Ford has announced Red and Black Editions of the Fiesta which come with a more powerful iteration of the 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine.

Ford’s award-winning 3-cylinder 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine lineup has gained a new member today in the form of a powerful 140 PS (103 kW) flavour, following the footsteps of the 100 PS (74 kW) and 125 PS (92 kW) versions. The Blue Oval company says it provides more power-per-liter than a Bugatti Veyron and Ferrari 458 Speciale and grants the Fiesta with a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 9 seconds before topping out at 125 mph (201 km/h).

Fitted with this engine, the Fiesta is capable of returning 52.3 mpg US (62.8 mpg UK or 4.5 liters / 100 km) with corresponding CO2 emissions of 104 g/km. These Red and Black Editions also feature a stiffer and sportier suspension setup as well as new gear ratios for the five-speed manual gearbox and a tweaked electronic power assisted steering system.

Painted in Race Red or Panther Black, the models can be visually distinguished by their sporty front and rear bumpers, standard Panther Black 16-inch alloys or optional 17-inch, different side skirts and a roof-mounted spoiler. These also have bespoke front upper and lower grille surrounds, front bumper aerofoil and mirror caps in contrasting color, along with glossy black center stack and door handles, contrasting red stitching and a black leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear lever gaiter.

Already available on order, the Ford Fiesta Red and Black Editions will reach dealerships in September.
