Ford Reveals Fiesta ST Concept

Ford Reveals Fiesta ST Concept

On the heels of the 2012 Ford Focus ST release, Ford unveils the Fiesta ST concept at the 2011 IAA Frankfurt Auto Show in a production-ready guise and hints at how the future Fiesta ST model may look when it joins its older brother in the global small car portfolio.

The 3-door Fiesta ST concept will be powered by the WRC-inspired 1.6-litre turbocharged “EcoBoost” engine featuring Twin-independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) creating a possible output of 180 hp and 240 Nm of torque propelling it from a standstill to 100 kph in less than 7 seconds with a top speed exceeding 220 kph. Mated to a 6-speed manual, the engine is tuned for better fuel economy and to deliver CO2 emissions lower than 140g/km. Tuned suspension geometry ensures active and capable handling.

A lowered stance, widened wheel arches filled with 17-inch alloy wheels, “Molten Orange” paint colour and full ST body kit incorporating a honeycomb mesh grill and a rear diffuser mirror the styling of the Ford Fiesta WRC. Recaro sport seats in a high-contrast interior continue the theme on the inside.

We like the idea of a Fiesta ST but similar to the Ford Focus ST; we are unsure if this model will ever make it to our local market if it goes into production.
