Next up, iPad art director Owen Norris appears in Top Gear's long-term Ford Fiesta ST, smiling like someone who has something up his sleeve. Turns out he has. The 175bhp Fiesta ST is already one of our favourite hot hatches, but for Speed Week, Ford has allowed us to upgrade the little hatch to ST+ specification. Which consists of a £600 ECU and airbox modification by Ford gurus Mountune that adds a scouring induction noise, 10 per cent more torque and a 212bhp output - a bit more with overboost. Judging by the width of Owen's grin, it works.
