Designed as a concept for a new racing formula named "Global Touring Cars", this car may look like a Ford Focus however that's where the similarities end. Under the Focus bodywork you'll find a rear-wheel drive platform with a 5.0 litre Ford "Coyote" engine producing around 500hp. This platform was designed to fit a number of car bodies of a similar size to the Focus, such as the Audi A3 and Mercedes CLA.

 

The car made it's racing debut at the recent Bathurst 12 Hour, with 3 examples of the vehicle entered - all of which finished in the top 20 overall.
