Ford Begins Production of Ford Fiesta ST

Production of the new Ford Fiesta ST has begun at Fords assembly plant in Cologne Germany. The new Ford Fiesta ST pegged as the fastest Ford Fiesta achieving a claimed 0 to 100km/h sprint in 6.9 seconds and a top speed of 220km/h.

The second-generation Fiesta ST has been confirmed for launch in South Africa in the second quarter of 2013.

Developed by Ford Team RS, the European arm of Ford Motor Company’s Global Performance Vehicle group, the new Fiesta ST is powered by a 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engine offering 132kW of power and 240 Nm of torque.

Ford has further refined the Fiesta ST’s renowned global B-car chassis with new steering, suspension, braking components, configuration and tuning. An enhanced version of Ford’s Torque Vectoring Control system, and a three-mode Electronic Stability Control system contribute to a rewarding and secure driving experience.

“The new Fiesta ST is a very modern performance car built on more than 30 years of fast Fiestas and a global development process,” said Juergen Gagstatter, chief programme engineer, Performance Cars, Ford of Europe. “This vehicle is a significant step forward, both in terms of our proud heritage of blending a powerful engine with a dynamic chassis, and also in achieving reduced fuel consumption and emissions.”
