On sale this month, the all new Ford Focus ST takes centre stage this month with a starring role in new film blockbuster ‘The Sweeney’. The Sweeney director and co-writer Nick Love, whose prior credits include The Football Factory and The Firm, said "it was important for me to collaborate with Ford on The Sweeney as their legacy with the original TV show is so strong, they're the perfect partner. I like the Ford Focus ST so much, I want one!"

Anthony Ireson, Ford Britain marketing director, said “the new Focus ST is a hugely exciting car for Ford with terrific dynamic credibility. It will be a car for real driving enthusiasts, so Regan and Carter won't be disappointed.” Flying Squad detectives Jack Regan (Ray Winstone) and George Carter (Ben Drew aka Plan B) lead a cast of crime-busting officers as they give chase to London's criminals in black Ford Focus ST hot hatchbacks.

The new Ford Focus ST five door is priced from £21,995, with a stylish estate body style debuting at £23,095. By the end of August, Ford dealers had taken over 450 orders for the Blue Oval’s latest performance car prior to it reaching their showrooms this month.
