Road-legal Formula Ford EcoBoost takes on the Germans

Formula Ford EcoBoost takes on the Germans
Autocar’s latest video answers a question that nobody has ever asked; how would a sub-500 kg Formula Ford EcoBoost racecar acquit itself against an Audi R8 V10, a BMW M6 Gran Coupe and a Mercedes A 45 AMG in different environments?

The Ford, essentially a track car fitted with mudguards and lights, utilizes a tweaked version of the Fiesta’s three cylinder 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine, which now develops 149 kW (200 hp) allowing a scorching Nurburgring time of just 7:22. It’s also capable of sipping as little as 2.4 litres every 100 kilometres (118 mpg).

But can you drive it to work with a mug of coffee on the dashboard or the decomposing corpse of an irritating neighbour in the boot?
