The official European tuning partner of Ford, mountune, will be making its way to American with a new facility in Southern California.
The U.S.-based facility will act as a distribution center for the company’s high performance and racing components as well as acting as a facility that’s capable of supporting expanded race and rally programs. Heading up the operation in America will be Ken Anderson, who has an impressive track record with Cosworth.
For years, Americans have missed out on the high-performance ST and RS variants of various Ford vehicles, but now that the brand is focusing on a global one car strategy, enthusiasts in the U.S. will not only be able to enjoy the cars, but also the performance products developed by mountune.
With over 30 years of racing heritage, mountune has had a lot of success in the Global Rallycross Championship series with the Ford Fiesta. Ford will also be working with mountune in the U.S. to offer selected products that will benefit from a Ford Racing warranty when installed by a Ford dealership.
“As Ford”s official tuning partner in Europe, combined with an impressive array of market-leading parts already under our belt, nobody is better positioned to bring engineered expertise in upgrading and tuning Fiesta, Focus and other Ford platforms to the enthusiasts of the USA”, says David Moore, Marketing Manager, mountune.
