Ford has confirmed it will unveil the new Focus ST at the Paris motor show later this month.

The car will feature a 247bhp version of the manufacturer's 2.0-litre Ecoboost petrol engine, and will go on sale globally from early 2012.

At Paris, Ford will show an early preview model of the ST that reveals the styling tweaks that differentiate the performance variant from the standard range.
