History of the Formula Ford EcoBoost
Back in 2012 Ford considered selling road-going versions of the one-off Formula Ford car powered by the one-liter Ecoboost turbo engine. This car blitzed the Nurburgring in 7 minutes 22. There was a lot of talk at the time about Ford doing a limited run of 50 cars but it never happened. We saw an opportunity to possibly convert these cars for the street as Ford had done. This is one of the only race cars that has ever been offered as kit that actually has a direct racing heritage. One of the most overused phrases used in automotive journalism is “It is like a race car” in this case “This car really is a race car”. See Chris Harris video:
Our kit comes with front and rear wing (installation required). We will eventually have a few other engine-transmission options besides the original 1.6 liter EcoBoost engine. In the USA we sell this car as a kit car complete cars can be offered outside of the USA. The FF200 can be registered as a road legal car depending on where you live provided your kit car when completed complies with all local, state, federal regulations governing kit cars.
The road legal package comes with the all the necessary equipment (installation required) to comply with most local regulations in most states or countries. If you are outside if the USA check with your country for specific requirements.
New or used engines can be sourced directly from Ford, Ebay, engine suppliers, local salvage yards, salvage auctions or Craigslist. Our kit cars are currently configured for the Ford EcoBoost 1.6 liter engine. We have a few recommended supplier engine suppliers under vendors on our website. We take no responsibility for recommending any of these vendors.
