End of the party

Ford releases special edition Fiesta ST. With black wheels. Good

Ford Fiesta ST500

The Fiesta ST is reaching the end of its long and illustrious career, soon to be replaced by a younger, sleeker, Vervier model.

But before the ST is quietly put to sleep and sold off to the local glue factory, Ford has released a special edition of its hot supermini to remind us why we'll miss it so much.

Called the ST500 - and you'll remember that Ford released a Focus ST500 last autumn - it gets a grey-on-black paintjob, red brake calipers, carbon-fibre style interior and, best of all, 17-inch black alloy wheels.

Black alloys are cool.

The ST500 will cost £15,000 and is limited to - yep, you guessed it - a mere 500 cars.

Mechanically it's all stock Fiesta ST, so the 148bhp two-litre engine remains untouched. If we ask nicely, can we get it Mountuned?

 

Now share it...
