SEMA 2011: Ford Announces a Trio of Custom Fiesta Hatchbacks

Ford’s Fiesta subcompact is pretty stylish—in five-door guise, anyway; the sedan is seriously frumpy—which makes it a decent tableau for customization. Ford is bringing three worked-over examples to next week’s SEMA show in Las Vegas, each prepped by a different tuning outfit. (Truthfully, we’re a little sad that none of them are a production version of the turbocharged Fiesta ST concept.) Read on for a rundown on all the baubles and bolt-ons, and be sure to check back in a few days for photos of the Fiestas straight from the show floor.

2011 Fiesta by M2-Motoring

M2-Motoring is more of a parts wholesaler than a tuning shop, but the company does sell its own line of products with a heavy focus on individualized customization. M2’s SEMA car (pictured at the top of this post) toes the line between looking like a Mansory nightmare and an ad for grape drink. The hood, outer fascia inserts, front splitter, side mirrors, and upper roof spoiler are rendered in carbon. The Fiesta’s sheetmetal and wheel lips are finished in a bright “Candy Purple” color. The car also is fitted with some performance enhancers. M2 added a DC Sports cat-back exhaust, an Injen cold-air intake, a Megan Racing coil-over suspension, and Wilwood brakes. No SEMA car is complete without a few video monitors, a new sound system, and a bitchin’ fuel door, so the M2 Fiesta has all three.

2011 Fiesta by Gold Coast Automotive

Fiesta ST? What Fiesta ST? Gold Coast Automotive’s supercharged Fiesta is easily the most performance-oriented of Ford’s SEMA Fiestas, so it applies some salve to our ST-sized wound. Since the Fiesta ST is still just a concept, Gold Coast’s offering looks like a solid blueprint for Fiesta owners with a speed itch. What began as a base Fiesta SE hatchback was overhauled with Wilwood brakes, Hankook racing tires, and a Jackson Racing blower. Gold Coast added a fender-flare kit and front splitter, along with a 3dCarbon body kit and a Matchbox-style graphics package.

2011 Fiesta by Aaron Vaccar Signature Series

If the M2 Fiesta is a bit too showy, or the Gold Coast car too racy (is there such a thing?), then the Aaron Vaccar Fiesta is the just-right porridge in Ford’s fairy-tale lineup of SEMA Fiestas. The Vaccar Fiesta won’t blow you away with extra speed—its only go-faster upgrade is a Weapon-R air intake—but we think it’s the best-looking by far of the three. The AV car wears an alluring coat of bright silver matte metallic paint and rides on black 17-inch wheels that have a thin red accent stripe along their rim. Wilwood brakes with beefy six-piston calipers hide behind the rollers. The interior features Bride racing seats and red leather upholstery. Our favorite AV Fiesta detail? The side mirrors, which look like they were pulled straight off of an F1 car.
