Ford Focus ST revealed
Your new hot-hatch hero has arrived; behold, TopGearers, the new Ford Focus ST!
Posted: 14 Jan 2011
It's got 245bhp, a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-pot, has 20 per cent less emissions than before and is lower, stiffer and - hopefully - better than ever.
The new Focus ST has hit the Paris show floor, and Good News! You can option another colour than the 'Tangerine Scream' pictured above, and we'd say that was the option to go for (actually, it looks pretty good in the metal - Paris-attending Ed).
What should be cool though, is the handling. Ford confirms that the new ST will suffer a painful testing baptism via the now obligatory Being Nailed at the Nurburgring, along Germany's autobahns and knee-deep in our pot-holed and lightly destroyed B-road network.
The fruits of this labour should result in a big smile and big sales, so we'll keep you updated on the little runt's progress...
