The Blue Oval is going to present a number of customisation proposals for the new Ford Fiesta at this year's SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show, which will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center between November 2 and 5.

As you can imagine the goal is to present that Ford Custom Accessories offers a wide range of options for both the interior and exterior while Ford Racing Performance will showcase a tuned fiesta pumping 350 HP from a 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine that has been enlarged to 2.3-litres.

Some of the project vehicles based on the 2011 Ford Fiesta that will be brought to SEMA include custom creations developed by Ford Vehicle Personalization, Universal Technical Institute, 3dCarbon, L&G Enterprises, H&R Springs, Steeda Autosports and FSWerks.

Dearborn, Mich., Oct. 7, 2010 – People love to modify small cars, so it’s no surprise that consumers and aftermarket companies are eager to get their hands on Ford’s hot-selling Fiesta, set to debut at this year’s SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show in Las Vegas Nov. 2-5.

“The Fiesta is one of those vehicles that resonates with everybody – especially with the younger market. Whatever you’re into, it works,” said Melvin Betancourt, Ford specialty design manager. “It lends itself to a lot of different themes. It’s a perfect fit for the aftermarket and for customers who want to express their personality.”

“SEMA offers the perfect opportunity to showcase all the different ways the personalities of the Fiesta can be expressed,” said Sam De La Garza, Fiesta brand manager.

“It really shows how Fiesta can be accessorized and how this canvas can be altered to meet many different customer wants and desires,” De La Garza said. “SEMA represents a special opportunity, because we can show off unique designs that other companies have created. It’s not just Ford coming to the table. It’s other companies interpreting what Fiesta is, and bringing their own style to the Fiesta launch.”

Customization is something already familiar to Fiesta owners. Ford Custom Accessories offers almost anything an owner would need to put a creative touch on Fiesta or give the car even more functionality. Accessory options include exterior or interior design items such as an illuminated gear indicator shift knob and rear spoiler, even a kayak carrier to haul outdoor gear. Customers also can order a body-side tattoo, or choose from one of 18 available graphics to put their own mark on Fiesta.

“Small cars are unique in that people love to modify them, whether it’s the exterior, interior, or even performance parts,” De La Garza said.

Ford Racing Performance Parts is putting its own spin on a Fiesta at SEMA, outfitting a concept Fiesta in a way that is sure to get the hearts of high-performance enthusiasts pumping. The Fiesta will have a production-based 2.0-liter EcoBoost™ engine, enlarged to 2.3 liters to pump out 350 horsepower.

“The goal of our 350-horsepower Fiesta is really twofold – first to reinforce Fiesta’s fun-to-drive nature with an extreme version that captures the attention of the influential enthusiast, and second, to introduce the Ford Racing/EcoBoost connection in a way that’s unexpected and outrageous,” said Mickey Matus, Ford Racing Performance group marketing manager. “In both cases, we’re targeting the discriminating performance enthusiast with our message. After all, they are the people others rely on for automotive expertise and recommendations.”
The car comes equipped with several Ford Racing Performance Parts options that are currently available at www.fordracingparts.com. A short-throw shifter offers more precise shifting, while a Ford Racing exhaust gives off a deeper, throatier exhaust note. Also available are 17-inch wheels that are cast-aluminum and painted in charcoal gray.

Additionally, the car features Brembo brakes that offer the ultimate in stopping power, and Ohlins dual-flow valve dampers that deliver comfort and agility.

Ford Racing’s Fiesta will arrive in all-blue, pristine condition, and will be painted by a renowned artist during the show with the intention of auctioning the car in the future to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund (JDRF).
