SEMA may be in in the past, but Ford’s endless parade of customized 2012 Focus models has yet to stop. In fact, three tricked-out cars managed to work their way to Los Angeles, where they’re being shown off on the automaker’s display stand.
It isn’t unusual that Ford let its own in-house tuning parts and accessories wing — Ford Vehicle Personalization — take a stab at modifying its new global compact car. After all, if Ford can create, produce, and sell gotta-have accessories for it’s own car, the automaker and its dealer network can only stand to benefit. The FVP Focus treatment largely sticks to cosmetics — the white car receives splashes of Carribean Blue paint on its wheels, grille, and door trim, allowing the car to reportedly “mimic current trends seen in fashion.” Other accessories include a roof spoiler, graphics package, and silver accents on the side-view mirrors.
2012 Focus by FSWerks
Unlike Ford’s customized Focus, tuning house FSWerks sought to add a little extra in the performance department. Ride height has been lowered by three inches, while the engine receives a cold air intake, and a high-flow stainless steel exhaust system. FSWerks’ Focus also receives a retina-melting orange paint job, topped off by custom side skirts, mirrors, and 19-inch wheels treated to a gold finish.
2012 Focus by 3dCarbon
Diamonds are purportedly forever, but car customization doesn’t have to be. Although 3dCarbon’s Focus rocks a matte black exterior finish, it isn’t actually paint. Instead, the hue is applied via a removable foil wrap. 3dCarbon’s car also receives red accents on the hood, door trim, side-view mirrors, and the 20-inch black wheels.
