The 720bhp Fiesta Evo

The 720bhp Fiesta Evo

23rd December 2012

720bhp. Seven hundred and twenty brake horse power. Lets just think about that for a minute. That's more than an Aventador. It's more than a 458, an MP4-12c, and its more than double what a Fiesta WRC produces.

Now, a stack of power is great on paper, but if that power has to cart about considerable weight then the effect is diminished, the Veyron for example has four figures of horsepower but 1888kg to shift. That makes it 530bhp per tonne.… The 720bhp Fiesta Evo »

The greatest modified cars are not really modified cars at all. The use of such a term would indicate that the initial vehicle largely remains and for the best Fords at Ford Fair this was most certainly not the case.…

At each show there's always one or two cars which really stand out from all the others and justify a little more attention and photographic flattery than normal.

Luke's Mk3.5 is one such car and a machine you'll have no doubt…

Everyone with a modified Fiesta wishes they had untold wealth and limitless funds to pour though an extravagant gold-plated funnel direct into their car. Sadly most of our income is required for the more mundane aspects of life, but imagine…

Rebirth Of Type-R

Rebirth Of Type-R

18th March 2003

The most famous Fiesta on the planet? Quite Possibly. For 9 years this car belonged to Fiesta Frenzy Head Honcho and general Zetec Turbo god Ian Howell. Kicking out astronomical power figures as a test bed for his engine development antics, the car clocked more magazine appearances than Victoria Beckham. In mid 2001 Ian decided to move on to bigger and equally-as-good things by purchasing a Focus to unleash his magic on. The engine from his Fiesta was kept, the…

There are some of us that like to make the odd change or two to our cars. A set of 15s, lower it a bit and maybe some ICE. There. That'll do. Quite content in driving round in a car that's better than when we first got it. Dave is not that sort of person though, rather than make key improvements to a car he chose to start a basic mk3 and transform it beyond all recognition. Believe it or…

H8VE U Ever seen..?

H8VE U Ever seen..?

4th March 2002

A Fiesta like this? Probably not. It's unique. Just when you thought you'd seen every conceivable Fiesta mod along comes Graeme 'Cubby' Cuthbertson with his awesome creation. Two years in the making and more than a few changes of plan along the way.

This car is probably one of the most eagerly awaited Fiestas to have ever been built. It started back in 1999 as a super smooth 5 door 1.1 dropped to the floor on 15" RS2000 wheels and pretty…

FT EXCLUSIVE! Question - How many colours can one car be? If the car in question is this stunning RS Turbo belonging to Jason Ripp, then the answer is six. It's impossible to describe in words how utterly amazing the paint on this car is. As the sun catches the panels the colour morphes from green right through orange and blue to purple.

Today is RSOC National Day and I am having trouble photographing the car due to the sheer number…

"Everything". "Everything?" "Yes, right down to sump plug and washer"

It's quite amazing just how organised some people are. Martin is leafing through a folder of bills and receipts, filed in chronological order, for every single penny he has spent on his car. To say Martin likes this car would be the understatement of the century, he lives for this car.

We're stood outside in the bright, warm April sunshine in a car park in Crewe. Stood before us, the light reflecting…

Duncan purchased the car you see before you in June 2000, Not surprisingly he was dead pleased. Good performance coupled with excellent looks. But, only a week later the clutch went. No problem, a new one was fitted only for it to promptly go pear shaped again a week later...

The guys at the garage who repaired the clutch for the second time said that it would probably go again as two stabilising brackets were missing from the engine. Quite rightly,…

Phattest Si On The Planet...

Phattest Si On The Planet...

20th April 2001

Back in 98 Paul showed the world how to create an Si with impact. 17"s, RS 2000 sideskirts and a one off twin exhaust led to jaws dropping wherever he went.

Paul bought this example back in 1997 and before long the standard Si was running a set of 15" TSW Hockenheims and sitting 35mm lower to the tarmac care of a set of Pi springs. Now anyone who has lowered a mk3.5 will tell you how much hassle it is…

Most people have a limit when it comes to modifying their car. Sometimes financial, other times they just think there is little point throwing thousands upon thousands of pounds at a Ford Fiesta, they'd prefer to spend the money on something that is already faster or newer. There are a few people however that go a little further, engine transplants or major bodywork and huge rims for example. Then there are a few people that go a lot further...This is…

"OH... MY... GOD...!!! EIGHTEENS??!!"

This is typical of the reaction from people when they see the numbers on the sidewall of Adrian's Falkens. The guy can't believe his eyes. "But it's so low!" Adrian just smiles and replies.

"They just went straight on after I took the 17"s off"

"really?"

"Not quite, I had to tweak a few other bits as well, I'm not saying what though, 'cos then everyone will be at it!" he laughs.

"It did help that the arches had already been…
