The Focus ST has already been seen in concept form, but it’s here at Frankfurt in full, 246bhp production trim. And the surprising (but excellent) news is there’s an estate version, too. The full story on the new Focus ST is here.

Finally, the Ford EVOS is a striking concept car that previews a new design language for the Blue Oval that we can expect to see hints of in the next Mondeo. Though we’re doubtful of those cool doors making production… See the full EVOS story here.
