Ford Focus RS gets even more power from Loder1899 |

The Ford Focus RS is the most powerful hatchback in its class, with its 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine directing 300 HP to the front axle. But more even is newer a bad thing, at least according to German tuning house Loder1899, which has modified the American hot hatch and added 45 HP to the final output.

Among the customizations, the biggest role in increasing the power rating was played by a new stainless steel Y-pipe exhaust system, which added 20 HP to the already powerful RS. Other tweaks included a new air filter and many other optimizations to the electronics.

Cosmetic enhancements include the lowering of the suspension by 35 mm and fitting a set of 20-inch Vertigo Viginti wheels made by Loder1899 itself.
