Ford Focus RS8

Ford Racing Performance Parts decided to take a Ford Focus RS and stuff a 5.0L Cammer crate motor. Ford decided to start with the RS version because of its sportier Euro appearance. The engine is a DOHC 5.0L V8 modular crate motor putting out 420 BHP and 365 ft.-lbs. torque. Ford Racing Performance Parts sells this engine for $14,995 on their site. The 5.0L cammer motor is based off the 4.6L Mustang Cobra motor. A Tremec five-speed HD transmission and a Ford Racing 8.8 inch differential is used to handle the power. To boost the cool factor the Ford switched the Focus from front-wheel drive to rear-wheel drive.
