Historic sports cars take center stage on the Ford stand in Geneva

Ford traveled to this year’s edition of the Geneva Auto Show to introduce the updated Fiesta ST. Although it’s not entirely new, the Blue Oval’s smallest hot hatch gets a revised look that brings a redesigned front end and horizontal lights out back. The most noteworthy modifications are found under the hood, where the outgoing model’s four-cylinder engine has been replaced by a turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder.

Eager to show off its credentials in the performance department, Ford also brought out a handful of historic sports cars built between the 1960s and the 1990s. These included a GT40, an Escort RS, a Gulf GR8, and an Escort RS Cosworth. We’ve assembled the pictures we took during the show into a gallery — enjoy!
