The ST is the hottest version of the current model Ford Focus offered to date. It won't ultimately be the most powerful -- a fire-breathing, rear-wheel drive RS will follow, but not until 2014. So, for now, this front-wheel drive racer is the 'performance Ford'.
In a break from tradition, this ST won't be offered as a three-door: only practical five-door and estate models are on sale. Under the bonnet, a turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-litre engine replaces the previous car's five-cylinder 2.5, but it's been tweaked by Ford to offer more horsepower and torque (pulling power) than before.
With 247bhp and 265lb ft of torque it's capable of hitting 62mph from rest in 6.8 seconds. That's not quite the six seconds flat of a Vauxhall Astra VXR, but the Ford's power delivery is smoother, making it more useable and enjoyable.

same engines, gearboxes, suspension, brakes and many other components. Can
it beat its sister VW at its own game? Which? was on the launch in Spain to

Chemical Guys Tech Talk shows you the professional way to restore plastic
headlights back to the original crystal clear appearance. Chemical Guys
will show you how to wet sand the headlights and prepare for the polishing
process. Wet Sanding is performed with Chemical Guys Sanding block and
extra fine sand paper.
Next, the headlights are polished using V34, V36, and V38 optical polishes
using the orange, green, and black Hexlogic polishing pads. The Flex PE-14
Rotary Polisher teamed with the Evolve 4R mini backing plate has the
polishing power to remove the sanding scratches and restore the crystal
clear appearance to the headlight.
To protect the headlight from feature fading from sun damage, we use a coat
of JetSeal which is formulated specifically to protect the headlight
against harmful UV Rays.
Keep your car or truck looking great with Chemical Guys!!!
