2013 Ford Fiesta ST Live Photos: 2012 Geneva Motor Show

Follow Antony

Geneva marked the debut of the hottest car in Ford's Fiesta range, the sporty ST model.

Based on the three-door Fiesta on sale in Europe, the Fiesta gains a 177-horsepower EcoBoost four-cylinder, and aggressive styling influenced by the upcoming Focus ST.

Ford has honed the chassis on the world-famous Nürburgring Nordschleife in Germany, and the car now sits 15mm lower than its regular counterparts, with stiffer chassis settings to tackle the turns.

Torque vectoring control keeps the front wheels in check on your way to 60 mph in under 7 seconds, and top speed is "over 136 mph".

The styling is certainly eye-catching, as you can see from the images. Inside, figure-hugging Recaro bucket seats keep you in place, and the bright exterior color scheme is repeated on the seat faces.

The 2013 Ford Fiesta ST hasn't yet been confirmed for U.S. sale, but there was plenty of interest for the Fiesta ST five-door concept at last year's Los Angeles Auto Show--so start bugging your local Ford dealer.
