Cobb Tuning Ford Focus ST Tanner Foust EditionSaturday, March 16, 2013 7:07 by Arman Barari
Thanks to his incredible skills, and of course his TV shows, drift boy Tanner Foust has established himself as a celebrity in the automotive world. The X Games champ and host of shows like Supercars and Top Gear USA is now getting his own version of the Ford Focus ST in a joint project between Ford and Cobb Tuning.
This is an opportunity for Cobb to showcase their performance parts for the Focus ST, and because it’s Tanner Foust, the modifications are more than just skin deep. They have fitted the ST with a new ECU software, sport exhausts, optimized intercoolers and air intakes. All these changes result in just 50 more horsepower, for a total 300.
Visually, Tanner Foust’s Focus ST features a mesh grille and an adjustable air splitter at the front, side skirts, new wheels with red brake calipers, and some graphics for its cool gunmetal matte finish.
Inside the cabin Alcantara is used to style the steering wheel, the seats and floor mats. No word on pricing, but it is probably a custom package, meaning you can choose which parts you want installed on your Focus.
