New Fiesta NEWS!!! FIESTA ZETEC S EDITION FOR EUROPE!!!!

This car, looks hot, the color is hot, and the simple body kit/lip kit they put on it, is hot. And the roof spoiler...IS HOT. Anyway, the car is gonna come with a 1.6L engine producing aroud 118hp and will get 50mpg. 0-60 is a slow 9.9seconds, although thats not much faster then people with an automatic focus lol. Ford assures us that it is fun to drive and the sport model of the fiestas. I don't doubt them, that thing probably handles great and is a blast to zip around in. Heres the article.

I'll take 50 mpg and a 9.9 sec 0-60.... however, I doubt we'll get that lucky here, although some of those pics are of left hand drive versions. We'll just have to wait until they get the Mexican plant up and running.

I agree, but there is hope. I read an article where Ford is said to be putting together a plan to retool some of their US factories to build european cars. - http://carsportals.com/2008/07/20/fo...european-cars/

We will find out if this is true or not on Thursday.

Yeah I saw that, but keep in mind that's on Imperial gallons. With E-10, probably 50.

It's nice to see that Ford can out do Smart though.
