Ford shows off SEMA-bound Fusion specials

Alright, my own personal opinion. These are awful.
The White one looks like everything from MB AMG
Neon Green? This is a large sedan, not a Fiesta. 

The copper one looks nice, then they had to throw on the neon green brake calipers and mess it up. 

With the SEMA Show kicking off later this month, some automakers have already started showing off their Vegas-bound show cars, and now Ford is getting into the mix with a quartet of tricked-out 2013 Ford Fusion concepts. Ford will be unveiling "dozens" of cars at SEMA, but these custom Fusions give a glimpse of the tuning/styling potential of Ford's new midsize sedan.

While show cars at SEMA are generally flashy and over the top, the 2013 Fusion by Tjin Edition is a relatively subtle car. In the past, Tjin Edition Fords have also included the Explorer and Mustang GT, but the Tjin Edition Fusion has been upgraded with a custom paint job that actually makes beige look good to go with 21-inch wheels and new headlights and fog lights featuring LED accents. To give the car more performance, this Fusion also received an upgraded turbo on its 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder and a side-exit MagnaFlow exhaust system. Another restrained show car is the 3dCarbon - Air Design Fusion, which in all likelihood is the most realistic version with its lower body kit that augments the car's already sporty styling.

Looking to mimic the style of cars in the Australian V8 Supercar Series, the Ice Nine Group have the 2013 Fusion looking far better than next year's NASCAR Sprint Cup car decked out with a lowered stance, large rear wing and an eye-catching Monster Energy Drink paint job. The 2013 Fusion by MRT Performance also has an in-your-face appearance with its punishing black-and-blue paint scheme, but it, too, is modified for performance with an Eco-Flow exhaust system and enhanced chassis tuning.
