Two new Ford Fiesta’s with head turning looks
Fiesta Zetec S Red / Black Editions
Ford have revealed new two tone Fiesta Zetec S Red and Black Edition models priced from £15,995. The new cars combine head turning looks, unexpected performance and excellent fuel efficiency.
The two new models will be the most powerful 1.0 litre volume production cars ever. The new 140PS version of the 1.0-litre EcoBoost offers more power per litre than the Bugatti Veyron and the Ferrari 458 Speciale. The Fiesta Red and Black Editions achieve 0-62 mph in just nine seconds and go on to a top speed of 125mph. Fuel efficiency is approximately 62.8mpg with 104g CO2/km emissions
Both models are available to order now and will be in dealerships from September. The Fiesta Zetec S Red / Black Editions are inspired by global fashion trends for strong colour contrasts, the two-tone models are available in Race Red, complemented by Panther Black roof and detailing; and Panther Black, with Race Red roof and detailing. Roelant de Waard, Ford’s European Marketing, Sales and Service vice president said “these two new Fiestas make an unquestionably bold statement on the road and will give drivers an equally distinctive experience behind the wheel with a sportier version of our 1.0-litre EcoBoost and enhancements to the Fiesta’s acclaimed ride and handling.”
The exterior of the three-door models feature front upper and lower grille surrounds, front bumper aerofoil and mirror caps in contrasting colours, with standard black 17-inch alloy wheels. The body kit offers front and rear sports bumpers, side skirts and rear roof spoiler; and the contrasting colour roof on both models has been painted to achieve a consistent and higher quality gloss finish than can be achieved using a foil applique or sticker.
The interior of both cars feature black leather sports steering wheel and gear lever gaiter with red stitching; black floor mats with red stitching; and charcoal black sport seats with contrasting red stitching and bolster exteriors. John Mcleod, Ford’s European Vehicle Personalisation chief designer said “both cars have an execution that’s bold, distinctive and contemporary, but the Red and Black present subtly different personalities that will appeal to different customers. The more provocative car is the Black Edition, its red detailing and the grille surround deliver a high contrast for drivers that want to be noticed. The Red Edition car is highly expressive yet a little bit more subtle for the less exuberant owner.”
