Ford announced that the 2015 Focus ST Facelift will make its word debut on June 27 at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed in the United Kingdom. Just like the standard version, the 2015 Ford Focus ST Facelift will get a new design consisting in a new set of headlights, a redesigned front grille as well as a new bonnet that features a centre power dome leading down to the grille.

The rear end also receives redesigned headlights as well as an updated bumper. Under the hood, we expect to find the same engine that powers the current version, which means that we will see a four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine that generates 250 PS and 360 Nm of torque.

In addition, Ford also announced that is teaming up with Sony Computer Entertainment to stage the first-ever “virtual versus real” race on the Goodwood hill. The new 2015 Focus ST Facelift will race in real time against the Focus ST featured in the Gran Turismo 6 game for Playstation 3.

The real car will be drive by Ben Collins a.k.a. the former Stig. Visitors to the Ford stand will also be able to drive the Focus ST in the Gran Turismo 6 game and have the chance to record their own times.

The 2015 Ford Mustang will make its first U.K. appearance at Goodwood as the Ford Team RS vehicle dynamics specialist David Put will drive the V8-powered Mustang GT in the Supercar Class.
