Ford Previews Its Focus ST And Fiesta ST SEMA Show Tunes

As Ford’s ST brand of performance cars continues to grow in North America, the automaker’s crowded SEMA Show stand will also include six custom concepts based on the Focus ST and Fiesta ST.

CJ Pony Parts has converted the Focus ST into the “perfect blend of street capable and track ready.” The hot hatch features a heavily tuned powertrain with an upgraded turbo, as well as an AirLift suspension. The Ultra Orange Pearl paint and Fifteen52 Tremac R43 19-inch wheels make this customized Focus ST hard to ignore.

If you’re more into race-themed vehicles, the Focus ST by Rally Innovations is for you. The car features a Gundam-style body kit with wide fenders, big hood scoops and a massive rear wing, as well as a multitude of red accents and 19-inch matte graphite wheels. The custom roll cage and race seats with 4-point harnesses are in tune with the rally theme, as are the COBB tune for the powertrain, Greddy intake and exhaust, as well as the aluminum intercooler with piping.

The Focus ST by COBB Tuning is aimed at cyclists “looking to get into the proper mindset before a race.” The car features suspension and powertrain modifications, as well as styling upgrades such as the custom COBB race red paint and gold Rotiform forged DUS wheels.

Created by FSWERKS, the fourth and final customized Focus ST combines a clean exterior with performance upgrades consisting of an uprated engine and a short throw shift kit for quicker, more precise throws. The brakes were also upgraded, as was the suspension, which received a coilover setup, a lower front stress bar and an anti-sway bar.

Moving on to the Fiesta ST concepts, the first is from Cinemotive Media, which has transformed the small hot hatch into a stylish and capable support vehicle. The Fifteen52 body kit with the BC Racing coilover suspension gives the ST a strong presence, as do the unique grey paint and matte gold accents. The bicycle roof rack, Ignited HID lighting and COBB Tuning goodies round out the changes.

Finally, the Fiesta ST from DSPORT explores the limits of the 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine, with numerous upgrades boosting it to more than 400hp. However, DSPORT has race-prepped this ST to race in the Pirelli World Challenge Touring Car (TC) class, where it will be restricted to only 300hp.
