The Formula Ford EcoBoost Is Pure And Unabashed Awesomeness: Video

We thought it was great when Ford decided to stick its award-winning production-spec 1.0-liter three cylinder EcoBoost engine into a Formula Ford racer. The Blue Oval then handed the small, lighweight, and highly-nimble car over to professional driver Nick Tandy, who then proceeded to use it to lap the famed Nürburgring in an astounding 7 minutes, 22 seconds. And while that’s impressive in and of itself, it’s also plenty of fun to drive the road-legal version of the car on a public highway, which could be as good as it gets for the pure driving enthusiast.
