Ford Focus ST makes presence known with five custom cars in Vegas
 
http://www.blogcdn.com/www.autoblog....a-2012-opt.jpg

These are the funky quintet of five custom Ford Focus STs that were teased not long ago, built by Tanner Foust Racing, Bojix, M&J Enterprises, Galpin Auto Sports and Steeda Autosports.

Tanner went for the weekday commuter turned weekend track and canyon star (top); Bojix headed for "European design cues," which apparently means orange paint and big brakes (above, left); M&J called Cosworth, upped the power and braced the suspension, then draped the package in the marvelously named Tangerine Scream (above, right); the Galpins we know so well went daily-rally-car with a roof scoop, methanol injection and a WRC exterior aesthetic (below, left); and Steeda went for quiet yet very serious business with its G-Trac suspension and 19-inch wheels (below, right).

You can check each Focus ST out in the high-res gallery above, and you'll find a few more details on each in the press release below.Continue reading Ford Focus ST makes presence known with five custom cars in Vegas

I've seen a bunch more picstures of the Cosworth one, not bad! But the Tanner one could go without those silly graphics....would look better 10-fold just one solid color IMO!

Are those 5.0 Mustang extractor vents on the first two? Same hood on both of them?

Tanner looks great, I'm glad they picked this concept.

Ewwww @ the flat black roof and hood. That shit is just so cliche' nowadays. Now a whole car painted flat black is useful because of it's radar absorbing capabilities, but I'm not seeing that here. I'm seeing some weak attempts at graphic paint jobs. The powder blue with white/gray stripe seems better, but I don't know about the bright racing yellow flags and wheels. Sure Mercedes GT racer- ok, but Ford Focus tuner- why? Mercedes didn't do the wheels like that either---why? The answer is obvious. White, black, or shiny metal would've probably served the image better.

^ same, really like the Steeda. The Tanner one I wouldnt mind driving.

Keep in mind ... The Steeda one has the ability to be driven right of the SEMA floor ... pretty impressive.

Lot of the show cars at SEMA are just that ... show cars.

Best Regards,
TJ
