Ford Focus ST to Star in ‘The Sweeney’
The Sweeney reinvents the popular 1970s police drama to a suit a modern audience.
Staring Ray Winstone and Ben Drew, the London based duo will be fighting new types of crime in a very different London, and they will be doing it in the new ST.
While some are saying it is simply a recipe for disaster, many say that making a small hot hatch the start of what may be a blockbuster can only be a good thing.
A 2 litre four-cylinder engine powers the new ST, meaning 250 bhp.
A Ford was the favourite for Director Nick Love, as the 70s show featured a range of Fords, including Granadas, Consuls and Cortinas.
Anthony Ireson, Ford Britain marketing director, said: “The new Focus ST is a hugely exciting car for Ford with terrific dynamic credibility. It will be a car for real driving enthusiasts”.
