The Ford Fiesta ST is a great car just the way it is, despite the fact that it may not be the fastest vehicle in the world. Now thanks to an upgrade from the Montune American branch the vehicle is going to come with a turbocharged upgrade to take it to 280 horses.

The upgraded Ford Fiesta ST is going to put the frighteners on the Volkswagen Golf R, which offers up 292 horses. The ST MRX kit brings a larger turbocharger to the vehicle with the ECU tune. The turbo comes from the Garret GT2554R line and this means that it will bolt onto the stock exhaust manifold.

Mountune offer custom tunes for owners along with additional modifications. At the moment no more details have been announced, other than the kit been revealed to go on sale later this year.

The kit is takes the Ford Fiesta ST as close to the RS as you could get, without actually having the RS and it may just scare the VW Golf R.
