Ford has officially unveiled the Focus ST in Frankfurt, Germany.

Essentially a production version of the concept, the ST features an aerodynamic body kit, a lowered sports suspension and 18-inch alloy wheels with Goodyear Eagle F1 tires. It will be available as a five-door hatchback and wagon (in Europe).

Inside, the cabin has Recaro sport seats, aluminum pedals and metallic trim. Options include heated leather seats, dual-zone climate control and bi-xenon headlights.

Power comes from a 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine with 250 PS (184 kW / 247 hp) and 360 Nm (265 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed manual transmission which has been specially-designed to "produce the maximum punch from each throw of the gear shift." Other goodies include Torque Steer Compensation, Torque Vectoring Control and a three-mode Electronic Stability Program.

Ford also unveiled the track-only Focus ST-R. Designed for a variety of racing series - including the Grand-Am ST, World Challenge TC and Canadian Touring Car Series - the model has a race-tuned suspension, upgraded brakes, a stripped out interior and a FIA-compliant rollcage.
