Ford's Hoonalicious Fiesta ST Concept - Intel

The Fiesta ST Concept is motivated by a 1.6-liter Ford EcoBoost.

The Frankfurt Motor Show offered us a peak into the performance potential of Ford’s mighty mite, the Fiesta. Most of us are familiar with Ken Block’s sick Gymkhana hoon machine but don’t forget, it’s a full-tilt rally car. The Fiesta ST Concept combines eye-catching, muscular and sporty styling with a dynamic sports chassis and a high-performance powertrain capable of delivering impressive real world drivability more focused on fuel economy and low emissions than doing donuts around a guy on a Segway. With the Fiesta RS World Rally Car and Fiesta Rallycross cars currently demonstrating the potential of Ford’s global small car in the toughest of international motorsport events, there could be no better time for Ford to offer customers a glimpse of what is also technically possible with the road-going Fiesta.

Like Ford’s World Rally Championship contender, the Fiesta RS WRC, Fiesta ST Concept is motivated by a 1.6-liter Ford EcoBoost. The stock street version in the ST Concept uses direct injection, Twin-independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) and savvy tuning to pound out 180 horsepower, which is a respectable specific output of 112 horsepower per liter. Of course the concept car has seductive bodylines and a motorsports-inspired suspension, which should carry over if the ST Concept moves into production.
