Ford have unveiled the most powerful volume production 1.0litre road car ever, the Fiesta Zetec S Red / Black Edition.
Priced from £15,995, the special edition three-door vehicles debut the new 140PS version of Ford’s 1.0litre EcoBoost engine – offering more power-per-litre than a Bugatti Veyron.
The Fiesta Red and Black Editions achieve 0-62mph in 9.0seconds and a 125mph top speed, alongside 62.8mpg fuel efficiency and 104g/km CO2 emissions.
They are available order now before hitting dealerships in September.
Roeland de Waard, European Marketing, Sales and Service Vice President at Ford, said: “These two new Fiestas make an unquestionably bold statement on the road and will give drivers an equally distinctive experience behind the wheel with a sportier version of our 1.0llitre EcoBoost and enhancements to the Fiesta’s acclaimed ride and handling.”
The Fiestas sport front upper and lower grille surrounds, front bumper aerofoil and mirror caps in contrasting colours, with standard black 17inch alloy wheels.
Its body kit offers front and rear sports bumpers, side skirts and rear roof spoiler, with the contrasting colour roof on both models painted.
The models feature black leather sports steering wheel and gear lever gaiter with red stitching, black floor mats with red stitching, and charcoal black sport seats with contrasting red stitching and bolster exteriors.
Driving appeal is further enhanced with revised gear ratios for the five-speed manual transmission and a sport suspension set-up.
In addition to new shock absorber and spring settings, the sport suspension uses a stiffer rear axle and revised tuning for the Electronic Power Assisted Steering system delivering greater torque build-up.
