Ford may make single-seat road car

http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/pa...-seat-road-car

A road-legal Formula Ford single seater is under consideration, a company spokesman has told Autocar.
Speaking at the Paris motor show, such a car would be produced as part of a strictly limited run of between 20 and 40 cars and powered by a 1.0-litre three-cylinder Ecoboost engine.
A road-legal Formula Ford recently set 11th fastest time at Nurburgring, beating cars such as the Pagani Zonda and Lamborghini Aventador. A production version would be similar, but would produce around 160bhp, not the 205bhp of the Nürburgring car.
The Ford spokesman said a road-legal Formula Ford car could cost "under £50k" ready for both road and track. Discussions are proceeding "positively".

Do you think we can get Clarkson to squeeze into it?

Highly doubt he could fit in one.
If Ford were to ever go through with building a run of these, it would be interesting if more than a few got a tuned version of the 2.0L EB engine. That car also begs to have some F1-style aero bits front and rear (say, for track days).
