A Fiestavus With a Bit More Bite
The emergence of Mountune as a kind of AMG-for-the-masses is one of the feel-good automotive tales of recent years.
The Essex-based concern is one of those great British success stories that few have heard of, but are the brains behind countless below-the-radar engineering projects for all sorts of race teams and manufacturers, both big and small. Now, thanks to the openly publicised partnership with Ford, Mountune is getting the exposure – and plaudits - it deserves.
Regular visitors to DR will know that we were massively impressed with Mountune’s Focus ST, for the performance kit elevated this likeable, capable hot hatch to genuine giant-killer status. We also fell in love with the more extensive body of work – mapping, cams, exhaust, chassis and seats - that went into the Fiesta ST 185, for it turned a fairly average small hot hatch into a fast, feisty and utterly addictive machine.
