Limited to 250 cars and available only in three-door form, the Fiesta Metal offers 98kW and 160Nm of torque - up from the 89kW and 151Nm offered with the current Fiesta Zetec.
Ford credits the boost to a re-tune of its 1.6 litre Duratec petrol engine, while a new air intake and wider exhaust piping and additional engine tuning allows an extra 300rpm in the rev range.
The Metal's styling tweaks include a Panther Black Metallic exterior and 17-inch black alloy wheels, along with twin chrome exhaust tips.
The black theme continues inside, with the dark treatment given to the centre stack bezel, air vent rings and door pulls. There's also black heated leather sports seats with silver contrast stitching, and leather trim to the gear shifter and handbrake.
Sports alloy pedal covers are featured down below, along with stainless steel door scuff plates and unique floor mats with silver piping.
Features include climate control, keyless start, electrochromatic rear view mirror, automatic projector headlights with follow-me-home lighting, rain sensing wipers, cruise control and rear parking sensors.
The usual Fiesta features are also on board, including Dynamic Stability Control, Electric Power-Assisted Steering, Intelligent Protection System, anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Bluetooth with Voice Control.
The Fiesta Metal also gets curtain/thorax and driver's knee airbags as standard.
The Fiesta Metal is limited to 250 cars, and is priced at $22,990 plus on-road costs.
