A fun phone with three cylinders? At first glance, the eighth generation Ford Fiesta ST looks like it has been abandoned. But a small engine with a displacement of 1.5 liters has 200 hp and 300 Nm. And how! He got up with glee, pushed hard, growled like a big one and set the real alarm above. Add to that the sharp steering and lightweight rear end and you have a first-class fun vehicle.
Such a car is currently being offered for sale on eBay. This is the blue Fiesta ST 1.5 Ecoboost, first registered in December 2019. According to the information provided by the seller, the car is not only well maintained, but has also been further tuned by competent hands. 12,800 kilometers are on the clock. 22,500 euros requested.
The information in the Fiesta advert leaves you wanting more
The seller explained the small Ford in detail. In addition to low mileage, there are many other advantages. It starts with the fact that the Fiesta is definitely full service history. The seller procured the car from a Ford dealer who had the car in the showroom as a demonstration vehicle. According to information, there are slight signs of wear and tear on the exterior, but no dents, scratches or other damage. The wild Ford is also always properly warmed up and only filled with Super Plus.
The equipment is complete except for the brake calipers which are painted red. This means that there’s a panoramic glass sunroof and launch controls inside, among other things. The seller also lists exclusive skins and performance packs. With regard to the setup made, only highlights should be summarized here: coilover kit, stainless steel exhaust system from Milltek, front splitter and rear spoiler from Maxton, pressure pipes and intercooler from Airtec. Finally, the rear seats were removed and replaced with carbon Clubsport supports with mesh and carpet. As a counterweight, Ford has a Ford Performance aluminum strut at the front.
You should consider this when buying
If you are enthusiastic about sporty cars like what Ford has to offer, you should check a few points before buying. The bottom line is classic: Can the Fiesta ensure the good conditions the ads suggest during a test drive? Is all the information provided by the seller correct? Are the signs of wear as described in the ad?
How professional are the conversions at the Fiesta?
Apart from that, you should take a closer look at conversions. The seller writes that he is a specialist and therefore has done a lot himself. If you want to be safe, you should still check the quality of the action or consult an expert for assessment. The more professional the tuning is done, the less potential surprises it offers later. The question of whether all the installed parts have been included can also be answered at the same time.
What has little Ford been up to so far?
Finally, it is still necessary to explain Ford’s goals in as much detail as possible. This could be the third car for a relaxing weekend trip. The strut that is installed behind the front seat can also be in the car because the seller brings the Fiesta for track days or similar motorsport events. If that’s the case, that’s not necessarily a criterion for not buying a car. But that means the Fiesta is loaded in a different way than a trip to the ice cream parlor.
