Ford will unveil a new more popular Ford Focus ST at the Paris motor show later this month.
Powered by a 247bhp 2.0-litre Ecoboost engine, the performance version of the all-new Ford Focus will be on sale in the UK late 2011 or early 2012.
The car features daytime running LED lights and a large rear spoiler. Overall, it's less subtle than the ST it replaces. Take the new paint job, for example – Ford calls it 'Tangerine Scream'.
Performance details have yet to be released, but it should prove faster than the existing 221bhp car, which sprints from 0-62mph in 6.8 seconds.
Close inspection of the interior photos reveals a six-speed manual gearshift and auto stop-start function.
