Rumour has it the 2.3 litre 4 pot as used in the Focus RS is a bit of an asthmatic old lump.

Whatever next?. A 1 litre 3 pot Mustang. :-\

I wouldn't call 313bhp and 430 nm of torque asthmatic  ::)

why not? Traditionally they had asthmatic non-crossflow straight sixes that couldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding. Brakes and suspension that weren't up even to that 'performance.'


If you want to experience the awfulness of an early Mustang, try a 1300 automatic mk1 Escort on drum brakes.


Early Mustangs were good looking though.

Those EcoWank engines are, well, wank  :y

We've had a few in and you have to rev the shite out of them to do anything. Sports cars (of sorts) and "eco" should go to different bars to drink!

It was only quite recently that I'd ever had a drive in one,but since then I've driven a fair few,mainly slightly earlier ones three of which were LHD with one of those being a Shelby.All the ones I've driven have been V8's so can't comment on the 4 pot ones and while none of them are a car I'd actually buy[because they don't suit what I need from a car] I must say that V8 soundtrack can be pretty damned addictive!

However, cylinder deficiency is traditional. Even the Mk1 had the option of a wheezy 2.8 i6 with barely 100bhp.  ::)

 0-60 is supposed to be around 4.5 secs,but I don't abuse the car as it will tear the tyres up, and tyres are well over £100+ a pop and also I'm still throwing money at the three Omegas as well,so I just drive the car steady without drawing attention to myself....if that's possible in a car that's bright Lime green. 8) ::)

You do like a challenge  ;D

At least if you do give it some, you have ESP on that... I can think of another car that only has ABS and no traction control :-X Gently does it I reckon ::) ;D

.....for a VXR8?

They must be Wanli 'ditchfinders' at that price. ::) ::)

A pair of rears for my car came to £540. :-\
