Benefiting from technology and quality improvements revealed earlier this year for the new Ford Focus, Focus ST will be displayed on the Ford stand at Goodwood. First launched in 2002, Focus ST has now seen sales of more than 140,000 units in more than 40 countries.

Ford also is teaming up with Sony Computer Entertainment to stage the first-ever "virtual versus real" race on the hill. On its first run each day, the new Focus ST will compete in real time against the Focus ST featured in the Gran Turismo®6 game for PlayStation®3.

Own a Piece of History: Tanner Foust FocusST for Sale

Jun 20, 2014 - 2:04 PM - by NickJ

Something like this doesn't happen but once in a great while. The Foust Edition Focus ST that was built specifically for SEMA is now up for sale. Most show cars get put away into a museum or just flat out crushed. Sad I know. BeyondMG posted this beauty for sale just the other day in our Cars for Sale Section. At first we couldn't believe our eyes and had to check and then double check to make sure that it was legit. Lo and behold... It is!

This is Tanner Foust Edition No. 001 by COBB as denoted by the plate in the center console just above the shifter. To my knowledge this is the ONLY one to have ever been completed, and has been under the close and watchful eye of Cobb in SoCal ever since it was taken off the show scene. This was the Special Edition that was destined for the cutting room floor, so it is a truly one-off machine that will likely become a collector's item for FoMoCo guys. Don't miss this opportunity to own this very special piece of automotive history!

Full details are in the Sales Thread here: 2013 Focus ST Tanner Foust Edition For Sale

2016 Ford Focus RS spotted in the US

Jun 17, 2014 - 11:57 AM - by STdan

One of AutoBlog's intrepid spy photographers has captured a vehicle that we weren't even sure would see the light of day – the next Focus RS. While this is pretty clearly a mule based on the current Focus ST, as our spy points out, there are a number of giveaways about this hot hatch's true nature. Indication number one that all is not right with this Focus is the heavily camo'd front fascia, which has been completely reconfigured for duty on the RS. It boasts significantly larger grilles that are meant to accommodate what is likely the 2.3-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder that's destined for the 2015 Ford Mustang. Considering that, then, we can expect around 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque from the hottest of Foci, although it's entirely possible that the production model could climb even higher, to around 330 hp.

ST Octane Academy: Ultimate owner driving experience

Take a compact car, add a meaty engine, and you’ve got a recipe for success, and Ford is aiming to show drivers just how fun its high-performance small cars can be. Held at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, the ST Octane Academy puts new Focus ST and Fiesta ST owners on the track with racing instructors to make sure they’re getting the best out of their cars. Ford invited me along to try my hand at the wheel.

There’s an art for squeezing the fastest lap times and the most fun out of a fast - but not supercar fast - car. In a supercar you almost certainly fall short of nudging its limits (my time behind the wheel of the Lamborghini Aventador was evidence of that) and can generally count on electronics and power to get you out of most situations.

Supercars are fun, but small, powerful cars can be even more fun. For a start, you can’t count solely on power to cover up patchy driver skills. You can feel more connected to the engine and the suspension, because you can’t generally count on them to rescue you, only to work with you.


That collaboration between car and driver is what the ST Octane Academy aims to teach. Inspired by TV show Octane Academy, it’s staffed by four professional drivers with a fleet of ten Fiesta ST and ten Focus ST cars, with a packed day of driving classes, ride-alongs, hot-laps, and a custom circuit.

The cars aren’t quite the same as you might drive off the forecourt, however. Most noticeably, they’ve been fitted with roll cages... [Read More]
