Frankfurt Motor Show: Ford Focus ST

Mark Nichol

In the same way the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton happened before Zara Phillips got married to that rugby player, the Focus ST is the warm-up for a much bigger event. That event being the Focus RS.

Never mind, because the freshly unveiled Focus ST isn't too shabby a stopgap. Ford is calling it the company's 'first global performance car', even though ST Wagon (the estate to you and I) will only be sold in Europe.
