Jack Bates - Ford Fiesta ST3 Mk8 

It originally came as 200bhp standard from the factory but he has since had a stage 1 remap done which has made the car a better ride. An aftermarket Cobra exhaust was also added meaning the car not only looks better but sounds nicer too.

This stunning car is owned by Jack, a 23-year-old car enthusiast from Shropshire, UK. He has always had a passion for cars and anything with an engine. Growing up he loved to go to the Steam Rally with his Grandad and admire the classic cars on display. As he got older he discovered the wider car scene and has been a regular visitor at Ford Fair for the last 14 years.  His passion for all things automotive is definitely in his blood and he now works as a Maintenance Engineer for a company that makes automotive parts for Jaguar Landrover. 

Jack has owned this car now for around 18 months and bought it as he personally considers it to be the best hot hatch on the market.  With its modern interior, it also comes with good handling and is super light.  It comes with a 1.5L engine which gives the car plenty of torque and is a fast and nimble car. The colour of the car appealed and allowed for lots of subtle mods to enhance this already impressive car. The sleek shape gives it a sporty and modern look and is one of the first 5 doors ST in the UK and is unique to Europe.

Jack decided to go with lime green accents to enhance the overall look of the car and complement the existing design. He designed his own decals to add body styling to the car, added a spoiler riser that fits under the original spoiler and lifts it up, and a lowline kit to give it an overall more aggressive look. The car has concave Bola Csr wheels on 30mm low springs, being one of only 2 in the UK with these wheels. This has given the car the illusion of it being wider.

It originally came as 200bhp standard from the factory but he has since had a stage 1 remap done which has made the car a better ride. An aftermarket Cobra exhaust was also added meaning the car not only looks better but sounds nicer too.

Jack says the car is exciting to drive and that the car gets a lot of attention. Even the engine bay is ready for display with colour coded detailing. A lot of the work has been done by Jack himself and when needed he has supported local businesses in asking them to do work for him. Jack’s advice for anyone looking to own this car would be to always get a remap done as this gives it more power making it a more exciting drive. Also to get a torque mount for the engine and most of all be unique and make the car your own don’t feel the need to follow everyone else. 

He is an active member of the car scene and has made many friends, this, in turn, has improved his social life too. It has also given him a new hobby with photography and has pushed the boundary of his imagination meaning he is always on the lookout for the next creative photo opportunity and location. Cars are definitely going to be a lifelong interest for him.
