That black one looks fantastic, love the red details. That will be a real head-turner. They should have made the exhaust visible from the back though, like they did with the Metal.

0-60 in 9. So that's about the same as the 125. Apart from the styling (which I like) what's the point? They may as well just offer this styling on the standard 125.

They both look quite good, but as above would of been better if they put a twin exit exhaust on.

How come ford release a 140ps version but mountune can only release 135ps? Strategic marketing perhaps?

I think the black edition looks fantastic though! The red surround on the grille and bumper lip looks brill, thinking of doing the same to mine but in blue :lol:

Ok guys sorry if this has been covered but there is a new fiesta due in August called the black and red editions. It will feature the critically acclaimed 1.0l ecoboost engine tuned to produce 140ps. I don't know if this is real or fake so please enlighten me

Meh, looks a bit much for the power if honest. Not a bad engine to it though.

Anyone know what options these come with as standard? The car in the autocar piece appears to have EATC and heated (cloth!) seats - are these cost options or standard trim? Feels like it needs a bit more than a paint job and small power hike to justify the price......

I think it's just like £500-£1000 more expensive.. When you factor all the options that this has over the standard car, which isn't that bad.. Because if you had the alloys powdercoated after buying the standard car you're looking at £75-£100 a wheel.. So all in all not too bad! :D

Yeah, maybe, but painting stuff (including wheels) a different colour to what you would normally, costs nothing extra.Having a different map in the ecu costs them nothing extra either. And you are losing out on free road tax. I am rather disappointed that there's no unique special extras included in the price, like exhaust trim, leather etc similar to what they did on the Metal editions.

Unless you are desperate for the silly paint job, I really don't see why you wouldn't just get a Zetec S and Mountune it.

Well unless you actually did want a Zetec S with black alloys. Plus painting alloys rarely is very durable.. Hence why it costs a great deal to have them powdercoated.

True, but it has weightier steering and different gear ratios! And after all the road tax is only £20..

And above all else RED STITCHING ;)

Fair enough, having read the press release, there's a little bit more to it I guess. Again, the cars in the photos have EATC as well as heated (cloth) seats and Sony navigation - the latter 2 were not availabe on the Zetec S - if some of these options are included in the price then that makes it more attractive......?
