Ford has launched its Fiesta Sport Special Eidtion to the European market only. The large automaker will also mark the 35th anniversary of the Fiesta in Europe.
Even though Ford continues to follow through on their global "One Ford" business model, the automaker still launches new editions available for specific markets only. Such is the case of the new Fiesta Sport Special Edition. This new three-door hatch will basically contain all the same elements of the Fiesta 1600S and will only be available in Europe. The new hatchback will also mark the 35th anniversary of the Ford Fiesta in Europe.
Under the hood, the Ford Fiesta Sport Special Edition generates its power from a 1.6-liter Ti-VCT gasoline engine that produces an output of 132hp, 12hp more than its North American counterpart. The three-door hatchback will be able to go from 0-62 mph in 8.7 seconds and has a top speed of 122 mph. Not totally unsurprising, Ford will also offer a 93hp, 1.6-liter diesel four-cylinder version as well. Other features include a more aggressive front fascia, side skirts, sport exhaust system, rear diffuser and spoiler, silver-colored grille surround and the choice of either black or silver 17-inch alloy wheels.
There are a total of seven exterior paint options. The ebony black interior has the same features as the 1600S, such as the automatic climate control, black leather sport seats with silver stitching, leather handbrake and shift knob. Official pricing has not been announced.
