Ford working on Fiesta ST Turbo

Recent web reports have performance Ford fans buzzing with rumours of the 2011 Ford Fiesta ST Turbo being back on the cards. While Ford have confirmed nothing at this stage, speculation is rife. Those in the know believe that Ford will likely use its 1.6 litre turbocharged EcoBoost engine in the hot Fiesta that develops around 126 kW. Some of the more optimistic sources even believe the 2011 Ford Fiesta ST Turbo could receive a 2.0-litre turbo engine developing around 185kW, which would make it a very hot hatch. It seems most likely that power output will fall somewhere between these two figures.

Apparently spy photographers managed to catch the 2011 Ford Fiesta ST Turbo during testing and in the images the Fiesta ST Turbo will have a special rear diffuser and a two-pipe exhaust system. It will also be fitted with an intercooler and larger 17-inch rims.
