Ford's latest Fiesta S1600 boasts 132bhp and has a top speed of 120mph
23 February 2011

Ford has introduced a new, more powerful version of its Fiesta S1600.

Limited to just 500 units, the Zetec-S-based Ford Fiesta S1600 uses a 1.6-litre Duratec engine, producing 132bhp and 118lb ft of torque. That compares to the previous S1600's 118bhp, a car which has now sold out to be replaced by this model of the same name.

According to Ford, the new version has a top speed of 120mph and 0-60mph sprint time of 8.2sec - an improvement of 1.7sec compared with its predecessor.

Features of the limited edition version include a revised front bumper with flared splitter, extended side skirts, large rear spoiler and diffuser and 17-inch white alloy wheels. Also available are white or blue liveries, with contrasting motorsport stripes.

On the inside, the interior features heated leather sports seats, leather steering wheel and handbrake and motorsport mats.

Prices for the Fiesta S1600 start from £15,895 and are available to buy now.
