VMP Builds an RS Street-Fighter.
One new Ford that I have been itching to spend more time in is the potent Focus RS. With over 300HP on tap and AWD keeping that power planted the car definitely has the makings for a very fun ride. But everyone here on SVTP knows that modded is preferable to stock, and SVTP Vendor VMP Performance certainly knows how to mod. So when I first heard that they were building an RS for the 2017 SEMA show I knew I wanted to dig in and learn more about this project.

We have covered the modification of this car from day-one here on SVTP with even more to come in the future. This car has the Performance Pack, Recaros, navigation, Shaker sound system, BLIS, reverse sensors, manual transmission, etc.

Ford’s S550 2015 was a hit right out of the gate, but Mustang owners are always asking “what’s coming next?” Well, today is the day as Ford introduces the latest Mustang, which the Detroit automaker calls, the world’s best-selling sports coupe and the company’s most advanced Mustang ever. It seems to be inspired by the GT350, with a lower and sleeker nose, more naturally aspirated power with quad-exhaust, and Shelby suspension technology.
