Ford Euro tuning partner Mountune sets up shop in USThu, 08 Aug 2013 00:00:00 -0700
U.K.-based Ford tuner Mountune is opening up a satellite location in California. The company is not well known on this side of the Atlantic, but across the pond it enjoys the status of being Ford's official European tuning partner. Mountune will be offering high-performance racing components for a number of Ford vehicles in the states, and we're excited to see what they'll be able to do with the rabid Ford Focus ST and Fiesta ST models.
Mountune's operation in SoCal will reportedly include engine building operations, a rolling road and machine room facilities. The location will also serve as a distribution point for the company's Asian markets.
The Ford Focus ST is finally available in the US market, and is ready for even more go-faster parts.
David Moore, marketing manager for Mountune, said, “As Ford's official tuning partner in Europe, combined with an impressive array of market-leading parts already under our belt, nobody is better positioned to bring engineered expertise in upgrading and tuning Fiesta, Focus and other Ford platforms to the enthusiasts of the USA.”
Mountune's racing heritage and experience goes back 30 years, and they've worked on some of the most popular European Fords. Mountune will be collaborating with Ford Racing, and many of their performance mods will be offered with a Ford Racing warranty when installed through the Ford dealer network.
