Default Ford Releases Hotter Fiesta S1600



Quote:
The Fiesta S1600 has stepped up a gear! Ford offered the S1600 special as a limited run of 650 cars some time ago. These were based on the Fiesta Zetec S, but as our review showed, were more style over substance.


Still, Ford sold of the examples it made, and now the S1600 is back, but with a boost in power to match the beefed-up looks.


Just 500 examples will be made this time, once again based on the Zetec S. Power of the 1.6-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine is up from 118bhp to 132bhp, which helps drop the 0-62mph to 8.2 seconds Ė a 1.7 second improvement over the standard model.


Once again, the Fiesta S1600 features a body styling kit that includes a deeper front bumper, extended side skirts, rear spoiler and diffuser; and 17-inch white alloys. Two colours are available - Frozen White or Performance Blue - with contrasting motorsport stripes.


Interior tweaks include heated leather sports seats, a leather steering wheel, handbrake cover and gear-knob, plus motorsport-branded floor mats and scuff plates.


The Fiesta S1600 is available now, priced at £15,895 - £1,500 more than the standard Zetec S and a useful £650 cheaper than the previous S1600 special. This should be enough to tide fast Ford fans over until the turbocharged 1.6-litre Fiesta ST arrives later in the year.

Who's going to be dumb enough to buy this, knowing the ST is coming in a few months?

Big deal, like this car we'll never get a proper ST.
