Ford Fiesta ST spy shot – Click above for high-res image gallery

Our sneaky spy shooters have once again trained their lenses on the upcoming Ford Fiesta ST testing at the 'Ring, only this time, the culprit was caught in a full five-door suit instead of the three-door hatch spied before.

Besides the additional bodystyle, the new hatch is sporting a new set of wheels that should be the standard hoops fitted to the Fiesta ST when it makes its official debut in late 2011. We also note some alterations to the fascia – instead of the large round lamps at the bottom corners, the ST prototype is wearing the same shapely chrome units as the standard Fiesta and a deeper chin spoiler with some camo-obscured ducting. Out back, the rear bumper's aero bits also seem to be reworked.

According to the latest rumors, a 1.6-liter EcoBoost inline-four is mounted under the hood, routing 180 horsepower to the front wheels. If we were betting men, we'd wager this mule was caught without all its ST-spec clothes on. Have a look for yourself in the included image gallery.

      This makes me more excited than the Focus ST. Now can we get it in a 2-door?

      I just wish the grille was the same as the Euro Fiesta. It looks so much tidier!

        US bumper specs unfortunately didn't allow for it.

      I think the SES Fiesta is a fun little car with a 5spd... Can't even imagine how much WIN this car will have. If the ST treatment is anything like the SVT treatment of the Focus I'm SOOOO in!

      Great looking car...if they put an EcoBoost 4 pot in there, should be a pretty hot hatch.
