Ford Focus doing some serious record settings

Ford's 1.0-litre ecoboost Focus set 16 world speed records recently, an amazing accomplishment by the American auto maker.  However the help of Ford's world rally championship super start Jari-Matti may have helped attain this records a little easier.  The records were set at CREAM test circuit, located in France.


The little 1.0-litre Ford hits 0-62 mph in 11.3 seconds and has a top speed of 120mph, it does all of this while attaining 56.5mpg and having a C02 emission of 114g/km.
