The boys over at Galpin Auto Sports have made a name for themselves by creating some very over-the-top vehicles, and they've applied some of their handywork to a Ford Fusion we found at Ford's SEMA display that was particularly impressive. The 3.0-liter V6 has been pumped up to 400 horsepower via a turbocharger system and custom headers, which is always nice. The suspension, meanwhile, has been upgraded with H&R coilovers and Steeda Autosports front and rear sway bars. A 3d Carbon body kit is also accented with M&M Auto Arts Candy Orange racing stripes and custom black paint as well as a carbon fiber front splitter and rear wing. We also dig the new vented hood and the headlight covers that sculpt the Fusion's gaze into a mean scowl. Inside is a custom leather interior by Katzkin, a suede steering wheel and a custom 6-point roll cage. Yes, it's still a Fusion, but it's one seriously bad ass Fusion.

      Pretty nice, i could of done without the ricer graphics on the side though.
      I agree, ford should of did an svt fusion with the mazdaspeed6 engine.

      It's still a focus, I would be caught dead in it
        • 7 Years Ago
        Umm...I'm pretty sure it's a Fusion, not a Focus.

        Way to read...

        Ok pal, you're right. I made a typo. What I should have wrote was "It's still a FORD, I would be caught dead in it." YOU KNOW WHAT I MEANT!

      Lose the wing, crazy paint and wheels, and that is a nice Fusion. Not sure if it would sell, but nice none the less.

      that is the hottest Fusion I've ever seen. Like Freestyle above me, I also like the 3-bar painted. That should be an option on the standard models. What really makes that front an eye-catcher, though, is the lower half.

      I think this a great approach by Ford with it's Galpin Auto Sports-Ford Fusion. Interesting approach...Perhaps, this is a correct step in the right direction (return to profitability for Ford Motor Company...) It will be interesting to see what's next in the furtue for Ford Motor Company.

      I think today's vehicle consumers like seeing attractive automotive designs along with good performance package that is safe/fun to drive on today's roads. I believe by matching these qualities... perhaps, the big three may be able to gain consumer confidence once again...very interesting approach by Ford Motor Company.

      Ditch the stripes and the wing. It looks like a cross between a ricer and the COT. Looks like hell, aside from the black taillights blending into the body.

      One of the nicest looking Fusions I've seen. The painted 3-bar does look good done like this.

      Is it still Fail-Wheel-Drive?
        • 7 Years Ago
        Yep it is bad ass. The three bar grill looks way better painted than chrome
      • 7 Years Ago
      i actually like the chrome on the front of the navigator. it's the slabs of chrome on the sides and the ugly new rear lights that I hate
      • 7 Years Ago
      I think mentioning that the grill is nicer painted than in chrome goes without saying IMO.
      Ford must ask old ladies what they like, chrome grilles are long out of style and it's also why the navigator looks like ghetto crap, as if they let pimp my ride design it.
      Same goes for nissan trucks.
      Chrome belongs on rims and exhaust only.
      Putting it on anything else draws attention to things that should be hidden.

      Nice. I like the way the tailights blend in with the paint. Orange looks good also...
      • 7 Years Ago
