Ford has a long history of excellent hot hatchbacks, from the Escort Cosworth to the current Fiesta ST. Now there's another model looking to join that exclusive list.
The new Focus ST is now the fastest version of the latest-generation Focus, and it comes brimming with features that its predecessors have never seen before. Adaptive dampers, an electronic limited slip differential, and anti-lag turbo technology that has filtered down from the Ford GT supercar.
Is that enough to make it the best Fast Ford of the current crop? We've been finding out at Ford's international launch, ahead of customer deliveries later this year.
