Ford Fiesta ST: a tiny and angry performance car which deserved to be replicated at 1/18 scale model
DNA Collectibles always looks for interesting cars with temperament to reproduce in 1 18 scale model. The Ford Fiesta ST completely meets these requirements and was highly acclaimed by our community! ST stands for “Sports Technologies”, and sportive it is indeed:
- 200 hp EcoBoost Engine
- 1,5l with 3 cylinders
- 290 Nm torque
- 0 - 100 kmh (0 - 62 mph) in 6.5 seconds / max speed of 232 kmh (144 mph)
Praised by the press for its high level performance, the Ford Fiesta ST body is also used in the WRC championship!
The Ford Fiesta ST Mk8 (8th generation) from 2020 was never replicated before at 1:18 scale. DNA Collectibles didn’t need further arguments to exclusively reproduce this fantastic car in a limited edition.
Our Ford Fiesta ST is available in 4 different body colors: Performance Blue, Magnetic Grey, Race Red and Frozen White.
Let’s have a look at the front of the car for a moment. Below the Ford logo on the hood, the honeycomb perforation of the front grill is extremely well replicated. Can you notice the radiator behind it? This is our realistic touch! Check out the ST logo integrated to the front grill to leave no doubt about the sportive attitude of the car. The LED headlights and foglights are also very accurate and finely reproduced.
Let’s focus now on the side of the car. The beautiful and big 18 inches 2 tones aluminum rims give us a glimpse of the red calipers behind them and bring additional testosterone to this sportive miniature car. To be as realistic as possible, in addition to the privacy tinted windows, we also added as separate parts the turning signal on the rear-view mirror and the door handles.
Regarding the rear of the scale model car replica, the spoiler is there to confirm the wild and sporty spirit of the car. We took great care to beautifully reproduce the complex engraved rear lights. Look at all the textures and the moulding inside! The chromed dual exhaust pipe is topped by a honeycomb diffuser just like the real Ford Fiesta ST. You already know our dedication to details, and we didn’t miss a thing! Even the 4 tiny parking sensors are there! Finally, the Ford and ST logos are precisely integrated to the trunk.
The interior color is black with carbon and aluminum inserts.
The cockpit is amazingly detailed ! Sharp eyes can even read all the inscriptions and icones applied on all and every tiny button from the Ford Performance steering wheel, the commodos, to the central console. Even the launch control wording is visible on the instrument cluster.
The GPS is true to reality and displays the ST logo. The 6 speed manual gear lever has an aluminum knob with red inscriptions like the actual car.
The bucket seats proudly integrate the red ST logo as well as the Recaro logo on the side. We also replicated the horizontal lines and the vertical sewing stitches.
Just the once will not hurt, the seat belts are made of real fabric and the buckles are photo etched parts.
