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.

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.
