Powerful Performance - The Ford Fiesta ST Ford Performance Edition

By: Lisa Harper

We're delighted to present the new special edition Fiesta ST Ford Performance Edition.

Designed & built for driving enthusiasts

Just 600 examples of the Fiesta ST Ford Performance Edition model will be made, making it a truly unique offering from Ford, especially given that more than 5,000 standard Fiesta ST models have already been sold since May 2018. 

The car will be finished in a striking Deep Orange paint colour which makes it instantly distinctive, while also generating a more dynamic and sporty look.

The Fiesta ST Ford Performance Edition is largely based on the bestselling Fiesta ST-3 trim level, however, numerous tweaks and upgrades ensure it is elevated into a class of its own. 

Dynamically different

The specially designed Ford Performance parts have been stringently developed to enhance the cars handling and performance. For example, the 18” Ford Performance alloy wheels are 7kg lighter than the standard wheelset. Plus the ten-spoke flow formed alloys are stronger and more durable than traditional cast wheels.  

Flow formed wheels are created when pressure is applied to the inner barrel of the wheel after it has been cast but while it is still spinning. This stretches and compresses the aluminium, helping to increase its tensile strength. The alloy wheels are then finished off with winter-resistant, high-grade triple layer Magnetite paintwork.

Perfectly balanced

The Ford Performance Coilover suspension pack comes with stainless steel damper housing and powder-coated Ford performance blue springs. This suspension lowers the ride height by 15mm at the front and 10mm at the rear. It has undergone extensive testing at Nurburgring Nordschleife by Ford Performance engineers. The suspension can be adjusted manually with 12 bump settings and 16 rebound settings for a personalised and finely-tuned driving set-up. 

Other added benefits of the Fiesta ST Ford Performance Edition are LED headlamps and an advanced B&O premium audio system. While a signature performance pack adds a specially-designed Quaife limited slip differential, launch control and performance shift light indicators.
