The hotted-up limited edition Ford Fiesta that is known as the Sport+ in Europe, goes on sale in UK as the S1600. It is limited to 500 units for the entire country, priced from £15,895.
Ford Fiesta S1600 is based on the popular three-door 120PS Ford Fiesta Zetec-S, but that 1.6-litre, Duratec Ti-VCT petrol engine is tweaked to deliver 134PS at 6,700rpm and 160Nm of torque at 4,250rpm. That means it can now reach 60mph in just 8.2sec.
Fiesta S1600 also features a body kit that sets it apart from the rest of the range with a unique front bumper with flared lower valence panel, extended side skirts, large rear spoiler and rear diffuser, and with 17in white alloy wheels. Frozen White or Performance Blue liveries are available, with contrasting motorsport stripes.
The sporty interior of the car offers features like heated, stitched leather sports seats with standard side-airbags, leather steering wheel, handbrake cover and gear-knob, plus motorsport-branded floor mats and scuff plates.

Andrew Paton, Ford of Britain’s Fiesta product manager, said: “The sportier character of these limited-edition Fiesta S1600 models will appeal to all driving enthusiasts. The previous S1600 was rapidly sold out which shows how much fun these affordable new Fiesta models are – and now with more power and performance these latest versions are set to be an even greater hit.”
