1. The 2014 Ford Focus ST is ready for Targa Trophy road rallies and the Southern California sun after being given a makeover by PM Lifestyle. Working with Infinite Auto Design, the team gave this Focus ST a custom harness bar, carbon fiber exterior pieces and a custom paint job from Axalta. The additional horsepower comes from a number of modifications from Banks Power, COBB Tuning and Ford Racing. The chassis has been given a serious upgrade, with coilovers and sway bars, as well as a brake system from Wilwood. The interior reflects the serious road rally theme, with Sparco Chrono Road seats and five-point harness from Schroth Racing.

2. Ford Motor Company’s tradition with Team Lotus Racing serves as the inspiration for this Green Filter USA 2014 Ford Focus ST that is beautiful to look at on or off the track. The signature green and gold colors of Team Lotus lend a vintage look that brings back the excitement of the Lotus-Ford that won the 1965 Indianapolis 500. This Focus ST also has a high-performance air filter with custom intake and exhaust for more power. The builders took care to mimic cues from the original Team Lotus race car, like the large conical exhaust outlets. The Lotus Focus has a suspension by Ground Force that is built to provide Lotus-like handling characteristics. One of the most challenging parts of the build was matching the Team Lotus livery colors from the original car’s acrylic paint job, said Deric Dupey of Green Filter USA. Curators at The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mich., home of the original 1965 Lotus-Ford race car, worked with Green Filter USA to ensure this modern-day interpretation is authentic. “We wanted to go that far, because we know what the Lotus-Ford means in the racing industry and what it represents,” said Dupey.

3. This 2014 Ford Focus ST is ready to clean up the streets in a custom paint job that makes it the perfect partner for law enforcement. Drag Racing Against Gangs & Graffiti, or DRAGG, uses the automotive industry and its products to help youth focus on their future and avoid making decisions that could have a negative impact on their life. The Focus ST provided for the build serves as a way to channel that message and target a younger audience. The end result is a vehicle for law enforcement that has an eye-catching rally paint scheme and graphics. This Focus isn’t all show either, with a Borla-designed high-performance bolt-on cat-back exhaust with dual 4.5-inch polished stainless steel tips, wheels from Motegi Racing, suspension from Eibach Springs and Wilwood Engineering brakes. The law enforcement influence includes a custom push bar, interior rifle rack and LED emergency lights.

4. The rich history of Gulf Racing from the 1960s and 1970s inspired Universal Technical Institute to create a vintage look for a modern rally-based 2014 Ford Focus ST. The team joined forces with Neil Tjin of Tjin Edition to design the exterior look using the recognizable blue and orange livery of Gulf Racing. This Gulf Racing Focus has custom dual-side exhausts exiting from an intercooler kit by Vortech Superchargers and a high-flow catalytic converter from Motiv Concepts that gives the driver more ponies. Nineteen-inch deep-concave Forgestar wheels wrapped in Falken tires help make this Gulf Racing Focus ST a track star for the street.
