With the SEMA show just round the corner, Ford has decided to hit us with eight custom spec Fiesta concepts. To give us an idea as to what can be achieved with the little hatch, one concept will display an iPad in the centre console, much like the iPad connectivity from BMW that we recently reported on. Another special will demonstrate a list of suspension upgrades including springs, shocks and strut-braces.
But the one that has caught our eye is the 345bhp Ford Racing-development model. Taking centre stage at the las Vegas Convention Centre, the high performance model pushes out it’s ludicrous horsepower, from its bored out 2.0-litre Ecoboost engine. With a capacity of 2.3-litres this hot-hatch benefits from, twin centre mounted exhausts, large Brembo brakes and high quality Ohlins suspension components.
Style wise a large rear wing adorns the rear hatch matched by a lower front splitter and 17-inch alloys.
