FORD have started production of the new Fiesta ST - the first production Fiesta to record a 0-62mph acceleration time of under seven seconds - at their assembly plant in Cologne, Germany.

Developed by Ford Team RS, the new Fiesta ST is powered by a 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engine to achieve 0-62mph in 6.9 seconds, and offer 182ps and a 136.7mph top speed.

The car's fuel consumption figure is 48mpg and CO2 emissions are 138g/km.

Chief programme engineer Juergen Gagstatter said: "The new Fiesta ST is a very modern performance car built on top of more than 30 years of fast Fiestas and a global development process.

"This vehicle is a significant step forward, both in terms of our proud heritage of blending a powerful engine with a dynamic chassis and also in achieving reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions."
