Ford Heads to SEMA with Fresh Batch of Prototypes

The 2016 SEMA show, taking place in Las Vegas, is opening its gates in a couple of weeks and Ford, as every major auto player in the industry, has prepared some special Focus and Fiesta prototypes to be displayed at the event.

We are looking here at some one-off and exclusive Focus RS and Fiesta ST hatchbacks, tweaking a lot of sporty design lines and increased performance under the hood, all added in partnerships with well-known aftermarket shops, like Roush Performance – mainly dealing with Ford customizations – as well as ADV.1 Wheels or Dom Tucci Designs.

The first one to reach the Ford`s stand in Las Vegas will be the Focus RS prototype, the model now getting a lot of exterior tweaks, like grey finish with orange and black concepts, along with front and side splitters from Velox Motorsports or the Finspeed`s F110 19-inch alloy wheels. According to Ford, this particular model will come with an output of around 450 horsepower.

The prototype range continues with another outstanding Focus RS, mainly updated by Roush Performance, the model adding a more aggressive look thanks to the new fascia with front splitter, vents or revised headlights. On the mechanics` side, the new RS also comes with lowered suspension and rear wing, which improves its aerodynamics.

The carmakers`s third RS to be displayed at the SEMA comes with a more racing attitude, the prototype adding more mechanics, like coilover suspension and other race-focused aerodynamics, courtesy of Ford Europe.

The last Focus to be added to the prototype lineup is the new ST, which actually includes two concepts, starting with a tuned-up model – with AVD.1 wheels or coilover suspension – with the second one featuring a more aggressive look with the fresh Konig flow forged wheels or black exterior finish, which makes it extremely imposing.

On the other hand, the Fiesta will also be present with a custom-built ST, this one looking like a real racer with lowered suspension and power upgrade, courtesy of Dom Tucci Designs. You can find out more about the prototypes in the short media gallery below.
