Even though the Fiesta was last year’s news, Ford handed out a trio of them to be customized and shown off at this year’s SEMA Show. None of the projects were crazy exotic, but really show off what the Fiesta can achieve when done with the right modifications.

The Candy Purple Fiesta is a creation from M2-Motoring, featuring upgrades in all departments of the vehicle’s performance. Under the hood is an Injen Technology cold air intake system, DC Sports cat back exhaust, Mishimoto oil coolers and Champion lubricants. For suspension, a set of coilovers came from Megan Racing while brakes from Wilwood gives the Fiesta proper stopping power. On the outside, APR Performance chipped in with a carbon fiber splitter, while the rear gets a roof spoiler from 3dCarbon. The stereo has also been upgraded using products from Jensen and Audiovox.

Next up is a Fiesta creation from Gold Coast Automotive featuring a four-piece body kit from 3dCarbon while Gold Coast further accented the body with its fender flare kit. Under the hood, Jackson Racing enhanced the performance of the Fiesta with a Rotrex intercooled supercharger and Performance Electronics “Edge” stand-alone ECU. H&R coilovers and Wilwood brakes round off the chassis upgrades while the Fiesta sits on a set of 17×7-inch Kyowa Racing 206 wheels.

Aaron Vaccar’s Signature Series Fiesta features a BASF Custom Bright Silver Matte Metallic paint finish while custom body kit by Canfield offers subtle changes to the exterior. 3dCarbon’s upper roof spoiler can also be found on this Fiesta, along with a set of carbon fiber mirrors from APR. Coilovers are also from Megan Racing, along with the Wilwood brakes for chassis upgrades. Under the hood, Vaccar turned to Weapon-R for their air intake, oil catch tank and coolant overflow tank. The Fiesta rocks a set of 17-inch Advanti Racing V3 Vago wheels wrapped with 205/40/17 Toyo Proxes 4 rubber.
