Ford Focus RS receives Movit Performance brakes

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 24, 2010

Ford is about to unveil the new incarnation of the Ford Focus ST at the approaching Paris Motor Show, but it isn’t time yet to write out its current generation sibling, the Focus RS, which is getting raves after it got a high-performance braking system from Movit Performance.

The system is composed of Billet calipers that are built from aircraft spec aluminum and feature a progressive, vehicle specific piston arrangement that enables a perfect distribution of the contact pressure, even pad wear and good modulation ability.

It then gets Movit rotors that utilize a special alloy that guarantees the lowest possible wear. The inner part of the disc has a double directional ventilation system that offers a larger surface than similarly-sized discs.

This allows the disc to stay cool and fading is avoided as it offers a high level of heat-absorption and heat-transfer. The rotors also have a special perforation that gives a responsive feeling, even with wet conditions.

The kit includes Movit brake pads that offer a responsive pedal feel, as well as low fading. The Ford Focus RS Movit braking system can be painted in multiple colors, including Ultimate Green.

Taking inspiration from Ford’s success at the World Rally Championship, the design team has created the Ford Focus RS. There is a large, gloss black front trapezoidal air intake which looks visually akin to the Focus World Rally Car, a vehicle that can be used on the road but is designed as a motor racer.

The aerodynamics and cooling process are different from that of standard Focus cars. This vehicle gets hotter and needs to be cooled down more quickly and directly. Almost the entire body panels have been redesigned to create its distinctive shape. It is available in a new body colour of gloss black which gives the impression of dominance, darkness and moodiness.

There are new front and rear bumpers and integrated side rocker mouldings, which make the Ford Focus RS appear lowered. The wheel arches have been extended and rocker mouldings and vents enhance the sporting prowess of the vehicle. Using the Focus World Rally Car as its inspiration, it comes with a no-apologies rear spoiler that draws the eye.
