Carlo/Andy - What was the weight of the old focus fully assembeld??

This is going to be without doubt an amazing car.

I dont think people appreciate how much the weight will transform the overall feel and drivabilty of the car. Not that it looked like it needed it.

Keep us posted excellant news!


2008 is going to see some impressive things happen in the Ford world

Wow - i am in total awe of this. Wieght saving potential from all the carbon parts should be massive!

Wonder what the old power/weight ratio is, and what the new one will be?

1247 is heavy your right

But hell thats light for that car Andrew, fairly large chassis + considering cage, 4x4 etc.

Be fantastic to shave that weight of the new car, even better if sub 1000kg.

Power -weight ratio

Be interested to see how the roof skin will attach to the new shell (thinking of this myself) . Could you PM contact detials of the company

Reckon this one should be all satin black, black wheels, etc., stealth fighter style! Really enjoyed watching Andy last year, next year should be even better!
