Ford Performance is the dedicated area within Ford Motor Company which focuses entirely on developing performance products ranging from enhancements and upgrades to current models to conceiving and constructing brand new ones. All next generation sports cars from Ford are developed by Ford Performance including the all new Ford Mustang, the all new Ford Focus RS and the Ford GT supercar.
At long last the Ford Mustang has been brought to Europe and is available to buy from Hastings Ford Store. As possibly the most recogniseable "muscle" car in the world, the new Ford Mustang brings updated styling to the familiar design with modern technology being incorporated such as a limited slip differential making the new Mustang competitive in the world of performance cars. The Mustang is available with an EcoBoost engine but also with a 5-litre V8 producing over 400bhp which is remarkable given prices start below £30,000. Being value for money should not make you think any less of the new Mustang as the power, engineering and sound create an overwhelming experience for driver and passenger alike.
With only 250 models being produced, the all new Ford GT is set to be very exclusive with a huge amount of demand already being seen. The new Ford GT follows the familiar appearance of previous Ford GT supercars, with the low ride height and sleek shape combined with the iconic engine inlets. What really adds flare to the new GT is the addition of the signature GT badge in a variety of places such as the rear light casings and front bonnet scoops, which simply adds another layer of detail to an already stunning vehicle. The new Ford GT is powered by an V6 EcoBoost engine developing over 600bhp making this the most powerful vehicle in the Ford new car range. Production is set for 2016 and Ford has already begun showing prototype models at large events like the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
With over 300bhp on offer and the cutting edge all wheel drive system,
the new Ford Focus RS provides a thrilling driving experience, enhanced
beyond previous iterations with an all wheel drive system which has
never before been seen on a Ford RS model.
With familiar looks and styling as the Focus, the RS model means additional body styling, with extended bodykit, side skirts and spoiler for improved down force and handling. Large alloy wheels provide extra handling abilities whilst increasing the sporty appearance. Inside you'll find racing seats as standard along with the latest cutting edge technology associated with Ford.
Boost your RS further with a Mountune Upgrade. Fitting available at Birchwood Ford from £899 (excl. fitting cost).
Recently receiving a refreshed design along with up to date technology, the Ford Focus ST has been a popular choice for driving enthusiasts for many years, offering exceptional high performance features in conjunction with comfort, practicality and safety.
The Focus ST retains the family resemblance but like the RS, the ST has enhanced bodywork giving a more aggressive look as part of the sports theme. Inside, the latest technology such as SYNC2 adds to the convenience and versatility of the Focus ST, allowing for seamless integration with your smart device.
Never before has a hot hatch received such universal reviews, prompting
glowing feedback from sources ranging from celebrities such as Chris
Evans to industry journalists like Auto Express. The Ford Fiesta ST
utilises exceptional good looks and styling combined with agility and a
nimble driving profile to deliver a hugely enthusastic and exciting
driving experience. The exterior bodykit and spoiler enhances the
sports profile of the car along with the large low profile alloy wheels.
Inside Recaro racing seats are equipped as standard along with a
variety of sports styling and chrome finishings. The Ford Fiesta ST is
pure fun from start to finish.
Ford have since annouced that a 5-door version of the Fiesta ST will be in production, and is due to be available to order in late 2016.
With the 2017 launch of the All-New Fiesta comes the Fiesta ST-Line, which joins the expanding ST-Line range, including the Mondeo, Focus, Kuga and Edge. The new range is inspired by Ford Performance vehicles and despite not categorised as Ford Performance vehicles, you'll still experience the bold styling, sporty driving dynamics at great value.
