DEARBORN, Michigan — The 2014 Ford Focus ST can take on different personalities with ease, as evidenced by the extreme versions of the car set for the 2013 SEMA Show.

There's the Focus ST as a crime fighter and another Focus ST that mimics a Team Lotus racecar. Another version honors the best of European and North American tuning.

Drag Racing Against Gangs & Graffiti created a rally-themed vehicle for law enforcement with the Focus ST. This version gets LED emergency lights and a custom interior rifle rack. A custom paint job "makes it the perfect partner for law enforcement," according to its creators. Other details include Wilwood engineering brakes, a suspension from Eibach Springs and wheels from Motegi Racing.

Vintage Team Lotus livery is used on a Focus ST as a tribute to Ford's longstanding involvement in motorsports. The Green Filter USA 2014 Ford Focus ST gets the signature green and gold colors of Team Lotus. Curators at The Henry Ford Museum, home of the original 1965 Lotus-Ford racecar, worked with Green Filter USA to make sure the SEMA car was authentic.

"Builders worked to mimic details from the original livery vehicle, including exhaust outlets on the custom exhaust kit," said Ford.

Another Focus ST SEMA car celebrates Southern California car culture. The 2014 Ford Focus ST by PM Lifestyle gets a custom harness bar, carbon-fiber exterior pieces and a custom paint job from Axalta. The interior reflects the road rally theme with Sparco Chrono Road seats and a five-point harness from Schroth Racing.

The 2013 Ford Focus ST by European Car Magazine gives a nod to the Focus ST's European roots. It blends a subtle paint treatment with an aggressive stance, lightweight carbon-fiber additions and an interior makeover.

The 2014 Ford Focus ST by Universal Technical Institute gets a classic Gulf Racing livery with 19-inch deep concave wheels and custom wide flares.

The M&J team formulated a partnership between Ford, Cosworth LLC and Ford Racing to boost the output in the 2013 Ford Focus ST by more than 30 percent. The car gets a Tangerine Scream finish.

Ford will roll out more SEMA cars in the coming days. The automaker said it will take the wraps off custom versions of the 2014 Ford Transit Connect on October 24 and modified versions of the Ford F-150 and Super Duty on October 31.

Edmunds says: Ford continues to dominate headlines for the 2013 SEMA Show with the promise of more to come.
