Ford Fiesta (2008)

The all-new Ford Fiesta marked the start of its sales in Britain yesterday with a spectacular tango dance extravaganza at the Tower of London.

Using two of the first all-new Fiesta models to arrive in the UK, stunt drivers drove a Squeeze Green and Hot Magenta models to perform a unique Tango car dance, specially created by choreographer to the stars Paul Harris and international stunt driver Paul Swift.

Strictly Come Dancing winner, Mark Ramprakash, and Tango troupes from across London joined in the party atmosphere. Today, while they nurse their hangovers and smoking tyres, the all-new Fiesta goes on sale across Britain.

Hosting the party was Ford of Britain's chairman and managing director, Roelant de Waard, who said: "We created the new Fiesta with a real passion and we’re confident that it’s the car the nation is about to fall in love with and so what better way to launch it than with the classic dance of love – the Tango!"
