2012 SEMA: Ford Focus by Galpin Auto Sports [Live Photos]
text size: A- A+
The theme chosen for the show car was clearly rally inspired. Taking the 2.0-liter EcoBoost, GAS added performance parts like a Borla cat-back exhaust, a K&N sports air filter, Steeda cold air induction kit, methanol injection system as well as an engine re-tune.
But it’s the eye-cathing exterior that makes this a cool ST. Galpin fitted aggressive body kit, complete with a large carbon fiber rear wing, roof scoop, and various ground effects components. The Focus chassis sits lower thanks to H&R coilover suspension. Instead of the stock wheels, they installed Motegi MR119 18-inch rally-style wheels and Cooper Zeon tires. The brakes have also been upgraded to 14-inch Brembo discs with four-piston calipers and body stiffeners were added.
