Ford has exclusively announced the introduction of a special performance edition of its European best-seller – the Ford Fiesta. Dubbed Ford Fiesta Sport +, the limited sports-inspired model is based upon the three-door Ford Fiesta and is powered by an improved 1.6-litre, Duratec Ti-VCT petrol plant that delivers 134 horsepower at 6,700 revolution, with 160 Nm torque at 4,250 rpm. Its maximum speed is 195 km/h, while the classic zero to 100 km/m acceleration sprint lasts 8.7 seconds.

Besides the sporty-tuned engine and the exclusivity of limited edition ride, the 2011 Ford Fiesta Sport + also showcases a comprehensive body-styling kit that features a sleek front bumper with flared lower valence panel, sporty side skirts, large rear spoiler and rear diffuser, finished with 17-inch, white alloy wheels.

Available in two special liveries - Frozen White or Performance Blue, with contrasting motorsport stripes, the fresh Fiesta further has athletic-flavored cabin, including heated, blue-stitched sports seats, standard side-airbags and leather steering wheel, handbrake cover and gear knob, plus Motorsport-branded floor mats and scuff plates.
