The 2012 Ford Focus is destined to be a hit as it was just released this year, bringing to America nearly all that Ford UK had developed over the years to produce a “global” car. But of course, there are always those who are hard to impress. That’s why German tuning firm Loder1899 has produced their own package for the new Ford Focus 2.0 TDCi hatch.
Beginning with power, Loder1899 takes the standard 2.0L diesel four-banger and reworks it to 192hp and a whopping 292 lb-ft of torque, up from 138 and 236 respectively.

Add a stainess-steel dual exhaust, a full RS-inspired body kit with optional carbon fiber, suspension tuning that lowers the car by 35 mm, LED daytime running lights, and carbon headlight covers and you have the Ford Focus Loder1899 Edition.
Wheels include 18-, 19- and 20-inch alloys, all of which differ in design. Prices start at just €27,695 or $40,501.17 for the car and just the power boost. The bodykit, wheels, and other aesthetic add-ons are extra.
Refresher: The 2012 Ford Focus is powered by 2.0L DOHC inline 4-clyinder unit with twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT), direct gasoline injection and E85 flex fuel capability. The engine produces 160-hp and 146 lb-ft of torque. With the SFE (Super Fuel Economy) package, the Focus delivers an EPA-certified fuel-economy rating of 28/40 mpg (city/highway). The 2012 Focus is offered in S, SE, SEL and Titanium trim-levels with prices starting at $16,270.
