Widebody Wanted

While I know its 'only' a lowly ST, look how effective and attractive the widebody setup is...Will be interested in pursuing this with the 2017 RS...

I hate the lack of originally here, looks like whoever did this was trying too hard to stick with rocket bunny styling here.

Its a rocket bunny kit photoshop, what did you expect?? LOL

That chop started life as Vivid Racings Focus ST, and I do agree with jobber, would be interested in wide body bolt ons...





Then there was the Gulf ST which actually uses a FRS/BRZ rocket bunny kit

That first render just doesn't look like it does justice to the potential of a widebody kit on the FocusRS. I like the Gulf body kit though. That one is nicely done. Colors are cool too.

i'm talking about the lack of originality going on, just all cookie cutter kits

I think they look fine though. I don't think that you want to over do a body kit.

I like how the concave rims look with the wide body kit. It is pretty dynamic and the contrast is cool.

to some people, even these kits can be overdoing it, fenders come out quite a bit.
with the RS making its way to more markets, maybe we'll see more renderings and even custom RS's

As you can see from all the varied version of the Focus RS above, this car takes extremely well to customization. You can make a big statement with extra stuff on the Focus or you can play it simple and have kind of a sleeper car. I would be fine with just a few changes for fun. Rims, maybe a racing stripe.

which is something that goes for just about any vehicle in this segment, and many segments above and below it

True, true. I just get really interested in all of the different things that people do to customize their cars. I like to see everything to inspire and inform my own mods.
