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.
