The crazy cars that nearly became the Ford Fiesta

Concept cars. Designers get to go a little off piste and predict the future. Over 40 years there have been some wacky ideas for how Britain’s best-selling car could look – and some that, decades on, still influence what we drive today. Which is your favourite? 1 – Ole! Corrida is Spanish for “bullfight” and […]

You made us number 1 again

More people in the UK bought one of our cars or vans last year than anyone else’s, according to the latest industry data. That means we’ve now been the most popular brand for car buyers here since 1977 – the year when Red Rum won the Grand National for a third time, and the number […]

Going anywhere nice for your holidays?

Rain, snow, hail or sleet used to disrupt testing at our premier track in Europe and see the test team decamp to sunnier climes on a regular basis. Now a giant “hairdryer” – and a moment’s inspiration – are helping to keep the track open, all year round. It was while at Schipol Airport, in […]
