Hat tip to our pal Michael Ma for giving us the scoop on his latest project build for Ford. The M2-Motoring Ford Fiesta ST project is a combination of ideas and influence ranging from fashion to trends to motorsports.
Ma wanted to build an eye-catching SEMA project with such a compact platform. The Tiffany & Co inspired paint job to the full polished Rotiform NUE's along with the custom rally inspired fender flares all combine to achieve that combination.
For the engine, a cold air intake and catback exhaust from Injen is used to help the car breath more while a Cobb Accessport assists in tuning, and increasing the boost pressure.
To help create a firmer and improved ride, ST suspension coilovers are used along with Whiteline sway bars. Falken RT615 tires along with Wilwood brakes combine to help keep the Fiesta ST planted to the ground and able to stop from the added power.
For the interior clean and simple upgrades were massaged into the build. The pillars and headliner are wrapped in a soft dark gray suede to complement the factory color of the seats and a white shift knob by Cobb. The factory seats are OEM Recaros and do not need to be changed as they are a firm fit for track days.
More pics of the fresh Fiesta ST to come so stay tuned.
