Focus ST Gets Axed

The Ford Focus ST will be axed later this year as it fails to meet new EU emission regulations.

The ST has a 2.5 litre turbocharged engine that produces 221 bhp and the news of its death comes just one week after it was announced that the production run of the Honda Civic Type R will end as well.

Ford and Honda, however, are not the only manufacturers to suffer as a result of the change in regulations.

VW will have to stop building their 5.0 litre turbo-diesel engine, and both the Alfa Romeo Brera 3.2 V6 and Mazda RX8 will have to be killed off.
