Bacon-wrapped Ford Fiesta: ‘Drive down the road in a piece of bacon’
There are many ways to show your love of bacon. Spritz yourself with bacon cologne, soothe that paper cut with a bacon Band-Aid or name your first-born Bacon. But the bacon-wrapped 2014 Ford Fiesta puts your addiction on wheels.
It’s the brand’s Fiesta model covered in your choice of bacon graphics to celebrate National Bacon Day on Aug. 31.
“It’s no secret that bacon inspires a lot of passion, and that’s what the Fiesta celebrates,” said Liz Elser, Ford Fiesta marketing manager in a release. “Our customers have a hunger for self-expression. Plus, it’s just awesome to drive down the road in a piece of bacon.”
We couldn’t agree more.
Just like in your favorite restaurant, you can customize exactly how you’d like your bacon. Speedsters can get bacon racing strips that include two pieces of bacon on the car’s hood ($191.25 plus an installation fee). Or if you like your bacon on the side, you can go with the side-of-bacon graphic with two individual strips of bacon that wrap over the rear wheels ($318.75 plus installation).
For those on a diet, order the bacon mini-strips, with small bacon-strip graphics above your wheels ($78.75 plus installation).
But if you’re a serious bacon lover, and you want to shout it to the world every time you start the car, you’ll need the full “Bacon Wrap.” It includes 10 giant graphics of bacon strips wrapped around the entire car. The top, sides, hood and even side mirrors are covered in bacon ($3,347 plus installation).
We’d like to suggest this car be called “The Baconater.”
