Ford FF1 To Make Its Debut At Goodwood

1 Mins read

Ford will unveil the new FF1, a Formula Ford inspired 1-litre track car, at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The car, powered by a three-cylinder EcoBoost engine, is a road-legal car capable of speeds up to 160mph and set the eleventh fastest time ever around the Nurburgring Nordschleife circuit, a 7 minute 22 second lap, lapping faster than the Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari Enzo and the Pagani Zonda.

The FF1 will be put through its paces up the Goodwood hill and will also be on display in the FoS-Tech area during the festival. The Tech area has become the UK’s leading exhibition promoting green and environmentally friendly technologies while also looking into the future of transportation.

Ford will also bring the all-new Fiesta ST to the Moving Motor Show, an event held on the Thursday before the festival. The Moving Motor Show acts as a preview to the Festival of Speed, but also allows manufacturers to demonstrate their latest products up the famous Goodwood hill.

The Festival of Speed’s sister event, the Goodwood Revival, will also play host to a unique Ford celebration. An all-Ford GT40 race, the Whitsun Trophy, will be the first time a dedicated competition has been made for the GT40 and will mark 50 years since the start of development for the iconic endurance machine.
