The paint finish is incredible and virtually flawless owing to fastidious mature ownership and strict garaged storage. The racy exterior sports body-styling and trim sections and badges are as new. Originality seekers will be pleased to see factory stickers and labels in the door shuts as well as the Ford dealer number plates. The underside and wheel apertures are super clean and original. A prime example of a cosseted and unspoilt Focus ST170.
Inside this sporting fast Ford are a pair of body-hugging partial leather sports front seats in Blue Waffle in Midnight combination, (Code AL), all in immaculate order. The entire cabin space, seats and trim can only be described as exceptional and it is very obvious that this is a very well cared for example. All functions and controls operate including the air conditioning and model 6006N stereo radio/6CD. Tailored floor mats have preserved the pristine carpet. An unmolested hot hatch Ford interior.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Fitted with the Ford 2.0 litre Duratec engine, the power output is, as per the ST170 namesake, quoted as 170bhp at 7000rpm and 196Nm torque at 5500rpm. The maximum speed is 134mph while 0-60 is dispatched in just 8.2 seconds. The engine bay is spotless and displays factory labels, panels stamps and clear chassis number stamping as well as the often-perished parts component and headlamp stickers. The standard Durashift 6-speed manual transmission is wonderfully tight and precise, perfect for quick and enthusiastic changes!
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Unique 15 spoke ST design 17” alloy wheels are immaculate thanks to a light refurbishment with no curb damage and all Ford badged centre caps are as new. Matching premium Continental ContiSportContact tyres of size 215/45 R17 have masses of tread, two of which were fitted brand new in February 2020. The original space saver spare wheel is unused with coloured banding still within the tread and is housed in the pristine boot floor. The factory jack and wheel brace are present. Anti-lock brakes (ABS) with discs to all four wheels offer rapid stopping power for this performance hot hatch.
