If you're looking to lease a car delivering great levels of track performance, then the contract hire Ford Focus ST Edition is one to consider.
That's because the hot hatch has gone on sale and promises to be the most dynamic version yet of the Focus ST.
It's priced from £35,795 and is now the fourth-generation's range-topper.
And a lot of the improvement in performance comes with replacing the cars standard springs and dampers with a specialist coil-over suspension that delivers a more track-focused car.
Also, the suspension comes with an instruction manual for drivers to manually tune it to their specific needs.
There's just one engine for the Ford Focus ST Edition car lease model and it's a turbocharged 2.3-litre EcoBoost petrol engine.
This punchy unit delivers 276 bhp with torque of 420Nm.
The power is delivered using a six-speed manual gearbox, and the 0 to 62 mph sprint time is 5.7 seconds.
The electronically controlled limited-slip differential also plays a key role to distribute the power to the wheel that needs it when the four-cylinder engine is being put through its paces.
The new ST Edition models are recognisable in their exclusive paint colour of Azura Blue, along with high-gloss black detailing and a contrasting black roof.
There are also part-leather Recaro sport seats in the cabin and unique ST badging.
The ST Edition also features 19-inch alloy wheels, and the ride height is 10 mm lower than the standard ST.
If required, another 20 mm drop in the ride height can be obtained.
The new ST Edition is only available in selected European markets and is aimed squarely at what Ford calls 'true driving enthusiasts'.
Other tweaks to improve the driving dynamics includes adding flow-formed alloy wheels and having selectable drive modes, which includes 'track mode'.
Ford says that the hatchback body style has the lowest weight possible for delivering precision and control, and everything works together to deliver maximum driver engagement.
There's no doubt that the new contract hire Ford Focus ST Edition is an excellent creation to deliver track-focused thrills and the car leasing deals should be investigated.
