These Are Ford’s Modded Focus Hatches For SEMA

Ford has released the first details about four Focus concepts which will be unveiled at SEMA later this month.

First up, the Focus ST by Blood Type Racing features a Midnight Purple exterior with a front splitter, a wide body kit, and a rear wing. The company also installed a drone helipad and 19-inch B-Forged wheels with Toyo Tires T1 Sports tires.

Under the hood, the 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine has been equipped with a new Borg Warner turbocharger, a Ford Performance exhaust system, and a COBB tuner. The model also features a Mishimoto intercooler, an upgraded radiator, and a bespoke interior.

The Ford Focus RS TriAthlete by VMP Performance goes in a different direction as it features a matte black exterior with a carbon fiber hood, a front splitter, and a rear diffuser. The model also has an Air Lift suspension and 19-inch Forgestar CF5 Deep Concave wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.

The car’s 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine has been outfitted with a carbon fiber cold air intake, a high-performance intercooler, and a cat-back exhaust system. Other changes include the installation of a dual port blow-off valve and a COBB tuner.

Next up is the Focus RS by Universal Technical Institute. Dressed in Axalta Pennzoil yellow paint, the model has a number of carbon fiber components from Anderson Composite. Other highlights include a coilover suspension, Baer brakes, and 19-inch Rotiform wheels with Falken FK150 tires.

Performance modifications are limited but include a FullRace intake, a new intercooler, and a Ford Performance exhaust system.

Last but not least, the Focus RS by Rally Innovations pays tribute to rally car drivers. As a result, the model has a rally-inspired appearance with a ventilated hood, an aluminum front splitter, and a large rear wing. Elsewhere, there are auxiliary lights and OZ Racing Superturismo GT wheels with Nitto NT01 tires.

On the performance front, the car has been equipped with a coilover suspension, Eibach sway bars, and high-performance brakes. There’s also an upgraded engine with a Borla downpipe, a cat-back exhaust, and a number of Mountune components.


    I’d rather see a Focus RS500 but I guess these are nice too.

    I’m actually surprised (and disappointed) that nobody could improve upon the RS design.
