Ford recently revealed the new Fiesta ST200 and now it looks like the company is preparing a hotter version of the Focus ST.
New spy photos have emerged showing Ford testing a modified Focus ST on roads close to the Nurburgring. The current Focus ST makes 250 horsepower, while the top-dog Focus RS model makes 350, leaving a large gap where a hotter ST model would fit in.
Aerodynamics look improved on the car thanks to a new front spoiler and some added canards used on the front bumper. Some changes to the suspension are also a given, trying to refine the car further and help it to handle corners. Some new graphics and wheels would round out the package.
The car will likely end up making around 270 or 280 hp, which may lead Ford to name it the Focus ST270 or ST280.
