Everyone loves a fast Fiesta - including us. Everyone knows someone who’s owned one, or has owned one themselves. They’re fun for the everyman, and unbeatable value for money. Which is why when Ford asked us back down to its Heritage Centre - a (purposefully) nondescript shed in deepest Essex - to drive some old, fast Fiestas, we just about bit its hand off.
It’s all in honour of the ST200, the latest version of today’s ST, which from the factory has more than twice the power of the very first XR2s. Progress, huh? It’ll be a few months before we get a a go, but if (most of) the oldies are anything to go by, it’ll be an absolute riot.
