The most powerful production model to date of the Ford Fiesta ST200 has been unveiled.
The new Fiesta ST200 produces 10% more power and 20% more torque with 200 PS and 290 Nm from a specially calibrated 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engine.
The ST200 sprints 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 6.7 seconds and delivers faster in-gear acceleration for improved drivability.
The car also features enhanced suspension and steering, elevating its award-winning dynamic handling and ride quality.
The model’s 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine uses a new calibration to deliver 200 PS – twice the power offered by its Fiesta XR2 predecessor 20 years ago – and 290 Nm of torque, with an additional 15 PS and 30 Nm of torque available for up to 20 seconds using transient overboost.
A 4.06 ratio final drive – shortened from 3.82 in the Fiesta ST – further enhances in-gear acceleration. Top speed is 230 km/h (143 mph).
Optimised braking is delivered with 278mm front and 253mm rear disc brakes, and a larger tandem brake master cylinder than standard Fiesta models.
The Fiesta ST200 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine’s low weight also assists handling and features technologies including turbocharging, high-pressure direct fuel-injection and twin-independent variable cam timing for high power alongside 6.1 l/100 km (46.3mpg) fuel efficiency and 140g/km CO2 emissions.
The ST200 offers bolder and more distinctive design, offered only with an exclusive Storm Grey exterior colour and with the distinctive 17” ST alloys wheels finished in matt black with polished rims.
Fiesta ST200 models also feature red painted callipers alongside the ST-specification large trapezoidal grille with honeycomb construction, dynamic front spoiler and side-skirts, body-colour rear diffuser element and large rear roof spoiler.
An enhanced interior specification includes unique partial leather Charcoal Recaro front seats that are further distinguished with contrasting silver stitching, as are the seatbelts.
Illuminated scuff plates incorporate the ST200 logo. Carbon fibre dashboard inserts, alloy-metal pedals and gearshifter, and an ST-specification steering wheel also feature for the atmospheric interior that contrasts dark materials and headliner with silver effect detailing.
