At the 2010 Detroit Auto Show next month, FoMoCo will unveil the next-generation Ford Focus. Of course, we’d eventually like to see Ford bring the European Focus RS hot-hatch to the states so we can do things like this to it.
Meet the Ford Focus RS by Mcchip – a German based tuner that thought 300-hp was just not enough for this already wild hatchback. With some tuning modifications, Mcchip allows the Ford Focus RS to produce a total of 401-hp with a maximum torque of 451 lb-ft.
Mcchip is also offering other packages that bring output to 305-hp.
