Talking Three cylinders 1.0 Ecoboost Formula Ford laps Nürburgring

Ford claims that its 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder can lap the Nürburgring faster than the Lamborghini Aventador, the Ferrari Enzo, and the Pagani Zonda. And, believe it or not, that’s true, when it’s bolted into a modified Formula Ford race car. The Formula Ford 1.0-liter EcoBoost lapped the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 7:22—two seconds faster than the Enzo.

What rocket! and the little engine did not break!

I wonder when it will be put in a go-kart!

Or, even cooler, a motorcycle! I think it would be frakkin sweet to see a Ford liter bike! I mean, hell, they're getting out of the 1/4 ton pick up, why not get into motorcycles? I'm not saying I'd trade my Ducati for one, but it would be cool to park next to the fofo
