The latest sporty Fiesta is available with two engine options, the most potent of which is the 1.6-liter Duratec Ti-VCT petrol unit delivering 134-horses and 160Nm torque at 4,250rpm.
Combined with a close-ratio gearing and a redeveloped exhaust system, the Fiesta Sport Special Edition with the petrol engine completes the 0-100km/h (0-62mph) acceleration in 8.7 seconds and has a top speed of 195km/h (122mph).
The other option is a less powerful but more frugal 1.6-liter turbo diesel producing 95-horses that returns 107g of CO2 and a combined fuel economy of 4.1lt/100km (57.4mpg US or 68.9 mpg UK).
The Sport Special edition is available exclusively as a three door model with buyers having a choice of seven exterior colors including a flat black finish.
A styling kit complete with lowered side skirts and spoilers for the front bumper and rear hatch as well as silver-colored front grille surround, aerofoil, fog lamp bezels and polished twin exhausts come as standard.
The exterior upgrades also include Panther Black 17-inch alloy wheels on the petrol model and 16-inch on the diesel, while silver alloy wheels are also available as an option.
Inside, the sporty Fiesta features Ebony Black heated leather sports seats with silver stitching and an identically upholstered steering wheel with gloss black spokes.
Standard features include air conditioning with automatic temperature control as well as a leather handbrake and gear knob, alloy metal pedals, gloss black instrument bezels, bespoke floor mats and silver scuff plates.
The Fiesta Sport Special Edition is available in most markets across the continent, including the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Netherlands and Switzerland.
