Ford Motor Company for the Twinster All-Wheel Drive System with GKN Driveline

Ford wanted a system that would enhance the “drift” image and the torque vectoring performance of its Focus RS. GKN determined that a system that operated on the drive axles rather than the driveshaft would be additive and dramatic. Ford sought the expertise of GKN to develop the Twinster Drive System. GKN wrote all the software and manufactured all the components. The Ford Focus RS is marketed with a 4 position switch available to the driver that allows tailored Twinster torque vectoring regimens, a key "visible" element for buyers.
