Those who have driven one know that the Ford Focus ST induces smiles left and right. Looking to personalize the original formula with some Southern California car culture and a road rally theme, the folks over at PM Lifestyle are bringing this tuned Focus ST to SEMA 2013.
Changes to the exterior, courtesy of Infinite Auto Design, include a custom paint job from Axalta, a custom harness bar, and several carbon fiber exterior pieces throughout. Performance-oriented powertrain upgrades to the EcoBoost 2.0 liter turbo engine consist of several modifications from Banks Power, COBB Tuning, and Ford Racing, including a Banks Power straight-shot water-methanol injection system and iQ Man-Machine Interface.
The chassis hasn’t gone untouched, with coilers and sway bars, along with a brake system from Wilwood. The car rides on 19-inch Rotiform wheels wrapped in GT Radio Champiro tires. The ST’s road rally theme continues to the interior, with Sparco Chrono road seats plus five-pont harness from Schroth Racing.
