Article by Christian Andrei, on October 28, 2013

Ford will be introducing 57 vehicles at the 2013 SEMA Show, including several versions of the 2014 Ford Fusion. The latest custom vehicles to be presented are the 2014 Ford Fusion from Full-Race Motorsports and the 2014 Ford Fusion Titanium from DSO Eyewear. Full-Race Motorsports boosted the output of the standard 240-horsepower four-cylinder power plant on the 2014 Fusion SE sedan to an amazing 400 hp by replacing the stock turbocharger with a bigger one from Borg Warner.

It also put in a cat-back exhaust and cold-air intake system. The performance specialists based in Phoenix also tweaked the Fusion to get bigger brakes, 21-inch wheels, lower suspension and custom grille and body panels.

It received custom leather seats by Katzkin and a 7-inch Android-based touchscreen tablet was placed in the dash. What DSO Eyewear did with 2014 Ford Fusion Titanium edition was very different. It now looks like "a black tie-ready Fusion with gold bling,” according to Ford. This tuxedo-black sedan with gold trim benefited from several improvements to its powertrain. It is equipped with a Banks Power straight-shot water-methanol injection system and an iQ Man Machine Interface.

It can’t be denied that the focus of the custom work was looks and luxury. DSO Eyewear got a range-topping Fusion Titanium and applied special rich black paint with gold-painted accents from BASF. It also gave it some custom 21-inch wheels from Niche Road Wheels covered with Pirelli P Zero Nero tires.

It got a performance-oriented grille treatment and a sleek 3dCarbon body kit. The DSO Eyewear Fusion Titanium edition also received custom perforated leather seat inserts and additional BASF gold accents. It boasts of a Rockford Fosgate audio system, which includes a 600-watt amp, front and rear full-range speakers and two 10-inch subwoofers.
