Ford Focus Active review: a gripping yarn

  Ford Focus Active review: a gripping yarn Ford Focus Active review: a gripping yarnI’m sure Ford would like us to think of the Focus Active as one such vehicle, but the reality is that it’s a bit of a softie – more like a Citroen C3 Aircross or the upcoming Kia XCeed.

There's a redesigned Gulf Racing livery, too.

The Ford GT didn’t need any upgrades to be more appealing to supercar fans, but the Blue Oval did it anyway. There are two new special edition models, one which tickles the nostalgia button while the other embraces the glory of carbon fibre. Perhaps the bigger news is that both models – actually, all models – will also see a power boost.

We start with the new trims because frankly, the Ford GT in naked carbon fibre just looks flat-out mean. It’s called Liquid Carbon and as you can see, the GT’s lightweight structure is completely devoid of paint. That doesn’t mean it’s devoid of protection, however. Ford applies a special clearcoat that’s designed to highlight each weave in its carbon fibre skin. If that’s a bit too much carbon fibre for you, personalisation in the form of over-the-top stripes or the centre stripe from the Carbon Series can be added, along with painted mirror caps. Carbon fibre wheels are also standard equipment, for obvious reasons.

Larger intercoolers make the most of the air, and when you step on the accelerator, a new Akrapovič titanium exhaust system creates a deeper tone while shaving nine pounds from the previous setup. Combined with increased suspension dampening in track mode, it appears Ford is keen to keep the GT exciting in the face of increasing supercar competition.

Of course, all this will apply to just a very small portion of the motoring population. The GT is still extremely expensive, and Ford is still on track to build barely a handful each year until production ends in 2022.
