The company also confirmed the model will be offered with a diesel engine for the first time. Nothing is official but previous reports have suggested the it will use a 2.0-liter TDCi engine that develops 184 PS (135 kW).

The Focus ST will celebrates its dynamic debut at the event and Ford has teamed up with Sony to stage a “virtual vs real” in Gran Turismo 6. According to Ford, " a designated gamer at the Ford stand will match skills against Ben Collins – formerly “The Stig” from Top Gear – with the action displayed on big screens throughout the festival. Visitors to the Ford stand also have the chance to record their own times on the Gran Turismo 6 simulators."
