WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE ST MODEL?
“It’s a tough choice. The best car in terms of build quality and all-round package is without a doubt the Mk4 Focus. But the comfiest car I’ve ever been in was my old ST220. The Mk6 Fiesta ST we had as a project was one of the most fun Fords I’ve ever driven, and then there are the fantastic Mk7 and Mk8 Fiestas! My favourite? I dunno, all of ‘em!” JAMIE, EDITOR
“I’ve never owned an ST, but I have owned an ST170 engine! With this fitted to my old Mk4 Escort estate and mated to a set of Weber Alpha ITBs, the combination was unreal. Addictive sound, plus power that saw me receiving a pretty serious speeding charge!” ADE, PHOTOGRAPHER
“I’d have to say the new Mk4 Focus ST outweighs the competition in terms of handling and performance. Plus, if you don’t go for the bright orange, it’s super stealthy” JASON, PHOTOGRAPHER
“I’ve owned or driven most ST models, and the best - without a doubt - is my ST250 estate. But it has to be my particular ST, because the remap, suspension and brakes are what make it so good. That said, I’m open to having my mind changed by a press-spec Mk4 ST wagon with Performance Pack and pano roof.” DAN WILLIAMSON, SUB-EDITOR & TECH WRITER
“It’s probably an obvious answer, but I’m going to have to say the Mk7 Fiesta ST. Undoubtedly one of the greatest hot hatches of all time, and they’re just so tuneable; the things Fast Ford readers have done with these cars are just incredible. A future classic, for sure.” DAN BEVIS, WRITER
