While the U.S. version of the 2011 Ford Fiesta just made its debut in Los Angeles, aftermarket tuners have been getting their hands dirty customizing the new compact for quite some time now in order to make it to the show. It only makes sense that the first group to offer an upgrade package for the new party car is the blue oval’s in house tuner Ford Racing in cooperation with the Mustang tuners from Steeda Autosports.
First Ford Racing and Steeda wanted to uncork the little 1.6 Liter Ti-VCT four cylinder and let it breathe a little easier with a cold air intake from Steeda and a cat-back system that was made by Borla in cooperation with Ford Racing. In order to keep the Fiesta firmly planted at all four corners, Steeda and Ford Racing upgraded the factory suspension to give the compact track inspired handling. Hiding behind the Ford Racing multi spoke Euro wheels is one off Brembo big brake kit mounted front and rear to keep the driver in full control when tackling chicanes and tight hairpin turns. Ford Racing and Steeda Autosports have truly created a high performance hatchback using a few straightforward simple upgrades that when put together go a long way towards enhancing the Fiesta.
