Ford of Europe is launching a more powerful iteration of the Fiesta ST in Geneva where the Blue Oval company is displaying the ST200 model.

The closest thing to a full-blown RS this generation Fiesta will ever get, the ST200 for Europe is labeled as the “most powerful production Fiesta ever.” It gets the familiar turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine from the EcoBoost family which in this new application delivers 200 PS (197 hp / 147 kW) and 214 lb-ft (290 Nm) of torque.

There’s also a temporary overboost function which will give the hot supermini an extra 15 PS (11 kW) and 22 lb-ft (30 Nm) for up to 20 seconds, thus improving performance even further.

Thanks to the extra punch, the Fiesta ST200 will run the 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) sprint in 6.7 seconds, thus making it 0.2 seconds quicker than the regular ST model. Top speed has also increased a little bit, from 137 mph (220 kph) to a very respectable 143 mph (230 kph.)

Aside from packing more muscle, the hottest Fiesta ever also gets a bespoke Storm Grey paint, matte black 17-inch alloy wheels, and red brake calipers. On the inside it benefits from illuminated sill plates, partial leather Recaro front seats, silver contrast stitching, and unique seat belts with silver detailing.

Production of the Ford Fiesta ST200 is planned to begin in June and deliveries will kick off shortly thereafter.
