Based on the Ford Fiesta Zetec and also available exclusively in black, the Centura boasts a comprehensive list of additional standard equipment valued at £1,800, including metallic Panther Black paint, chrome mirror and door caps, LED daylight running lights, 16 inch seven spoke alloy wheels, automatic headlamps and windscreen wipers, reverse parking sensors and a parking camera mounted in the rear view mirror.
Just 1,000 Ford Fiesta Centura special editions will be available — why not 100 we wonder? — priced at £13,395 for the three-door version and £13,995 for the five-door. The Ford Fiesta remains the UK’s best-selling car with 52,327 sold in the first half of this year.
