Ford Previews Six Modified Focus And Fiestas For SEMA

Before SEMA 2016 kicks off on November 1, Ford is previewing six modified Fiesta ST, Focus ST and Focus RS models that will be on display at the event.

First off the bat is a widebody Fiesta ST, which has been installed with a new turbocharger kit, COBB Accessport V3 and a new exhaust system to significantly increase horsepower from the 1.6-liter engine. Additionally, the car includes a Mountune limited-slip differential, JRI coilovers, Wilwood six-piston brakes, distinctive wheels, a special body kit and an overhauled interior.

Next up is a black and red Focus ST outfitted with retro door graphics, a Mishimoto Performance air intake, new intercooler, VMS Racing dual camber catch can, custom tune, Flowmaster American Thunder exhaust, coilovers and forged 19-inch wheels with Continental rubber.

A second Fiesta ST has also been prepared with a more subtle and refined exterior design yet still has numerous performance modifications including a front mount intercooler, coilovers and ADV.1 wheels.

Also on the cards is a customized Focus RS painted grey with bright orange accents. It has a beefed up turbocharger from BorgWarner, intercooler, cold air intake, methanol injection, Wavetrac front differential and 1-piece carbon fiber driveshaft. Like the others, it also has coilover suspension, aftermarket wheels and some interior touches.

The most impressive of them all is a track-themed Focus RS from Roush Performance. Its engine has been extensively modified and now delivers 500 hp and is complemented with a host of aerodynamic changes including the fitment of a front splitter, new rear wing, extended side skirts and enlarged air intakes.

Last but not least will be another Focus RS adorned in a special racing livery and fitted with H&R coilovers, O.Z Racing wheels and a front splitter and side skirts from Triple R Composites.

    want really badly

  • Bash

    badly really want

  • Tumbi Mtika

    The correct plural would be: “Foci”.

    • eb110americana

      True, and I wish they would use this term more often, but “Focuses” or “Focus” are more broadly understood. I don’t think I ever heard multiples referred to as “Toyota Matrices” either. Anyone else have other examples of oddly pluralized model names? Lexus probably comes from Lexis, which is already plural.
