Watch the first full footage from the first rotary engine in the new Ford Focus S
Posted On July 17, 2021
The first rotaries powered the Ford Focus in the early 1970s, and in a move that was inspired by the company’s other vehicles, the car was fitted with a rotary generator for power.
The new engine was not as powerful as the one in the current Ford Focus, but it was much more efficient and capable of running on a wide range of fuel, making it ideal for long trips.
But now, thanks to the first ever footage from Ford’s first rotar engine, we can see it in action.
Watch the video above to get a glimpse of the first real-life footage of a rotaries engine powering a Ford Focus.
Ford Focus is powered by a four-cylinder, four-stroke engine, but the rotary-powered engine uses a turbocharger, which converts the kinetic energy of the rotating cylinder into power.
This power can be used to drive the car in a straight line or in a spiral direction, or it can be fed back to the rear wheels to power the wheels in turns.
The new engine uses four turbochargers that can produce up to 600bhp, which is enough to power a car that is just under 12 inches tall.
The rotary drivetrain also helps the car get around corners.
It’s designed to help the Focus pull off tricky turns and turns with a bit of throttle, and it’s also used for the first time to assist in cornering the car when the car is moving at speeds of up to 60mph.
Ford has been using rotary engines for years, and the first production model of the new Focus, dubbed the Focus ST, will come to dealers in 2019.
