The North American based automaker Ford has recently revealed the production version of the Fiesta ST, which will be wearing the 2013 model year in its name, during the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
As it was previewed by the concept car, the production version of the 2013 Ford Fiesta ST is coming with an aggressive body kit, made out of a trapezoidal grille, rear diffuser and a tailgate spoiler. The cabin hasn’t been left aside either by the American engineers and designers and the 2013 Fiesta ST is packing Recaro sport seats, carbon fiber trim, alloy pedals, sport steering wheel, SYNC infotainment system and a “sound symposer” which is able to filter the most attractive engine noises from under the hood.
The 2013 Ford Fiesta ST is powered by the company’s new 1.6 liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, which is developing a total output of 178 horsepower and it has a peak torque of 240 Nm (177 lb-ft), enabling the hot hatch to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in less than seven seconds, before reaching a top speed of 220 km/h (137 mph). Ford says that the new generation of the Fiesta ST will arrive in Europe in 2013 and more details on the model will be announced close to its launch.
