Ford will be introducing its Focus ST concept at the Paris Motor Show. The ST possesses an aerodynamic body kit, huge air intake, ‘Tangerine Scream’ paint, and a center-mounted dual exhaust system.

The interior is not exempt from the styling and has a cockpit with two-tone leather sport seats, contrast stitching, and faux carbon fiber trim. Although the public has been told that the vehicle is powered by a 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine with 250 PS (184 kW / 247 hp), Ford is keeping other specifications a secret until the big reveal.

A statement from the company says that the car provides a heady cocktail of ‘exhilarating performance and handling accompanied by an addictive sound’

Also, the vehicle is the first high-performance model developed under its global Performance Vehicles strategy. Though this sounds like it means that the car will be available in the US, this has not been confirmed yet. More information will be released on September 30th, and the car will be available on the market in 2011.
