Ford concept gets green light

Ford Europe and Pininfarina are teaming up again, having signed a new contract to turn the Focus Vignale from design concept into production reality, expected at the end of 2006.

The one-off Ford Focus Vignale Concept debuted in the new Ford Focus range, which premiered at the 2004 Paris Motor Show.

"The media and public reaction to the Ford Focus Vignale Concept in Paris was outstanding, and confirmed that we should put this vehicle into production at the earliest opportunity", said Lewis Booth, President of Ford of Europe. "Its elegance and flair emphasise the dynamic design of the new Focus range".

Full technical details and the name of the production version of this new Focus model will be announced closer to its launch in approximately two years time.
