Fiesta ST gets lots of attention at SEMA

Ford is showing off several customized Fiesta automobiles at the SEMA show in Las Vegas. The Fiesta seen in the picture customize by Ice Nine Group and is designed to resemble a rally car. The car features a custom body kit and custom paint along with custom wheels and lots more.

As part of a tie up with the people behind the Forza Motorsport 5 video game, MRT created a custom Fiesta ST for the show. The car gets a special paint job along with a modified suspension with H&R coilover shocks, upgraded brakes, and a new exhaust. It also has a intercooler from COBB Tuning.

COBB Tuning also unveiled a cool Fiesta St in association with Tanner Faust Racing. It is heavily modified and has an interesting pixelated looking paint scheme. The Fiesta St is a nice platform for modifications and performance.

Sep 2 2014 7:53am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Government/Legal, Police/Emergency, Read This Back in college, I was the house and risk manager for my fraternity. As you can imagine, this was a stressful job, as I was forced to monitor not only the many idiotic whims of my brothers, but the potential impact those ideas had on our house. My least-fond memory of those hazy years involved a brother who drove a retired police cruiser. He desperately wanted to be a cop and took to ...

Sep 1 2014 3:36pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Look out, Google: Enough General Motors employees wanted to arrive at meetings covered in sweat that the company has introduced a bike-sharing program. Okay, a desire for damp, winded employees probably had less to do with GM’s decision than the rising popularity of active-workplace programs, but still—up here in Michigan, it’s pretty warm outside.
