Production Fiesta ST Unveiled!
Ford has revealed the new production-ready Fiesta ST at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show – with the car’s launch set for 2013.
By that time, it will be five whole years since the last Fiesta ST disappeared from Ford showrooms, and fast Ford fans will be delighted to hear that the all-new model will have 30bhp more than the much-loved Mk6.
The 180PS turbocharged 1.6-litre EcoBoost will see the Team RS-developed Fiesta ST hit 62mph in under 7secs, and have top speed of more than 136mph while delivering a 20% reduction in CO2 emissions compared with the previous Fiesta ST.
The Mk7 Fiesta ST sits 15mm lower than the standard Fiesta and features Ford’s enhanced Torque Vectoring Control system and three Electronic Stability Control modes, developed at the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
The exterior is almost exactly the same as the ‘concept’ ST unveiled at Frankfurt last year, with a bold new grille and aerodynamic addenda, and inside Recaro sports seats will appear as standard in a Fiesta ST for the first time.
With the car being available in the US for the first time, there is sure to be a vast number of performance tuning items available for the ST’s engine by launch time, so we can’t wait to see what the tuning companies have planned for the little car.
