The engine driving Ford Performance Racing's Car of the Future Supercar is about as far removed from Ford's EcoBoost engines as you can get.

But, in the lead-up to the 2013 season, the bellowing V8 racer will be used to promote the carmaker's efficient turbocharged engines.

The small mills are already available in the Falcon large car and Mondeo midsizer, and the upcoming Focus ST hotbox and EcoSport compact SUV will also be driven by EcoBoost engines.

Ford's EcoBoost-branded V8 Supercar will join stablemates representing the technology in overseas codes, including NASCAR and the World Rally Championship.

“EcoBoost is the future of Ford’s engine technology globally so it makes sense that we use Car of the Future (COTF), the future of V8 Supercars, as our platform to promote it,” Ford Australia motorsport boss Graham Barrie said.

“Ford Performance Racing’s first Falcon COTF will carry the same EcoBoost livery that all of Ford Racing’s official teams around the globe have run throughout the month of August."

FPR boss Tim Edwards said the Falcon racer will wear the EcoBoost branding during testing through 2012, before the team unveils its new 2013 livery in the new year.

FPR drivers Mark Winterbottom and Will Davison are second and third in the Driver points ahead of this weekend’s Sydney Motorsport Park 360 at Eastern Creek.
