Ford Focus ST Sema 1

Η Ford θα κατέβει πάνοπλη στη SEMA. Ήδη ξέρουμε πως θα κατεβάσει 52 οχήματα και έχουμε δει τα δύο βελτιωμένα Mustang και τα πέντε Fiesta. Όπως είναι λογικό όμως, θα φέρει και 4 βελτιωμένα Focus ST!


Το πρώτο, το PM Lifestyle Focus ST, αποτελεί εορτασμό της «αυτοκινητιστικής κουλτούρας της S. California. Θα έχει ανθρακονημάτινο bodykit, custom χρώμα και νέα καθίσματα της Sparco ενώ μηχανικά, θα διαθέτει νέα ανάρτηση, φρένα της Wilwood και σύστημα ψεκασμού water-methanol για μερικά επιπλέον άλογα.

Το δεύτερο, ονόματι Green Filter Focus ST, είναι βαμμένο στα κλασικά χρώματα της Team Lotus και αποτελεί φόρο τιμής στην αγωνιστική κληρονομιά της φίρμας. Έχει custom εισαγωγή, νέο φίλτρο αέρα και νέα εξάτμιση. Θα φοράει δε και την Ground Force ανάρτηση που υπόσχεται «οδική συμπεριφορά ανάλογη της Lotus».

Τρίτο στη σειρά, το DRAGG –Drag Racing Against Gangs & Graffiti-. Αυτό το Focus ST είναι εμπνευσμένο από τα αστυνομικά οχήματα με LED φώτα στην οροφή και μία καραμπίνα στο πίσω κάθισμα! Εντάξει, έχει ανάρτηση της Eibach, φρένα της Wilwood και εξάτμιση της Borla αλλά σοβαρά; Καραμπίνα;

Τέλος, έχουμε το Universal Technical Institute Focus ST, που είναι βαμμένο στα χρώματα της Gulf Racing και έχει «πρησμένα» φτερά. Το αυτοκίνητο διαθέτει και πλαϊνή απόληξη εξάτμισης, intercooler της Vortech και high-flow καταλύτη της Motiv Concepts.

Southern California car culture celebrated with Focus ST by PM Lifestyle

  • Ford Focus ST ready to burn rubber in road rallies with performance powertrain upgrades, including Banks Power straight-shot water-methanol injection system and iQ Man-Machine Interface
  • Nineteen-inch Rotiform wheels wrapped in GT Radial Champiro tires
  • Sparco seats with Schroth Racing five-point harness

The 2014 Ford Focus ST is ready for Targa Trophy road rallies and the Southern California sun after being given a makeover by PM Lifestyle. Working with Infinite Auto Design, the team gave this Focus ST a custom harness bar, carbon fiber exterior pieces and a custom paint job from Axalta. The additional horsepower comes from a number of modifications from Banks Power, COBB Tuning and Ford Racing. The chassis has been given a serious upgrade, with coilovers and sway bars, as well as a brake system from Wilwood. The interior reflects the serious road rally theme, with Sparco Chrono Road seats and five-point harness from Schroth Racing.

Lotus livery lives on with Green Filter USA Focus ST

  • Vintage Team Lotus livery used on Ford Focus ST is a tribute to the involvement and tradition of Ford Motor Company in motorsports
  • Builders worked to mimic details from the original livery vehicle, including exhaust outlets on the custom exhaust kit
  • Eighteen-inch wheels from American Racing Wheels wrapped in Falken tires

Ford Motor Company’s tradition with Team Lotus Racing serves as the inspiration for this Green Filter USA 2014 Ford Focus ST that is beautiful to look at on or off the track. The signature green and gold colors of Team Lotus lend a vintage look that brings back the excitement of the Lotus-Ford that won the 1965 Indianapolis 500. This Focus ST also has a high-performance air filter with custom intake and exhaust for more power. The builders took care to mimic cues from the original Team Lotus race car, like the large conical exhaust outlets. The Lotus Focus has a suspension by Ground Force that is built to provide Lotus-like handling characteristics. One of the most challenging parts of the build was matching the Team Lotus livery colors from the original car’s acrylic paint job, said Deric Dupey of Green Filter USA. Curators at The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mich., home of the original 1965 Lotus-Ford race car, worked with Green Filter USA to ensure this modern-day interpretation is authentic. “We wanted to go that far, because we know what the Lotus-Ford means in the racing industry and what it represents,” said Dupey.

Focus ST ready to fight crime with rally theme from DRAGG

  • Drag Racing Against Gangs & Graffiti creates a rally-themed vehicle for law enforcement with Ford Focus ST
  • Equipped with LED emergency lights and custom interior rifle rack
  • Powertrain has Vortech Engineering upgrades for added horsepower

This 2014 Ford Focus ST is ready to clean up the streets in a custom paint job that makes it the perfect partner for law enforcement. Drag Racing Against Gangs & Graffiti, or DRAGG, uses the automotive industry and its products to help youth focus on their future and avoid making decisions that could have a negative impact on their life. The Focus ST provided for the build serves as a way to channel that message and target a younger audience. The end result is a vehicle for law enforcement that has an eye-catching rally paint scheme and graphics. This Focus isn’t all show either, with a Borla-designed high-performance bolt-on cat-back exhaust with dual 4.5-inch polished stainless steel tips, wheels from Motegi Racing, suspension from Eibach Springs and Wilwood Engineering brakes. The law enforcement influence includes a custom push bar, interior rifle rack and LED emergency lights.

Focus ST gets vintage Gulf Racing livery in performance makeover

  • Ford Focus ST sports vintage Gulf Racing scheme with Axalta paint and custom flares by DTM Autobody
  • Nineteen-inch Forgestar wheels wrapped in Falken tires
  • High-performance modifications to the chassis like Baer brakes and a KW suspension kit

The rich history of Gulf Racing from the 1960s and 1970s inspired Universal Technical Institute to create a vintage look for a modern rally-based 2014 Ford Focus ST. The team joined forces with Neil Tjin of Tjin Edition to design the exterior look using the recognizable blue and orange livery of Gulf Racing. This Gulf Racing Focus has custom dual-side exhausts exiting from an intercooler kit by Vortech Superchargers and a high-flow catalytic converter from Motiv Concepts that gives the driver more ponies. Nineteen-inch deep-concave Forgestar wheels wrapped in Falken tires help make this Gulf Racing Focus ST a track star for the street.
