Ford Releases Slick-Looking Fiesta Sport Special Edition for Europe


Ford’s Fiesta may be celebrating its 35th anniversary this year but is showing no signs of slowing down as demonstrated by an exciting new variant – the Fiesta Sport Special Edition.

With eye-catching style it delivers a dynamic sports body and special styling additions, giving the compact hatchback Fiesta an even bolder, more distinctive and sportier appearance.

Powerful 1.6-litre engine options also ensure that the Fiesta Sport Special Edition delivers on the road. The new model boasts the most potent powertrain available in the current Fiesta line-up, alongside a powerful yet frugal 95PS Duratorq TDCi – which returns 107g of CO2 and a combined fuel economy of 4.1l/100km (57.4mpg).

The Duratec Ti-VCT petrol engine has an output of 134PS at 6,700rpm and produces 160Nm torque at 4,250rpm, combined with close-ratio gearing and a redeveloped exhaust system to give the Fiesta Sport Special Edition 0-100km/h (0-62mph) acceleration of 8.7 seconds and a top speed of 195km/h (122mph).

“The Fiesta boasts a rich sporting heritage and the combination of the free-revving 1.6-litre Duratec Ti-VCT petrol engine and dynamic, contemporary styling inside and out means the Fiesta Sport Special Edition is a worthy addition to Ford’s roll-call of performance models,” said Roelant de Waard, Vice President, Marketing, Sales & Service, Ford of Europe.

“Of course, the option of a 1.6-litre Duratorq-powered version also means customers not requiring such high performance can still enjoy a sporty character with improved economy, while reaping the benefits of the Fiesta Sport Special Edition’s great looks and excellent equipment levels.”

Following hot on the heels of the exciting Fiesta Sport + launched in February (called the 1600S in the UK and Sport S in Germany), the Sport Special Edition includes further enhancements inside and out. A full styling kit, complete with lowered side skirts and distinctive spoilers for the front bumper and rear hatch, emphasise the Fiesta’s cutting edge Kinetic Design, while additional attraction comes courtesy of a silver-coloured front grille surround, aerofoil, fog lamp bezels and polished twin exhausts. The new model will only be available as a three-door, further amplifying the sporty style.

Panther Black alloy wheels complete the Fiesta Sport Special Edition’s exterior upgrades, with 17-inch examples filling the sports arches on the petrol version and 16-inch alloy wheels for TDCi-equipped cars. Silver alloy wheels are also available as an option.

Ford Fiesta Sport Special Edition customers will have up to seven vibrant exterior paint options to choose from, including the Panther Black option used on the alloy wheels, and the black and silver contrast theme continues to the interior where Ebony Black heated leather sports seats with silver stitching provide a comfortable and supportive base from which to enjoy the performance and appreciate the identically upholstered steering wheel, complete with gloss black spokes.

Air conditioning with automatic temperature control as well as a leather handbrake and gear knob, alloy metal pedals, gloss black instrument bezels, bespoke floor mats and silver scuff plates are also present. The arrival of the Ford Fiesta Sport Special Edition also coincides with the launch of a DAB radio option for the Fiesta range, while the model will be equipped with a USB port for external media device connectivity and a six-speaker audio system adding tweeter speakers to the doors.

Available in most markets across Europe – including the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Netherlands and Switzerland – the Fiesta Sport Special Edition is the latest addition to the current Fiesta line-up, which has sold more than one million examples since going on sale in late 2008.

The Fiesta brand has been one of Ford’s greatest success stories, with 14 million sales in total. The current generation of Fiesta is produced at plants in Cologne, Germany, and Valencia, Spain

Posted via FF Mobile Because now Ford gave America, whos been complaing about getting a decontented model for years, the better Focus everyone else had an now everyones complaining that its too good, offers too many features as options you dont have to buy, and that it isnt exactly like the mki focus. So, why should Ford give us anything else the world has...we'll just complain about it.

we have to learn our lesson. forget ford and go to another brand. what happen to this "global everyone gets the same car stuff." if a RS ever comes out we wont get that either. who cares about an ST or a stupid PLATINUM edition focus. the real potent sports car is what we want. there isnt even a 3DR hatch focus as yet in the U.S. WTF. BOOOOO to all u ford exec. that keep doing this shatocky. go suck on a egg. eat doo doo for all i care. BIG HUMONGUS FAIL!!!!!!! not WINNING. ford bunch of losers.

^ Americans. Smh. Want it when they don't have it, then they get it and find reasons to complain.

When I become a billionaire I'm going to move to Europe just to have access to all these awesome cars.
