A fun mobile with three cylinders? At first glance, the eighth-generation Ford Fiesta ST looks like it’s been neglected. But the small engine with a displacement of 1.5 liters has 200 hp and 300 Nm. And how! He revs up happily, pushes hard, growls like a big one and makes a real alarm at the top. Add to that the sharp steering and the light rear end and you have a first-class fun vehicle.
Such a car is currently being offered for sale on eBay. It is a 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, it has also been further tuned by a competent hand. 12,800 kilometers are on the clock. 22,500 euros are called for.
The information in the Fiesta ad makes you want more
The seller describes the small Ford in detail. In addition to the low mileage, there are many other advantages. It starts with the fact that the Fiesta is obviously full service history. The seller got the car from a Ford dealer who had the car in the showroom as a demonstration vehicle. According to the information, there are slight signs of wear on the outside, but no dents, scratches or other damage. The wild Ford was also always properly warmed up and only filled up with Super Plus.
The equipment is complete except for the red painted brake calipers. This means that there is a panoramic glass sunroof and launch control on board, among other things. The seller also lists a leather exclusive and a performance package. With regard to the tuning that was carried out, only the highlights should be summarized here: a coilover kit, a stainless steel exhaust system from Milltek, front splitter and rear spoiler from Maxton, pressure pipe and intercooler from Airtec. Finally, the rear seat was removed and replaced with a carbon Clubsport strut with mesh and carpet. As a counterweight, the Ford has a Ford Performance aluminum strut brace at the front.
You should take this into account when purchasing
If you are enthusiastic about a sporty car like the Ford offered, you should definitely check a few points before buying. The basis is the classic: Can the Fiesta confirm the good condition that the advert suggests during a test drive? Is all the information given by the seller correct? Do the signs of wear match what is described in the ad?
How professionally were the conversions carried out on the Fiesta?
In addition, you should definitely take a closer look at the conversions. The seller writes that he is a specialist and has therefore done a lot himself. If you want to be on the safe side, you should still check the quality of the measures or consult an expert for the assessment. The more professional tuning is done, the fewer potential surprises it offers later. The question as to whether all installed parts have been entered can also be answered at the same time.
What has the little Ford experienced so far?
Finally, it is still necessary to illuminate the purpose of the Ford in as much detail as possible. It can be a third car for leisurely weekend trips. The strut installed behind the front seats can also be in the car because the seller took the Fiesta to track days or similar motorsport events. If that’s the case, that’s not necessarily a criterion for not buying the car. But it would mean that the Fiesta was loaded differently than on the way to the ice cream parlor.
