Ford has introduced the 2012 Formula Ford in Frankfurt.

Formula Ford is an entry-level open-wheel racing series found in many countries. It is considered one of the first steps for aspiring young racers ultimately looking to ascend into Formula One.

Dressed in traditional blue and white lively, the car has a tubular steel chassis, side intrusion panels and carbon fiber front/rear crash structures. Thanks to these changes, the FF is FIA-compliant which makes it eligible to compete in a variety of international events.

Like the Fiesta ST concept, the Formula Ford uses a turbocharged 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine with approximately 165 PS (121 kW / 163 hp) and 220 Nm (162 lb-ft) of torque. It sends power to rear wheels through a six-speed sequential transmission.
