The Ford Focus ST is usually turned into a road racer , so it was a bit of a pleasant surprise to see the Focus receive a rally -themed modification, but in such a way that the final product classifies it as a law enforcement vehicle.
Confusing as that may sound, all you need to do is take one look at what Drag Racing Against Gangs & Graffiti (DRAGG) did to the Focus ST to understand why the Focus ST looks as awesome as it does.
The sick custom paint job done on this SEMA -bound Focus ST resembles that of the white and black colors of an actual police cruiser . However, DRAGG takes it up a new level with the addition of LED emergency lights, a custom interior rifle rack and a custom push bar. Taken all together, those new elements effectively turned the Focus ST into a bonafide police rig.
The program fits right in with DRAGG’s mission of helping the youth focus on their future and avoid making decisions that could have a negative impact on their life.
But more than just the aesthetics and law enforcement additions, the DRAGG-tuned Focus ST also comes with a plethora of performance upgrades, highlighted by a Vortech turbocharger and complemented by a high-performance, bolt-on, cat-back exhaust with dual, 4.5-inch, polished stainless-steel tips from Borla, wheels from Motegi Racing, suspension from Eibach Springs and brakes from Wilwood Engineering.
While no performance figures were released, we have a feeling that we should see an addition of about 50 to 75 horsepower to the stock 252 horsepower and a jump from 270 pound-feet to around 365 pound-feet of torque.

The Ford Focus ST is a true performer on four wheels, capable of incredible power out of its drivetrain to go with a design language that really sets it apart from other Focus variants. The deep body kit, redesigned bumpers and fascias, a big wheel package, a vented rear spoiler and the rear exhaust pipe are a big part of the sports hatch’s design. But none are more distinctive than the ST-exclusive nose design that sets the performance model apart from base five-door and sedan Focus models.
Under its hood, the Focus ST is powered by a 2.0-liter, turbocharged engine that delivers 252 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, allowing the sports hatch to hit 60 mph in 5.9 seconds to go with a top speed of 155 mph.
