Motorsports will be turning up to next month’s 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas with this electrifying bit of machinery: a custom, 2016 Ford Focus RS concept of their own design.

Ford says that this new concept from Full-Race is good for some 450 horsepower, thanks to a BorgWarner EFR twin-scroll turbo, 3-inch turbo-back exhaust, cold-air intake, and upgraded intercooler, all of which were sourced in-house. To help cope with the extra power, the hot hatch has been fitted with upgraded CV axles and a 1-piece carbon-fiber driveshaft from The DriveShaft Shop. The latter has the added benefit of representing less rotational mass.

In addition, the folks at Full-Race saw to it that their new Focus RS concept can handle as well as it scoots by installing a Wavetrac front differential, KW Variant 3 coilovers, and Whiteline sway bars with adjustable end-links. The custom car’s minimalistic 19-inch wheels come from Finspeed, and are wrapped with Toyo Proxes R888 rubber.

On top of all this, there’s the exhilarating look of the Full-Race 2016 Ford Focus RS, which is attributable largely to the stark contrast of BASF Fire Orange and Stealth Gray paint hues. A rear diffuser, and front and side splitters from Velox Motorsports do their fair share to enhance the outward appearance of the 450-horsepower hatchback, as well. Inside, a 4-point, bolt-in roll bar from Watson Racing and 5-point Quick Fit racing harnesses from Schroth lend the SEMA build still more track cred. To top it all off, the car has been fitted with a boost-dependent water- or methanol-injection system and methanol gauge from AEM Electronics.

The 2016 Full-Race Motorsports Ford Focus RS will be on display at the 2016 SEMA Show, which runs from November 1st through the 4th at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Check back for all the latest news from the event.
