We can't find much fault with the 2011 Ford Fiesta, but if there's one major gripe, it's a lack of power (well, and paddle shifters for the dual-clutch gearbox). However, it looks like that lone complaint may be addressed with the introduction of the Fiesta ST, the smaller sibling to the recently revealed Focus ST.

Similar to the mule caught in Detroit earlier this year, the three-door Fiesta is back with a massive front-mount intercooler, revised body work, new wheels and a high performance exhaust, along with some racy Recaros that probably won't make the trek from prototype to production.

While it's doubtful Ford would port over the Focus ST's 247 horsepower 2.0-liter EcoBoost mill, the 180 hp turbo'd 1.6-liter or rumored EcoBoost 1.4 are definitely in the cards. With the Focus ST finally having a shot in the States, the globally-certified Fiesta ST might come along for the ride. And maybe a set of paddle shifters will be included in the package.
