There are absolutely no details regarding the specifics of the vehicles, though Ford has hinted that we can expect a “major new design concept” and “details of the next Focus performance car.”

This gives a clue on the likely unveiling of the Focus ST, which is to come equipped with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost mill that would give 250 PS (184 kW / 247 hp) and 360 Nm (265 lb-ft) of torque.

Ford still has the mystery quotient intact regarding the other prospective releases. But going by the teaser (posted above) that has been made visible, we need to expect something racy from Ford stables.

American auto manufacturer Ford will display its new 2012 Ford Focus ST in the upcoming Paris Auto Show in the month of October. The new model will feature a new EcoBoost engine that is likely to be similar to the 2.5-liter turbocharged engines present in existing Ford models such as the Galaxy, S-Max and Mondeo.

The EcoBoost unit in the next Focus ST could provide as much as 300 bhp of power and will employ the torque vectoring technology created by Ford to channel that power to the front wheels of the car and to help the car grip the road as much as possible.

The new Focus ST will also be capable of bursting from 0 to 100 kmph speeds in a matter of 6 seconds and has a maximum speed of 250 kmph (155 mph). It will also be more fuel efficient than the existing Focus ST model and is expected to release in 2011, after the Europe launch of the hatchback and wagon variant of the Ford Focus in April 2011.
