Ford Fiesta ST spied at N├╝rburgringCould debut at the Frankfurt Motor ShowWith the Frankfurt Motor Show just around the corner, Ford is wrapping up development on the Fiesta ST.Caught undergoing testing on the N├╝rburgring, this prototype is slightly more camouflaged than previous models. Despite this, the production car will feature modified fascias, a tailgate-mounted spoiler, a sport-tuned suspension and a dual exhaust system.Under the hood, power will likely be provided by a 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine that produces 180 hp (134 kW / 182 PS). It will be connected to a six-speed manual transmission, but a six-speed automatic will also be optional.

The next performanceThe 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show provides an important preview of what could be the next performance vehicle in the Ford Performance Vehicles product pipeline - the Ford Fiesta ST Concept.Muscular and sporty, the Ford Fiesta ST Concept is inspired by the Ford Fiesta WRC. It features a dynamic sports chassis and a high-performance powertrain with a 1.6-liter Ford EcoBoost┬« engine, yet is capable of delivering impressive fuel economy.Target performance levels for the Ford Fiesta ST Concept are 177 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft. of torque, enough to propel it from 0-60 mph in less than seven seconds. A top speed exceeding 136 mph is targeted.The advanced design of the turbocharged, four-cylinder Ford EcoBoost engine - connected to a six-speed manual transmission - means the Ford Fiesta ST Concept is forecast to deliver CO2 emissions of less than 140 g/km.A global Ford Fiesta ST would also extend the proud, 35-year history of delivering high-performance Fiestas in Europe, including the Fiesta XR2 and XR2i, RS Turbo and the more recent first-generation Ford Fiesta ST."With the Focus ST and the Fiesta ST, enthusiasts will immediately understand what a Ford ST model promises and what each model shares in terms of balanced performance feel, style and driver features," Capito said. "We've developed both vehicles from the same DNA. They are born performers that know how to make drivers smile."
