Ford Eco Boost 1.0 hits the Nürburgring!

I blogged about this engine a while ago:

Ford have made a little 1.0 engine with a turbo, that can produce 123 hp. They’re planning on putting it into the Fiesta and the Focus, and I think the Mondeo too, although they’ll be making bigger versions as well, including versions to replace the big V6s that they make:

Anyway, the most exciting thing to happen to that engine is it’s been sent around the Nürburgring! They’ve tuned the engine to get 202hp out of it and stuck it in a Formula Ford race car, and it’s managed to lap the ‘ring in 7.22s!

That’s a crazy fast speed, beating a Maserati MC12, Dodge Viper, Ferrari 458.
