A Cool Taste of Mustang

If Ford’s Mustang was an ice cream, what flavour would it be? Fortunately our colleagues in the US didn’t opt for anything meaty, deciding something much more fruity was in order instead. Inspired by the Orange Fury paint that will be available stateside for the new Mustang, our friends across the pond collaborated with Coolhaus […]

Custom made deliveries

Tackling the Tour de France – on four wheels

It’s not all about the bikes. The heroes on two wheels rely on a convoy of support vehicles that transport everything from tools to clothes to food and drinks – and more bikes.   The race cars are driven by a sport director, or directeur sportif. It is their responsibility to oversee race tactics, communicate […]

Best seat in the house

Whether it’s an old leather recliner, or a corduroy bean bag, everyone’s got their favourite chair.   So imagine a car with space for six in the rear, where each passenger gets the best seat in the house.   That’s our new Tourneo Custom people mover, with six individual rear seats which can be moved […]

‘Sad’ songs could be key to happy commute – from Abba to Bieber

Songs that sound sad, touch on gloomy themes, or feel melancholy like “Sorry”, Justin Bieber; “The Winner Takes it All”, Abba; and “Mr Brightside” by The Killers, can kick-start your day with a mood boost that is still in effect up to two hours later.   This is among the findings of a new research […]

When Fords Could Fly

Right now the world’s aircraft makers have gathered for the biennial Paris Air Show with multi-billion dollar deals for new airliners taking place and hundreds of new technology reveals including virtual reality based flight simulators. But did you know that between 1925 to 1933 we branched out into commercial aviation? Under founder Henry Ford’s direction […]

Taking the guesswork out of getting out of the way

Trying to locate the source of a siren when you are behind the wheel can be stressful. Worse, it can delay the progress of an emergency vehicle if you do not act quickly and safely.   We have developed technology that sends a signal from the ambulance, fire engine or police car directly to nearby […]

Deep in darkest winter, looking forward to the longest day – when the time between sunset and sunrise is shortest – it is easy to forget that the shortest night could leave us tired and irritable.   At least that looks like the case for many in the UK this week as the price to […]
