The new 2012 Ford Focus ST has now had a price tag attached costing £21,995.

The new 247brp hot hatch will cost the above price while its ST Estate model will cost £23,095 to purchase from new. As of June 1st orders are being taken for the purchase of these stunning new Fords with Dealers expected to receive them by September 2012.

Compared to Volkswagen, who have bumped up the price of their VW Golf GTI in the recent year, to £25,330 despite having a 207 bhp engine. It seems that Ford might come out on top with their new model with UK Ford enthusiasts itching to get their hands on the wheel.

Between 2002 and 2010 Ford sold 35,000 of their previous ST models and is expected to do just as well as the vehicle will be available to purchase globally.

So what can be expected from the new Focus ST?

Tuned to produce 247brp with its 2.0 litre ecoboost engine, the ST has lost its 5th cylinder which the previous Volvo- sourced ST engine had meaning emissions and economy will improve by a staggering fifth with 169g/km of CO2 and 39.2mg.

The UK ST model will come equipped with Bluetooth, Keyless start, Recaro seats, DAB radio and 18 inch alloys as standard.
