Geneva 2011: Ford Fiesta Sport+ [Live Photos]
The Fiesta Sport+, which is a limited edition model, is based on the three-door hatchback version of the car but gets some extra muscle in the engine compartment. The car is powered by a revised 1.6 liter, Duratec Ti-VCT petrol unit that allows the driver to play with 134 hp (peak power comes at 6,700 Nm) and 160 Nm of torque at 4,250 rpm.
The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) spring is dealt with in 8.7 seconds (1.2 seconds faster than the 120 hp 3-door variant), while top speed is rated at 195 km/h (121 mph).
The modifications are not limited to the engine bay, as the exterior has been dressed up with a dynamic-style body kit, including a fresh front apron, new side skirts, a generously-sized rear diffuser, as well as a rear spoiler. At the back, we spot a set of new twin-design tailpipe, while the car sticks to the road via a set of 17-inch lightweight alloy rims.
Inside, the driver is greeted by sport seats with blue stitching. Meanwhile, the leather steering wheel, handbrake handle and gear knob, side airbags and Motorsport-branded floor mats and scuff plates are all part of the standard equipment list.
The model is available in Germany, the UK, Austria, Switzerland and Belgium, at a base price of €18,090 ($24,440).
