My ST was Ford Factory Driven prior to delivery

Ford took my ST3 for a 21 mile test drive (a "test drive" sticker next to my window sticker with hand-written mileage notified me of this) before delivering it to my dealer, at which point it showed 24 miles on the odo. My car has been near perfect and the performance is as expected. My car has been driven 7100 miles since 11/8/2012.

My questions are:
How many of our cars were pre-driven by the factory?

Do the tested cars perform better/worse than the non-tested?

What does Ford check on these drives and do they give the cars a thrashing?
