We finally get to see how the production version of the long anticipated ST version of the Ford Focus looks. Unveiled today at the Frankfurt Motor Show, it will feature a new aerodynamic bodykit, 18-inch alloys, a lowered sports suspension and Goodyear Eagle F1 tires. It will be available not only for the 5-door hatchback but also for the wagon.

What you’re interested in is what’s under that hood. You’ll find an EcoBoost 4-cylinder 2.0-liter power unit that develops 247 hp (250 PS / 184 kW) and a peak torque of 265 lb.-ft (360 Nm). The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. Some of the tech goodies include a three-mode ESP, Torque Vectoring Control and Torque Steer Compensation.

In related news, the Blue Oval also showed the public attending the Frankfurt Motor Show its ST-R model, which is a track-only car that has been designed for various racing series. It has upgraded brakes, a race-tuned suspension, a FIA-compliment rollcage and the interior cabin has been stripped out for shaving off some of the weight.
