4. Ford Focus TrackSTer


Modified almost entirely with parts available through Ford Racing, this specially-tuned Focus ST would probably be more at home during the SEMA show than in Chicago. Regardless of that, it’s hard not to be impressed by the fact that such an imposing car can come from a production Ford compact.

Speaking on the show sidelines, Block told AutoGuide that the car was barely built in time to be featured during the show. Unfortunately, that means it hasn’t gone for dyno testing yet, so horsepower figures are still a mystery.

Still, with more components under the hood changed than stock, it’s easy to assume the Focus ST’s 252 hp and 270 lb-ft or torque will be boosted considerably. THose modifications include a new exhaust, intercooler, ecu, downpipe and much more.
