Ford Focus RS by Loder1899

German company Loder1899 worked to enhance the 2009 Ford Focus RS to 340bhp. Loder equipped the car with a new stainless-steel exhaust system in a Y-pipe form, which the company claims has made half the 40bhp power gain over the standard car. Loder1899 also gave the car a silencer that deepens the RS’s note while at the same time, lowering its maximum noise. A new air filter and ECU tinkering contributed to the power gains as well. Due to these modifications, the car is claimed to be able to accelerate 0-62mph (100 km/h) in 5.7sec (down 0.2sc from the standard car). Buyers have the option of lowering their RS by 35mm and opting for a range of alloys from 17-20 inches in size. Nitrogen-filled tires are fitted to the alloys as standard. The full kit is priced at around €6700.
