I assume it has to be a Fiesta RS, and Dr No(FMR) said they were not fun.

I think I said that I wouldn't want to live with one, not that they weren't fun in small doses. Not totally unlike yourself.

Fiesta ST isn't it? 200bhp before the mandatory remap.

Thought the RS had a useless spoiler on the back.

(unless this is a reference to the old XR2i-era RS Turbo)

Did I mention that a pal has just bought, because his wife liked it, a 500 Abarth Riva 695 with 180 horses. I had a run out in it. Crazy torque steer, noisy, kart like rock hard suspension.
Not my cup of Darjeeling. Or his I fear. But wifey likes it.

I hired a sporty 500 in Sicily and drove across the island. I had always lusted after them in every way, but it was an uncomfortable bag of merda. Such a disappointment, nearly on the mary rose level of anti climax.

My bad, I dont keep up with fast ford nomenclature because, well to put it bluntly, they cant keep up with me.

My son has just bought himself one of the newer ones, just over a year old. It is a 1.5l 3 cylinder engine and it really is an impressive piece of kit.
Clearly it revs very nicely but surprisingly (to me) it also pulls very well at low revs without having to change gear. The steering is a bit skittish for my tastes especially in Sports mode but it hangs on round corners beautifully and is very capable on motorways too. All mod cons - nice screen with phone integration etc.
