2012 Ford Fiesta

At this year's SEMA show in Las Vegas, many compact cars were heavily modified to offer more power, enhanced styling or upgraded interiors. That's especially true with Ford, who collaborated with aftermarket tuners to create several upgraded versions of its compact Focus, and three highly tuned examples of the even smaller Fiesta.

Among Fiestas, tuner M2 Motoring produced the most striking aftermarket model. Featuring a custom purple finish by Status Motorsports, the M2 Motoring Fiesta includes an Injen cold-air intake, a DC Sports cat-back exhaust, and brake and suspension upgrades from Wilwood and Megan Racing. Other upgrades include a 3dCarbon body kit, a Jensen Mobile sound system and Audiovox flip-down touchscreen monitors.

Tuner Gold Coast Automotive also tossed its hat in the Fiesta ring, creating a Fiesta SE hatchback built specifically for high-performance driving. In addition to a race-inspired SoCal SignWorx graphic wrap and its own fender flare kit, Gold Coast's Fiesta includes a Jackson Racing supercharger, a Wilwood brake system and Hankook racing tires, along with exterior modifications ranging from an APR Performance rear wing to a custom front splitter.

Last up among tuned Fiestas is a silver matte-finished hatchback designed by tuner Aaron Vaccar. Featuring a Weapon R air intake, Bride Vios III racing bucket seats, Wilwood Dynapro six-piston brakes and 17-inch Advanti racing wheels, the Aaron Vaccar Signature Series Fiesta is certainly right at home in hard driving. But the modified hatch also includes a series of cosmetic upgrades ranging from Portage Trim red leather upholstery to stunning aftermarket wheels and MB Quart Onyx Series speakers designed to improve sound quality, meaning the upgraded Fiesta is also more than capable of a quiet Sunday cruise.

While the Focus was more popular than the Fiesta among tuners at this year's SEMA show, we expect both displays will help win the hearts - and wallets - of young buyers, impressed by the aftermarket potential of Ford's head-turning display.
