WHYTHE FUSS Another pocket rocket from the blue oval WHEN’S IT HERE? Late 2012 HOWMUCH? About $25,000 THE Ford Fiesta is a beaut little baby that also comes with an Econetic green tick in Australia. However, in future it will have a go-fast option to take on the Volkswagen Polo GTI. Work is well advanced on the ST, with a 1.6-litre 130kW EcoBoost turbo petrol engine. It will be ready for Europe late this year and Australia in 2012. Regular Fiestas sold in Australia are built in Thailand but the hot ST is likely to be built in Europe.
