Snakes, Aching Limbs and iPads

By Tori T.

When the very first international auto show was held, attendees probably joked about vehicles that might one day run on electricity, or that occupants would have the ability to watch DVDs on long road trips. OK, maybe not exactly that, but things are probably nothing like what they would have expected decades later. But the idea behind these shows hasn’t changed all that much; vehicles still debut from international automakers, including Ford, and it’s all about wowing the crowd during the reveal, and it's often the first time the vehicles have been seen publicly.

But how does an automaker attempt to one-up all the others? For the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, Ford focused on cutting-edge technology, doing a mash-up of the advanced features on its vehicles and the advanced conveniences featured in our everyday lives. The result was exactly what you’re thinking: 18 performers, 36 iPads, “big people from Ford” getting their groove on and sore biceps and triceps. Or maybe you thought less dancing.

In the video above, we'll take you where no one else can – behind the scenes of the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, where you’ll see what happened before, during and after the short show that was part of the media days!

Tenho um Carro Ford fiesta, comprado em novembro de 2011, modelo 2012, o carro tem 6.160 km rodados, que apresentou pela quarta vez o mesmo defeito: quando desliga, não consegue dar mais a partida com minha família a bordo (que danos morais), tenho que contatar a garantia para levar o veículo até uma concessionária mais próxima, para fazer o reparo. Hoje, 23/04/2012, o carro, encontra-se na concessionária, aqui em Salvador-Ba/Brazil, estando na concessionária há 18 dias e nada de carro (que constrangimento), será que a Ford pode substituir esse veículo; sabe, não confio no carro.

Hey Ford ! Saw a post above for a Titanium Focus, lets raise the wish list potential and wish for a Titanium Wagon like they have in the UK. Just got back from the Ford UK website looking at hopefully what will be the Transit Van before too long and visited the Focus Wagon, make mine in the Sterling Grey in the Titanium build level.
