Ford will today reveal ahead of the Geneva Motor Show a new Ford Fiesta ST200 model that delivers 10% more power and 20% more torque, with 200PS and 290Nm from a specially calibrated 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engine.
The most powerful production Fiesta ever, the Fiesta ST200 will go from 0-62mph in 6.7sec, and will feature an exclusive specification including a unique ‘storm grey’ exterior, machined matt black alloy wheels and special interior detailing.
Production of the Fiesta ST200 starts from June with customer deliveries this summer.
“The Fiesta ST is truly beloved by owners and critics. The ST200 takes this special drivers’ car to a new level of power and performance,” said Joe Bakaj, vice president, product development, Ford of Europe. “I think it’s a future classic in the making.”
The Fiesta ST200 models also will feature red painted brake callipers and an enhanced interior with unique partial leather ‘charcoal Recaro’ front seats and contrasting silver stitching, alongside illuminated scuff plates and seatbelts with silver detailing.
The Fiesta ST200’s 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine can deliver an additional 15PS and 30Nm of torque for up to 15 seconds using ‘transient overboost’. Top speed is 143mph.
The Fiesta ST launched in 2013. Ford has since sold 30,000 Fiesta STs in Europe, of which over 19,200 were in Britain.
