SEMA 2016: Five Focus Builds and a Feisty Fiesta

Tricked out Ford F-150s, check. Modified Mustangs, check. And now for the hot hatch crowd at this year's SEMA show, Ford Performance is rolling out a pure white Fiesta ST, two fast Focus STs, and three wild Focus RS concepts at the Las Vegas Convention Center next month.

First up and on the top of the page, we have a sporty Focus RS that boasts 450 hp and comesequipped with a 2.3-liter twin-scroll turbo kit and an EFR turbocharger. Aerodynamic front and side splitters by Velox Motorsports and a BASF Stealth Gray and Fire Orange paint job help transform and turn up the heat on this super hot hatch.

Roush Performance makes this gray with red and blue trim, track-themed Focus RS concept look like a real tire slayer. It packs 500 hp, thanks to a Ford Performance short block assembly with a Roush Performance calibration, and an enhanced cooling system. The front splitter, rear wing, hood heat extractors, grille lighting kit, custom painted side rear view mirrors, and a wrap job complete the winningpackage.

Up next is a Focus RS rally ride that looks cool and ready to rumble. This concept can handle whatever road you take it on thanks to an H&R custom RSS Performance coilover suspension. The racing livery by Stanceworks graphics wears colors from Ford's racing past and present. The Ford European RS rear diffuser, hood vents, and Triple R Composites front splitter with side skirts finish the racer look.

This2016 Ford Focus ST is splashed with BASF Hot Rod Black paint all over its bodywork by Canfield Collision & Custom. It rolls on hand-built translucent red wheels with bad to the bone "Blood and Grease" graphics. The racer's 2.0-liter inline-four "EcoBeast" powertrain receives a Mishimoto performance air intake system, a Flowmaster American Thunder exhaust, JMS BoostMAX, and custom tuning.

Here's another EcoBoost Focus ST with a 6-speed manual transmission by Cinemotive Garage that looks fairlystock, but is a bit of a sleeper with its slight external flourishes. Hidden goodies include a MR300 Performance upgrade, front mount intercooler, intercooler piping, high flow induction kit, cat back exhaust, BC Racing BR Series coilover suspension, and more.

And lastly, it's not everyday weget excited by a pure white 2016 Ford Fiesta ST 1.6-liter EcoBoost, but the slammed concept by Dom Tucci Design could be the best looking of the bunch. This little cookie works in the city or on the track and is mated with a six-speed manual transmission. It looks like a hell of a blast to drive, too. A Full-Race turbo kit, custom exhaust with Borla muffler, and Mountune limited-slip differential add to the fun.

The SEMA show runs from November 1-4 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Stay tuned for more details to come from the show floor.
