Today we share two of the domestic manufacturer modified street cars spotted at the 2016 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show in Las Vegas Nevada.
Ford Motor Company presented a 2017 Ford Fusion Sport Sedan known as ‘Ballistic’ customized by the folks at Webasto Thermo and Comfort North America the world leader in air conditioning, sunroofs, and convertible roofs. The Focus’ Ecoboost™ engine’s 235 horsepower output was increased through the addition of a JMS Chip Performance BoostMax boost controller and PedalMax throttle installed and recalibrated by SCT Performance. The car rides lower and corners betters after the installation of an H&R suspension kit with the braking ability improved with larger Rotora brakes on all four wheels
On the exterior, Webasto added their own natural finish Kevlar® front lip spoiler and Kevlar® side skirts along with a heat-extracting hood with the body finished in ‘Ballistic White’ metallic custom paint sprayed by MRT Performance. The Fusion rides on 20-inch Modulare Alloy wheels fitted with Toyo Proxes T1 tires. Webasto also installed an engine heater and a portable 12-volt refrigerator-freezer unit in the trunk. The whole ‘Ballistic’ package is topped by the installation of a Webasto H735-III comfort in-built sunroof with protective Venus® glass to reflect 99% of UV radiation, 80% of light and 97% of heat to protect the Katzkin custom leather and suede upholstery interior.
