Collins Performance has given the Fiesta ST 270bhp and 265lb ft, but has our favourite fast Ford been ruined in the process?

by Rory White, 26 March 2015

What is it?:

It's a chance for fans of the superb Ford Fiesta ST either to wince and shake their heads or sit up straight and take notice, depending on how they like their hot hatches.
We did the latter when Mountune announced it was hiking the ST's power from 180bhp to 212bhp back in 2013, and the results were good. For 2015, Collins Performance has somewhat raised the bar. You see, its ST, in this state, produces 270bhp and 265lb ft.

This actually represents the third and final tier of CP's ST upgrade packages. A new Mongoose exhaust, Airtec intercooler, ITG induction system, CPE turbocharger and revised ECU mapping are your rewards for choosing to laugh in the face of tiers one and two.

The cost for going this big? A full £2965, including fitting and a discount if you let CP keep your old turbo. Our car was also fitted with the firm's Dynamic Chassis upgrade, which swaps the ST's standard front wishbone and rear beam bushes for stiffer ones, and costs a further £440.

This sort of power from a 1.6 petrol is nothing new - see Peugeot's RCZ R - but that's a car that relies heavily on its limited-slip differential. So how does a similarly potent but slippy diff-less Fiesta ST get on?

What's it like?:

Noticeably more aggressive from the moment you press the Collins Performance-branded starter button and fire it into life. Our car's burbling single-box exhaust can be swapped for a quieter twin-box item for no extra cost, but if standing out is your thing, we'd keep things as they are here.

Pulling away reveals two things. Firstly, CP hasn't messed with the gearbox, which is a very good thing: it's as slick and positive as ever. Secondly, and less appealing, is the amount of vibration sent through the cabin by the exhaust as the car

SPIED: 2017 Ford Fiesta RS

Whatís this? Well, itís a dusty, sort of cobbled-together-looking Ford Fiesta hatchback. But look more closely. See that altered front bodywork with the giant air inlets? The tacked-on fender flares? The apparent intercooler peering out from behind the grille? This, friends, is no ordinary Fiestaóitís almost assuredly a test mule for a hot-rodded Fiesta RS that Ford could be cooking up for 2017.

Fordís RS game is strong recently, what with the 2017 Focus RS bringing its all-wheel drive and 300-plus turbocharged horsepower to the U.S. and the rest of the world. And when Ford unveiled the slightly larger Focus RS, the company hinted that the RS nameplate would become a long-term performance-oriented sub-brand. A fire-breathing Fiesta would sure fit nicely with that notion.

Our spyís sleuthy photos of this Fiesta test mule seem to support that assumption. Running around in a convoy that included two camouflaged Focus RS prototypes, the wee Fiesta appears to have a wide-mouthed (and likely temporary) grille echoing the big air inlets of the bigger Focus RS behind it. It has also sprouted tacked-on fender flares and some temporary rear bodywork, both of which were seen on Focus RS prototypes when they were in the early test-mule stages.

If this is indeed a Fiesta RS, we suspect from previous conversations that it will feature an uprated version of the 197-hp 1.6-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder already seen in the current Fiesta ST, perhaps tuned to make north of 230 horses. We also expect a widened track, a thoroughly reworked suspension, a limited-slip differential, and perhaps some weight savings, along with... [Read More]

Ford Fiesta RS Speculatively Rendered

Ford Fiesta RS Speculatively Rendered-ford-fiesta-rs-.jpg
Ford Fiesta RS Speculatively Rendered-2.jpg

by Mihnea Radu, 12th February 2015

The Ford Fiesta RS is like a rumor that refuses to die. It was around back in 2007 when the ST used a 150 hp 2-liter engine and it's back in 2015, with a turbo twist.

The boss of Ford's go-fast division recently told Autocar magazine that a hotter Fiesta is on its way, without cornfirming or denying that it's an RS model.

Of course, this was blown completely out of proportion and soon after that, Auto Express wrote that it's learned the Fiesta RS will be launched soon and it will have all-wheel drive. Considering the limitations of the platform, that's a huge stretch of the imagination.

However, if fans start dreaming, building Facebook comunities and petitioning, it might actually happen. And what better way to light the fire of creativity than with an awesome rendering, like the one recently made by X-Tomi Design. He grafted the aggressive front end design of the Focus RS onto the little Fiesta, added larger wheels, a spoiler and twin exhaust.

To compete with the best superminis in the world, the Fiesta RS would need a 2-liter turbo engine with around 230 horsepower. Both the Audi S1 and the MINI JCW pack that much.

But we think the single... [Read More]

Ford Fiesta RS with 250 horsepower mooted

Jan 31, 2015 - 6:05 AM - by ST2Focus
We know Ford is unveiling a new Focus RS on February 3, and it's heavily rumored to arrive brandishing an all-wheel-drive powertrain and as much as 350 horsepower. The folks at Ford Performance have also promised they are working on at least 12 models through 2020, and that still leaves a lot of time to get additional exciting vehicles out the door. One of those could be an RS version of the Fiesta, according to Evo.

An RS take on the latest Fiesta would obviously need substantial boosts in both power and handling ability to warrant the work over the current top Fiesta ST (pictured above), which is already one of our favorite cars. Evo speculates that the 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder could be tuned further, possibly up to about 250 horsepower, and the high-performance hatch might even take some inspiration from the Fiesta WRC rally car with an all-wheel drive system.

An unnamed Ford spokesperson remained cagey about the chances for the pint-sized hot hatch to Evo, though. "We can't say anything at this moment, but we have promised to produce 12 performance models in the coming years. We'll leave it for you to decide whether that includes a Fiesta at this moment," the source said to the magazine.

Evo doesn't expect a launch across the pond until at least 2017, if it actually happens. Of course, there's the lingering question of whether such a niche project would work in the US. In Europe, the Fiesta RS would challenge similarly diminutive speedsters like the Volkswagen Polo R and Audi S1, but true... [Read More]
