The one-off Ford Focus ST Police Demonstrator is perfect for catching crafty crooks.
The one-off Ford Focus ST Police Demonstrator is perfect for catching crafty crooks. Why? Because Ford Special Vehicle Preparations has obtained – from legitimate sources officer - various special features. Highlights include the mobile data terminal that has been fully integrated into the dashboard. Among other things this helps law enforcers identify stolen, uninsured, and untaxed vehicles. This complements LED roof lights and the vibrant livery. The Police Demonstrator also has shelving in its boot for painful pepper spray, hard helmets, and delicious doughnuts. Like every Focus Estate its cargo capacity is a pleasing 476-litres without shelving. This increases to 1,502-litres when the rear bench is folded flat.The Ford Focus ST Police Demonstrator has other virtues to make officers smile. First and foremost, it has a 2.0-litre 250PS petrol engine. This propels coppers to 62mph in a super- speedy 6.5 seconds and onto 154mph. No crook can escape, then. Once apprehended, guests of Her Majesty benefit from the Focus' comfortable ride, sure-footed handling, and generous equipment specification. Highlights include the active city stop which can brake automatically to avoid collisions, the electronic stability programme that enables officers to define its influence, and blind spot monitoring. This informs the driver, via orange lights in the wing mirrors, when vehicles are in the blind spots. Good, crooks cannot sneak-up then. The Ford Focus Estate ST is also available in non-Police specification for £23,095 to £26,240. The Hatchback trim costs £21,995 to £25,495. Funds must be obtained “legally”.
