Automotive expert , Updated:
Ford has contributed a wide variety of specially modified vehicles to this year's SEMA show in Las Vegas, Nevada. SEMA, or Specialty Equipment Market Association, was founded in 1963 and the more recent annual SEMA Show has grown to one of the top specialty automotive products trade events in the world. Ford has utilized this year's show to highlight its car line-up.

2008 Ford Focus Coupe by F2 Motorsports

The F2 Motorsports 2008 Ford Focus Coupe boosts the stock 2.0 litre in-line four cylinder engine with a Brutus Stage Three Production Turbo and a Ford Racing exhaust. A Torsen differential, F2 flywheel and ACT clutch deliver this power, while a Ford Racing SVT brake kit reigns it in. Handling is improved by 18-inch Kyowa Design wheels on Toyo Proxes tires, Vortland coil overs, and F2 Brutus sway bars front and back.

The Street Scene Equipment 2008 Focus also features the Ford Racing exhaust, but in combination with a F2 cold-air intake; however, this Focus is modified for style with a body kit, and R1 Spider 18-inch wheels on Yokohama tires. Interior treatments also compliment the Polk Audio system.

The RKSport Focus ups the ante with 20-inch TSW Kyalami wheels on Toyo tires. Exterior looks have been sharpened with a body kit, while a K&N intake and Magnaflow exhaust sharpen performance. RoadWire video headrests are powered by a Boston Acoustics audio/video system with Visteon amplifiers.

The Hot Wheels Project Focus also utilizes headrest DVD screens and Ford's SYNC hands-free infotainment system. Interior trim and mood lighting, and an exterior Ford Racing lowering kit make for a life-size model car.

The 2008 Steeda Focus Club Racer uses the Steeda cold-air intake and exhaust. Steeda also built the strut tower brace, sway bars, and coil over suspension (built with Eibach). A 3D Carbon Euro Series body kit is cornered by 18-inch Steeda Open Mesh wheels on Nitto NT01 tires.

3D Carbon has also applied their body kit to a 2008 Focus sedan. 19-inch NC wheels on Pirelli tires sharpen the exterior, while the interior has been lightened up with leather trim and a Webasto 900 Series twin-ventin sunroof.

The FocusSport Street Tuner Challenge Focus has built up a stage 2 turbo with Ford Racing and Cosworth parts - kept in check by an electronic boost control and knock control system. Brembo brakes have been added up front, while passengers are held in by Daytona Competition seats.
