Ford Fiesta Teams Up With Top-Selling Author

Ford Fiesta will be appearing in the pages of a fantastic new novel for young women. The Sweetest Taboo is the latest book from 'chick lit' sensation Carole Matthews and goes on sale across Britain on 16 February.

Her last paperback reached number five in the Sunday Times bestseller list. She has also sold the film rights to two of her books. "I've got a long history with cars and my first car was a Fiesta. Most of my books feature young trendy women and so it was a perfect fit with Fiesta. I think there are some car habits that are peculiar to women – using cars as an extension of your handbag and also giving them cute names. The Fiesta I'm driving now is called Flossie," said Carole.

Ford Fiesta Helps 'Techno' Learner Drivers

The learner driver product, 'Pass Your Driving Test Safely Step By Step' is a CD-ROM containing the latest European vehicle safety questions and car maintenance criteria introduced in September 2003.

"We believe that Pass Your Driving Test Safely Step By Step is the most comprehensive learner driver product ever to hit the shelves. Computer generated animations combine with high quality video clips to guide the user through every aspect of learning to drive, step by step. Each lesson can be viewed from up to four different angles and easy to follow voice over explanations accompany each section of the tutorial," said Chris Hodgen, Managing Director, Absolute Entertainment.
