Customized Ford Fiestas Debut at SEMA
For those of you who are not in-the-know, SEMA is the Holy Grail of all things modified. Hundreds of thousands of enthusiasts from around the globe flock to Las Vegas every year in search of the latest and greatest trends in the realm of aftermarket modification. Taking center stage this year at the Ford Motor showcase, will be the compact and adorable Fiesta.
Being cute and adorable also means it’s a favorite to modify and is the perfect platform for customers and aftermarket companies looking to express themselves in a fun, unique way. Owners have already begun customizing their Fiestas with graphics and accessories available through Ford, and SEMA takes that customization to the next level. Various Tuners have been working their magic on the little runabout for the past few weeks and will be unveiling them at this year’s SEMA show during November 2nd-5th.

Customization is something already familiar to US Fiesta owners. Ford Custom Accessories offers almost anything an owner would need to put a creative touch on Fiesta or give the car even more functionality. Accessory options include exterior or interior design items such as an illuminated gear indicator shift knob and rear spoiler and even a kayak carrier to haul outdoor gear. Customers also can order a body-side tattoo, or choose from one of 18 available graphics to put their own mark on their Fiesta. You can bet your bottom dollar that these guys didn’t stop there! Check out renditions of all 8 Project cars below.
2011 Ford Fiesta by Ford Racing
Ford Racing Performance Parts is putting its own spin on a Fiesta at SEMA, outfitting a concept Fiesta in a way that is sure to get the hearts of high-performance enthusiasts pumping. The Fiesta will have a production-based 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine, enlarged to 2.3 liters to churn out a skull-bashing 350 horsepower.
“The goal of our 350-horsepower Fiesta is really twofold – first to reinforce Fiesta’s fun-to-drive nature with an extreme version that captures the attention of the influential enthusiast, and second, to introduce the Ford Racing/EcoBoost connection in a way that’s unexpected and outrageous,” said Mickey Matus, Ford Racing Performance group marketing manager."
