Ford has announced plans to begin accepting orders for the 2013 Focus ST in the United States.
Priced from $24,495, the model features an aggressive body kit, a sport-tuned suspension and 18-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the cabin is nicely equipped with sport seats, aluminum pedals, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and the SYNC connectivity system. Options include HID headlights, a premium audio system and Recaro sport seats.
Power comes from a 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine that produces 252 hp (188 kW / 255 PS) and 270 lb-ft (366 Nm) of torque.
As a bonus, the first 1,000 customers who pre-order the model will be given a free GoPro HD Hero2 Motorsports Edition camera after they take delivery.
