A division of Carroll Shelby International recently unveiled the tuned Focus ST at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The new Focus ST has laid the perfect platform for the rebirth of the front wheel driven turbocharged four cylinder Shelby. The latest ‘pocket-rocket’ was to be built by the iconic Shelby himself – who unfortunately passed away before completing the project.

The Shelby Focus ST was designed in the Shelby skunkworks and tested extensively at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The front wheel driven Shelby Focus ST is a driver-focused performance hatchback.

New Ford Racing suspension lowers the car while the wheels and tires improve grip and traction. The bigger Shelby spec brakes improves the stopping power while the unique Shelby/Borla exhaust provides a worth soundtrack.

Inside, the car has a bespoke Shelby branded interior, including a Shelby shifter and Shelby CSM badging. Users can distinguish the Shelby from stock Focus ST’s with functional hood vents, hydro-carbon front and rear grille inserts, Shelby lettering and rear Hydro-carbon spoiler.

Three visual graphics packages are offered - Shelby stripes, Shelby checkered flag splash or competition graphics. Under the hood, Shelby American adds stylish hydro-carbon components and is developing an optional performance tune expected to significantly increase horsepower.

The 2013 Shelby Focus ST post-title package begins at $14,995 not including the Ford Focus ST and will be limited to 500 per model year.
