Attending Las Vegas’ SEMA is a pilgrimage for any domestic car enthusiast, and Ford is embracing its fanbase at this year’s show. The company will display six Ford STs with unique aftermarket tuning from November 3-6––here are the highlights for each of the hot hatches.
1) Ford Focus ST by CJ Pony Parts
With an upgraded turbocharger, electronic air suspension, a cold air intake, and upgraded Wilwood brakes, this CJ Pony Parts ST is an absolute track monster. Increased chassis stiffness comes courtesy of COBB tuning anti-roll bars, and the ST’s aerodynamics improve thanks to a CJ Pony Parts front splitter and extended side skirts.
Best of all, the striking House of Kolor Ultra Orange Pearl paint will stand out on the road and on the track alike. CJ Pony Parts has created the ultimate performance ST with flash to match.
2) Focus ST by Rally Innovations
Rally Innovations has created a purpose-built rally car out of the Focus ST–a four-point harness complements the rear seat delete and full roll cage for maximum weight savings and safety. Technical tuning includes coilover suspension and an upgraded intercooler and exhaust, meaning that drivers will be able to power effortlessly across dirt circuits. Massive fender flares, an LED rally light bar, and rear hatch spoiler complete this ST’s transformation.
3) Ford Focus ST by Cobb Tuning
A sportier, edgier retake of the standard Focus ST, Cobb’s ST boasts a gripping driving experience and customization for avid cyclists. In addition to the Cobb turbo kit and Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, this Focus ST wears a Thule ThruRide bike rack system, meaning that you can dominate the tarmac before taking on the trails.
This ST’s Cobb race red paint and Rotiform DUS wheels can’t be missed, and the custom sideskirts add unmistakable sporty flair.
4) Focus ST by FSWERKS
The most understated of the tuned Focus STs, the FSWERKS ST adds sporty sideskirts, a revised front splitter, and new wheels and tires. The majority of upgrades come under the hood, with FSWERKS ECU tuning, a Cool-Flo air intake system, and a front-mounted intercooler adding impressive performance. Drivers can enjoy a short-throw shifter for precise gear changes, while this ST’s anti-sway bar and performance brakes ensure complete confidence through every corner.
5) Ford Fiesta ST by Cinemotive Media
Designed as a sporty support/gear vehicle, the Cinemotive Media ST sports Ignited HID lighting, a SeaSucker Mini Bomber bicycle roof rack, and a host of Cobb performance upgrades. This hot Fiesta would be at home carrying a film crew during a car chase, conquering technical roads with ease in order to keep up with the action. Recaro seats, 6-piston brake calipers, and a cold air intake let drivers experience world-class sporting character during every drive.
6) Ford Fiesta ST by DSPORT Magazine
Aimed at creating a fully track-ready Fiesta, DSPORT Magazine added the full performance treatment to the Fiesta ST–at high boost pressures, this hot hatch’s 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine can produce north of 400 horsepower. Coilover suspension and P-Zero racing slicks help to deliver maximum power to the ground, and an 8-point roll cage complements SPARCO seats and a SPARCO steering wheel for a race-ready feel. DSPORT Magazine’s Fiesta ST will compete in the Pirelli World Challenge Touring Car class, albeit with horsepower capped at 300.
