Previewing an exciting new performance model - the new Focus ST - Ford is demonstrating to performance enthusiasts they don't have long to wait for another special model from Ford Team RS. The new Focus ST - sporting around 220PS and finished in brilliant orange for its Geneva preview - will be introduced towards the end of 2005.
Powered by a turbocharged Duratec ST 2.5-litre, 5-cylinder engine and equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox, the Focus ST promises, in its specification and its distinctive design features, to raise the new Focus's reputation as a driver's car to new heights.
"When performance enthusiasts see this car, they are going to have high expectations. The Focus ST is going to live up to them," said Jost Capito, who heads Ford's racing and performance arm, Ford Team RS. "This car looks fast from its design, and every functional attribute is being engineered to deliver on that expectation."
