That's pretty cool I didn't know they had an ST version of the Fiesta and I thought it was only the Focus.  That's a sharp lookin' car!  How fast is it 0-60?

The numbers vary according to what magazine you read. Car and Driver magazine says 0-60 in 6.7.

 

The Fiesta ST is only available with a six-speed manual transmission. It's 0-60 time is hindered a bit because it requires two shifts during 0-60. This car was really made for twisty roads and not drag racing. There are plenty of videos on YouTube of the Fiesta ST on racetracks such as the Nurburgring. The car was developed by Ford of Europe in Belgium.

 

It has 197 horsepower, but it is about 500 lbs. lighter than the Focus ST and has better brakes than the Focus ST.

Yea the 0-60 time of my car varied among those publishers too.

They're intended for indoor soccer but I'm gonna (ab)use them for calisthenics training (street workout) and a bit of parkour, indoor and outdoor. I've been using DC skate sneakers for most of my training up until now and while they're holding up pretty well, I think they're too heavy and bulky.

 

I need something that is more snugly around my feet and lighter, while still offering protection from drops and narrow edges etc. Going on a limb here, running shoes were advised to me but I want to try these.

 

Also got a somewhat matching tanktop and pants.

 

 

Neat idea, though be careful your first time out. The soles on that are meant for a hard court like parquet or wood. I've found when you're not on those types of surfaces the traction isn't very good.

Awesome ride man!  I wish more cars came with manual (despite auto becoming more superior day by day).  0-60 in two gears!?!?!?  Wow!   Two gear shifts gets me to 115mph LOL
