If you\'re looking to have some fun on the racetrack, we bet this 2008 Ford Focus Challenge Spec Race Car looks pretty darn interesting. It\'s a full race build done for a one-make series. In fact, as much as you might not have first thought about a Focus for track day fun, you know there is certainly an appeal in a car that was built to be sturdy and isn\'t made of rare/expensive materials that could scrape if you dig too deep into the apex. So as you look through the details, you\'ll see a rare, distinct, and hardy car that can hit the track for less than the price that some teams invest in their trailer.
The Focus coupe has sporty and compact lines that look good with a sporty graphics package and racing decals. And the 17-inch wheels have racing studs. So while there\'s still a nice shine on the Silver Frost metallic paint, your real attraction is about a racecar that looks the part. It appears there was a single-model race series utilizing similarly prepared versions of the Ford Focus coupe. It\'s sort of like the classic IROC races or Lamborghini Super Trofeo, only you don\'t need to be a professional champion or millionaire to participate. There were believed to be only 20 cars prepared for this series. This kind of rarity will still not create a million-dollar Focus if you hide it away for 30 years. But what it does mean is that you have a unique track entry with a story to tell. And it\'s not just the decals that make this one race-ready. Take some time to read the further details and look at all the pictures. It shows there was a solid investment in creating a true track car, and when you have professional-grade equipment, it means you are going to show some store-bought supercars your tail lights.
The interior is a pure competition machine. And you know that from the moment you spot the full welded safety cage. It also includes a racing seat, a five-point harness, a fire suppression system, a Sparco removable steering wheel, and a fuel cell in the trunk. This deletes things that get in the way, like the passenger seat, door panels, rear seat, center console lid, and door glass. It all makes for a Focus that focuses you on the best way to attack the tarmac.
The appeal of this one is about how you can have a hardy race car with affordable components, and the motor is a big part of this attraction. The 2.0-liter Duratec motor is a dual overhead cam motor developed in conjunction with Mazda. The whole engine bay is quite stock aside from a shock tower brace and upgraded exhaust header. The nimble fully independent suspension has been sharpened even further with SVT components. Plus, this has desirable features like a five-speed manual transmission, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes.
The sale comes complete with racing logbooks and extra SVT wheels. This is an alluring mix of available stock components and race-ready upgrades. In fact, it probably wouldn\'t take much more than a set of street tires to make it legal to hang a license plate on the back. It\'s almost the car you can drive right to the raceway! So if you\'re looking to spend some time in the paddock without putting yourself in the poor house, this Focus is an awesome track machine. Call today!!!
