Ford had quite a pair of showings at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show. First was the fifteen52 Project ST Focus TrackSTer. This happens to be one of three Focus STs built as part of the Project ST campaign. Built in partnership with Ford, fifteen52, and Ken Block, the TrackSTer shows what a hardcore enthusiast model could be. The TrackSTer features a heavily modified engine, limited-slip differential, new exhaust system, larger brakes, and a number of other changes. The other showing was the new Fiesta ST Global RallyCross Race Car. This vehicle is part of a renewed effort from Ford to become more involved in Global RallyCross which is becoming more popular in the U.S. This particular car will be campaigned by Tanner Foust and Brian Deegan. Built by Swedish tuner OlsbergsMSE, Fiesta ST Global RallyCross Race Car comes with 600 horsepower and all-wheel drive. Autobytel’s Benjamin Hunting gives you the rundown on these two fast Fords.
