2012 Ford Focus ST-R Priced at $98,995

With an illustrious past in motorsports, Ford expands its racing activity by introducing the Ford Focus ST-R, a turn-key race version of its popular hot hatch.

Right out the box, the ST-R will be eligible to race in a selection of professional series including the Grand Am ST Class, World Challenge ST Class, Canadian Touring Car, as well as European endurance racing events, such as the Nurburgring 24. What's more, while most competition vehicles are exclusive to well funded race teams, the Focus ST-R intends to be sold to amateurs and privateers that wish to get their start in racing.

While the Focus ST-R is a serious racer, it shares a lot of hardware with the regular ST. The body is fundamentally identical; the same dashboard, center-console, and door handles are used although the interior will be stripped of everything else; and a tuned version of the regular ST's 2.0-liter EcoBoost will be used. The substantial changes include an FIA-regulation roll cage, racing brakes, racing suspension, and hip hugging racing seats.

Racing conversions don't come cheap. Hand over $98,995 and the local Ford dealer can order your very own Focus ST-R through the Ford Racing catalog.
