Based on the Ford Focus, the RC2 Concept was created by sports car manufacturer Saleen in order to attract customers without without the financial power to buy an S7, for example. Planned to be sold at somewhere around $20,000, the RC2 features a body kit with custom front fascia, mesh grille, aggressive side skirts and small rear spoiler for added stability. Under the hood, it’s powered by Ford’s 2.0 liter four-cylinder Duratech engine, which has been received a minor upgrade and now develops around 158 hp (117 kW). Upgrades include dual-tipped exhaust, hood scoop and an updated suspension package (stiffer springs and larger sway bars). We were used with more important upgrades from Saleen, but they explained that the upgrades are not that impressive because the RC2 is designed to be sold as a ’starting point’ for tuners to build on.
