welcome to the june issue!

I hope you all enjoyed the 'Old vs New' theme running through the May issue? When we were working on that issue, it got me thinking – should we include more old-school content in Fast Ford to complement the already awesome selection of new age stuff we cover. Naturally, the answer was a resounding 'yes'! So, from this issue onwards you'll notice that we've added a hint of retro flavour to blend in with the more modern stuff too. This issue sees a new 'Motorsport Memories' feature looking back at some of the best-loved competition cars Ford has ever built – starting this month with the Escort WRC, a quick 'Back in the Day' page where we crack open the mag's archives, and the introduction of our 'Old School Hero' feature…

the element of surprise

Stealth goes a long way in the world of modified cars. There’s no greater joy than that of wiping the grin off somebody’s face who’s pulled up alongside you at the lights and assumed you were easy prey – whether you’re rocking a rough-and-ready sleeper, a huge-engined rat project, or a stock-looking car that hides surprising firepower, the effect is the same: the underdog scores another victory, and the balance of equilibrium is restored. A Series 2 RS Turbo could never be regarded as a sleeper, of course – its overt hot-hatch styling boisterously walks the walk, from an era when lipstick red wrote all the cheques and in-your-face spoilers were a must. It’s fair to say this model has passed into the pantheon of all-time greats, a car that so…

FIESTA ST PERFORMANCE EDITION IS A UK-ONLY SPECIAL The Mk8 Fiesta ST has been universally winning hearts and accolades, just like the Mk7 that came before it, with its combination of stellar performance, playfully agile chassis, generous equipment and affordable pricing serving up the perfect package for today’s hot hatch enthusiast. And because the performance car buyers of the United Kingdom have always been such eager advocates of the hot hatch genre, we’re set to receive a UK-only special edition. The Fiesta ST Performance Edition will be a strictly limited run of just 600 cars, each one based on the three-door model in ST-3 trim. They’ll be distinguishable by their eye-catching Deep Orange paint, and the performance credentials are taken seriously with the upgrades focused on the chassis: the fresh 18in…

REDLINE TUNING DASTEK UNICHIP From £780 (modern turbo engine) Remapping a car’s ECU is a key process when it comes to performance tuning, allowing the user to adjust the engine’s calibration to suit any hardware upgrades installed. And one way to do that is with Dastek’s Unichip – a clever system that works in harmony with the car’s factory ECU (therefore retaining all the same safety features and advanced engine control systems) but allows specialist mappers to adjust the parameters to remap the car for optimum performance. It’s all very clever stuff, and even allows wirelesslyswitchable maps and loads of other cool features – there’s detailed descriptions of how it all works on the website, it’s worth a look. www.unichipeurope.com DIRENZA MK7 FIESTA ST CAT-BACK £250 The Mk7 ST platform continues to be massively popular, with more…
