Ford Focus ST Concept

2010 Paris Motor Show introduces a global performance version of the new Focus: next-generation 250 PS Focus ST, which is a high-performance model and scheduled for 2012 launch. The car model offers its future drivers an intoxicating cocktail of exhilarating performance and handling, an addictive sound and muscular sports design.
The unique 250 PS Ford EcoBoost engine was specially developed for the new Focus ST to ensure that the car gets the muscular performance - and the inspirational sound - which it deserves. It also marks the first application of the four-cylinder Ford EcoBoost engine in a high performance model. Its engine manages to combine in a successful way three technologies: high-pressure direct injection, low-inertia turbocharging and twin independent variable cam timing.
More to this, the new Focus ST features a highly distinctive sports exterior, providing significant functional and aerodynamic benefits and clearly differentiating the ST derivative from other models in the new Focus family. Completing the vibrant exterior colour, the 19-inch alloy wheels have a warm, anodised Golden Graphite finish. Their sophisticated five-spoke design is contrasted by the brake calipers which are brightly painted in body colour.
The performance theme from the exterior is echoed inside the car, with a very bold high-contrast sports cockpit featuring Recaro seats, unique instrumentation and modern, highly technical finishes.
All in all,the car model offers 10 per cent more power and torque than the current European Focus ST,while the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions were cut by more than 20 per cent.
