They had to leave it as it is, maybe put led lights in some corners of the headlights, like eagleeyes. Looks like a big mouth car, or a shark at the dentist.

Not a fan really, the old ST personally seems better (goes for the Focus as well). I'd have preferred 200bhp as 180 unfortunately seems a little on the lower side, especially compared to it's competitors, but it'll be easy done as it's obvious why it's at 180bhp (so it doesn't take away sales from the Focus). Problem is even though it undercuts competitors, you may end up spending the same to get it to the 200bhp barrier, so is much saved really? If you want power for money in a new car, unfortunately the Corsa VXR still has it, but then again that is a crap box.

I'd have one if diesel wasn't better suited for my daily needs though, as despite not being as good in my mind as the previous ST, as I don't dislike it, and sat in the car I don't have to look at that horrendous front end myself, plus with a few bits it'll likely shift. That said, if my circumstances change and my mileage goes down, sure I'll consider one.

£365 for a Bluefin to get it to 200bhp.

The offical blurb from Fords:

Engineering/Dynamic Feature
The new Fiesta ST delivers significant ride and handling improvements, through the implementation of the
following features:
New Steering: Provides a quick response on centre and an even quicker response off centre delivered through:
• Short steering arm
• Steering angle is disproportionate to steering movement
Unique Suspension Tuning: Delivers better body control, enhanced cornering and steering precision through:
• Modified front knuckle
• ST unique tyres and unique springs/dampers
• Sporty rear suspension
Enhanced Torque Vectoring Control (eTVC): Provides better traction and less understeer via:
• eTVC applies brake torque on the inner wheel in a curve
• Cornering understeer is further controlled with additional software which leads to the ability of passing
curves at higher speeds.
Chassis
• Specially tuned and sits 15mm lower than standard Fiesta.
Electronic Stability Control
• Three ESP modes by switch
- ESP ON: 100% intervention by ESP system
- ESP Wide slip mode: Allows for a more exuberant driving style with ‘some’ intervention from ESP
- ESP OFF: No intervention from ESP only recommended for professional drivers who are used to
driving without electrical driver aids.
Engine: The refinement and exciting feel and sound delivered by the powerful 1.6 EcoBoost 182PS, 290
Nm peak torque engine, which includes:
• 1.6-litre Ford EcoBoost four cylinder petrol engine
• Combines high pressure direct injection, low inertia turbocharging, and twin independent variable cam
timing
• All aluminium design
• 0-62mph in 6.9 seconds
• 138g CO2
• Sound Symposer: Amplifies the throaty frequencies enthusiasts crave in performance cars.

Bodystyle
The Fiesta ST is available solely in a 3 door bodystyle, will be clearly identifiable through the following
exterior features ( as shown in diagram on page 4)
• Large black honeycomb trapezoidal grille
• Corner winglets
• Large rear spoiler with twin upper air vents
• Twin exhaust outlet
• Red brake calipers and Grey alloy wheels available as an option: ‘ST Style pack’


The MPG figures are quite impressive:
urban = 35.8
extra urban = 58.9
combined = 47.9

ST
Exterior Features Exterior Features
 17” Alloy wheels 
 Tinted Glass  Pr

End of April is when Pumaspeed get their hands on one, and they had the Focus about a month before the public, so a May release looks on the cards.

Looks great, not sure what the ride will be like after it being testing on the track. Tradationally this mean it won't be good. I agree that the old focus is better than the new one


Yeah, it'll probably be as hard as a rock ride wise. Hopefully the new suspension won't ruin it's day to day ride quality.

From Ford:

28th Jan: Production begins
18th Feb: Gate Release of launch vehicles
March: First delivery of Fiesta ST


Although that's subject to change obviously.

If the RS Focus were to be a 3 door then I might be interested. Not swapping my 5 pot for something that won't sound as good and not much (if any) faster than my mildly tuned and much lighter satsuma..

Don't even get me started on ST225's after the one at work is mint on a Cat B -.-

I'd prefer an mk2.5 ST if honest, just depends on what's available at the time. Ideally I'm looking into a Leon 2.0 TDI, unfortunately Ford don't have anything that can compete :/

:P I'll see, depends on what happens from now until then. If I keep my Fiesta I'll put a face-lifted interior in, bigger turbo, new exhaust, sport cat, larger injectiors, race air filter (possibly), bigger intercooler - then possible ST spec in diesel form, better looking car and what I truly want :P

Saying that, the 2 litre diesel Focus can be mapped to 210bhp from standard, just I'm not really such a huge fan on it. Prefer the Mk2.5.

And another car developed at the Nurburgring, James May will love this!

My only concern is torque steer, I'd be interested to know how well it can actually put down that 180 bhp.

Ford say it's got a modified front knuckle - maybe a cheaper version of the Revo Knuckle the Mk2 Focus RS has?
