Here's Ford's press release about the new 05 models. The ST will be available here, whenever they release the 05 models. It is somewhat less powerful than the SVT but still sounds like a good package overall.

Ahhh, if you mean that silver beauty, then no. That ST is the current European version of the American SVT Focus. The ST that will be introduced here appears that it will only be available (at first, at least) as a sedan - which they're now calling a ZX4, apparently.

Yeah, they have two models. ST170 which is like our SVT and a ST130 which is like a fully loaded ZX3.

Careful there, one word changes everything. I said THAT ST, referring to the silver one found on the home page. The ST that will go for sale *here* will be completely different. But the Euro ST that's on the home page is, as far as I know, almost exactly the same as an SVT.

Reading the spec for your soon to be "New" ST, it does not appear to be as good a spec as my own. It is available in Europe & Australia only to my knowledge.

Mine started life the same as the picture on the homepage (but RHD). If you want to see the full official spec sheet for my car as built click the link!!
Link to Ford Spec Sheet (PDF File)

Since then I have done the following changes:-

“Lexus Style B” Rear Light Clusters with Silvertec Indicator Bulbs
Smoked Side Repeaters with Silvertec Side Repeater Bulbs
Cobalt Blue Front Fog/Spotlight Bulbs
LHD Reverse Light with True Colour Red Bulb
Chrome Tailgate Grab Handle
Bonnet Lifters (from Redline Tuning)
Various Under Bonnet “Shineys” (from Mirage Stainless)
Custom “Focus” Name Badges
Brake Callipers & Discs in Burgundy Hammerite (Smooth)
Morette Twin Headlights with 30% Xenon Bulbs & Silvertec Indicators
“Cosworth” Design Rear Spoiler
K&N Panel Filter
Peugeot 406 Rear Wiper Arm
Green Silicone Hoses (from Indico(Europe) Hoses)
SVT Focus Badges

If anyone is interested I'll post some pictures up at a later time so you can see what they really look like.
