INDIANAPOLIS -- Ford Racing and tuner mountune® are teaming up to develop a line of performance parts for the Ford Focus and Fiesta.
Building on their longstanding and successful relationship in the United Kingdom, Ford Racing and mountune announced today they are teaming up to develop products for Ford Focus and Ford Fiesta customers in North America that are similar to their U.K. offerings.
The collaboration will include distribution of mountune’s European parts and upgrades, as well as co-developed products that are North America-specific.
“mountune’s performance expertise is well known in the European market,” said George Goddu, Ford Racing business manager. “With the advent of global vehicle platforms, it makes perfect sense to work with mountune in North America, just as Ford does in the U.K.
“This is an example of One Ford bringing our enthusiast customers the best performance parts from Europe to the United States,” he added.
Ken Anderson, president of mountune USA, said, “By working together, we can deliver the highest quality products in less time. The Ford Racing dealer network gives us the benefit of first-rate marketing and customer support.”
The mountune/Ford Racing product line will consist of power enhancement and chassis components that will be available to all Ford Racing distributors. The new product line will be supported by the industry-leading Ford Racing technical hotline, with select parts covered by a Ford Racing vehicle warranty when dealer-installed.
Enthusiasts can expect to see availability of mountune/Ford Racing performance parts in the first quarter of 2014.
