This 180mph track weapon has the same engine as a Ford Mondeo

Who remembers the JP1 from Project Gotham Racing?

What happens when you give a Ford Mondeo engine to the people at Cosworth? Well, you end up with the Palmer Jaguar JP1, a trackday prototype that makes the most of the Ford Duratec V6.

  • It doesn’t really matter where the engine came from, it’s power to weight ratio that makes this quick. It’s no different than using the rover V8 in loads of different vehicles.

  • Broken splitter? No problem! Love those kinds of track cars :3

  • My stock 2010 Ford Fusion with a 3.0L Duratec V6 was rated 249 HP out the door. 270 from Cosworth isn't much of an improvement.

    • I thought that as well...I have seen 263 as a HP rating for the that crank HP, or at the wheels?

    • Crank and I believe that is the Fusion Sport 3.5 L V6. I have the SEL 3.0 L V6 which I may have misquoted, is 240 hp at the crank. Stock.
