« Back Ford Mountune Focus ST m330
Mountune has been tuning Fast Fords for a very long time and we’re big fans here at BOTB.
From the sweet handling Fiesta ST m235 to the utterly insane Mk3 Focus m520, we’ve driven them all and love the way they go down a road. But now there’s a new Focus and Mountune have been busy there too.
The Mk4 Focus ST is a great package, using a detuned version of the old RS’s 2.3 litre Ecoboost engine with 276bhp and incredibly good handling and ride in a family hatchback.
But it really isn’t that fast, so Mountune set about creating a tuning package and the m330 was born – which means it now packs 330hp and 515Nm, which isn’t far off what the Mk3 RS had. It’s still FWD, so the 0-62mph time is only cut to 5.2 seconds, but the in-gear acceleration is scintillating.
To help with the look of the ST we’ve also added a set of Fifteen52 19-inch alloys with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres and a nice Mountune side sticker. All in all, it’s a great package that we can’t wait to get our hands on.
And you could win one in this week's BOTB Dream Car Competition!
