Ford confirmed a few months ago that they will build a special edition Fiesta St200, a limited edition hotter verion of the current award winning hot hatch. The car will have a number of performance tweeks on top of noticable styling changes.
The standard 180bhp 1.6 EcoBoost engine is upgraded to give 197bhp and torque raised from 180lb ft to 214lb ft, this is in additional to an overboost feature which can give up to 15 seconds at 212bhp and 236lb. The performance upgrades drop the 0-62mph by 0.2 seconds to only 6.7mph and the top speed is increased to a whopping 143mph. The ST200 also features a modified front steering knuckle and rear torsion beam, which increase roll-stiffness to give an even sportier drive. The car has been lowered by 15mm, thanks to new front and rear damper settings, and the torque vectoring control has been enhanced along with a three-stage electronic stability control system. On the outside, the ST200 will look slightly different. It features a new Ford colour called Storm Grey and its 17 inch alloy wheels will be finished in Matt Black. The brake calipers will be painted red.
Unfortunately less than 1000 special editon Fiestas will be built, but with the aid of a Mountune upgrade kit, your current Fiesta ST can be modified to hit similar performance figures as the ST200. Take a look at our current excellent ST offers here; Dees of Wimbledon, Ford Fiesta ST
