The Tanner Foust Ford Focus ST

The Ford Focus ST to be well represented at SEMA 2012

Ford Motor Company has just issued a new group of artwork designed to preview the cars that will fill their booth at the 2012 SEMA Show with the latest batch focusing on the new high performance Ford Focus ST – including unique renditions of the sporty 5-door hatch from names like Cosworth, Steeda, Galpin Auto Sports and Tanner Foust.

The Ford Focus ST arrives in the US after similar models have been offered overseas for years with great success so with the current growing interest in sporty 5-door models – Ford will use their new EcoBoost’d Focus ST to show the factory performance potential of Ford products other than the mighty Mustang. Last year, the sprawling indoor Ford SEMA Show display offered a look at how the standard Focus (SE, SEL) could be transformed into more unique, sporty vehicles but ford 2012, the tuners started with the far more powerful Focus ST. All of these cars are powered by the 2.0L EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine and a six speed manual transmission; sending 252 horsepower and 270lb-ft of torque to the front wheels.

Ford released five drawings on Facebook earlier today, each offering a look at one of the Focus ST hatchbacks that will be helping to fill the Motor Company’s SEMA Show display. Much like the Fusion preview, only a handful of information was offered for each of the vehicles but between the bits of information and what we can see in the images – we have a good idea of what to expect when the 2012 SEMA Show opens.

First up, Bojix Design has put together a bright orange Ford Focus ST with carbon fiber accents on the hood and roof along with a body kit that appears to add side sills, and an aggressive lower front fascia. This Focus ST also includes unique headlights, smoked tail lights, a coilover suspension package and black and orange wheels tucked over a big brake package featuring large calipers along with slotted and drilled brake rotors.
