With excitement building over Ford's introduction of the new Fiesta to the U.S. market, it's fun to get to know its international brethren. Ford is introducing a new limited edition of the Fiesta to the UK called the Zetec S Red special edition. This zippy little ride gets a red body paint (called "Colorado") and a checkered flag roof paint. Inside, the Zetec S Red sports leather seats and privacy glass. The powerplant will be a gasoline-only 1.6-litre, 100PS that Ford calls "zesty yet thrifty." See more details after the break.
Ford will only be making 400 of these special models and will sell them for £13,000. Ford UK sold almost 43,000 of the popular Fiesta in the UK through the end of May and previous limited edition Fiestas have sold out quickly.
