Ford has unveiled the Focus ST concept at a Paris Motor Show preview event.
Designed to foreshadow the production model, the concept features unique fascias, an integrated roof spoiler, a center-mounted dual exhaust system and 19-inch alloy wheels. Inside, the cabin boasts Recaro seats, a dash-mounted gauge cluster (for turbo boost, oil pressure and oil temperature), faux carbon fiber trim, and a sport steering wheel.
Power is provided by a 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine which has been outfitted with a redesigned intake and a recalibrated ECU. Thanks to these modifications, the mill produces 250 PS (184 kW / 247 hp) and 360 Nm (265 lb-ft) of torque.
To improve handling, engineers installed a sport suspension, a revised steering unit, beefier brakes, and Torque Vectoring Control.
According to Gunnar Herrmann, Ford's Global C-car Vehicle Line Director, "The ST represents an ultimate expression of Focus driving quality and performance and we are confident that the new model will strengthen the reputation of Ford's ST heritage among enthusiast drivers and attract new fans as well."
The production model will be unveiled in 2012 and it will be destined for "all global markets." Yes America, that means you!
