You know it, we love the Ford Focus ST here at EngageSportMode. So much so that we awarded the ST Mountune Estate the prestigious ESM ‘best car driven in 2013‘ prize earlier this year. So news of a new one has got us understandably excited.
Excited, and in suspense, as so far Ford is keeping tight-lipped about the revised Focus ST. Obviously, the enhancements and changes from the recently facelifted regular Focus should all be present, but that’s about all we know so far. Oh, other than the fact there’s going to be a diesel ST for the first time!
With over 140,000 Focus ST models sold worldwide, it’s pretty big deal for Ford, especially on the back of the success of the mighty Fiesta ST. So expectations are high, and if you’re at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on Friday you’ll get the chance to see the new car in the flesh. Based on the teasing video Ford has released, it sounds pretty naughty:
Most important thing from that video? The fact Tangerine Scream paintwork is still there. Excellent! There’ll also be the chance to see the new Mustang for the first time at Goodwood, along with a real vs. digital challenge on Ford’s special Gran Turismo 6 simulators.
We’ll bring you all the news on the revised Focus ST as we get it, along with updates from Goodwood.
