At the end of the day, when you put your childhood dreams aside, here in the UK it is unlikely your dream supercar won’t really work out on a day-to-day basis. Speed bumps, lack of practicality and continual fear of curbing those £2,000 alloys whilst struggling to park would taint your ownership. This is why we love the hot hatch! It has all the performance thrills of a supercar but without the bills that come with it.
This is the finished production ready Ford Fiesta ST that will come to market next year. At £16,500 it is 1.6 litre turbocharged bargain. 0-62 is complete in under 7 seconds and it is said to do more than 136MPH. Power is rated at 178BHP with 177lb-ft of torque as an accompaniment. The ST is 15mm lower than standard and Ford’s RS division even tuned the chassis.
Keys please Ford!
