According to EVO Magazine, a senior executive at Ford hinted at the idea but declined to go into details. All he said was that the model would cost “well under $160,080 which would make it “a bargain next to the BAC Mono.”

The Formula Ford recently set a Nurburgring Nordschleife circuit lap time of 7 minutes and 22 seconds. The 1.0 liter EcoBoost used in the Formula Ford was a modified version of the 177-hp to produce 202-hp. The engine allows the tiny race car to go from 0 to 62 mph in less than 4 seconds with a top speed of 158 mph.
