High performance Focus takes centre stage at Fleet News Drive

FORD will be bringing its latest edition to the Focus range, the ST170, powered by a 167bhp 2.0-litre engine, to the Fleet News ride and drives.

The car features a six-speed gearbox which together with the high performance engine, can take the car from 0-60mph in less than eight seconds and to a top speed of 134mph.

The Focus will be alongside its 'ST' stablemate, the Mondeo ST220.

The complete Ford line-up for the two events at Oulton Park on April 9-10 and Brands Hatch on April 30 and May 1 will be the ST170 Focus, ST220 Mondeo, Mondeo 2.5 Ghia, Focus TDCi Zetec, Fiesta TDCi Zetec, Fiesta 1.6 Ghia, Focus 2.o Ghia, Galaxy 2.3 LX and Maverick 3.0 litre.
