Ford Rolls Out ‘Bacon-Wrapped’ Fiesta

Starting on Wednesday, owners of the 2014 Ford (F[1]) Fiesta will have the option of covering their vehicles in bacon[2].

Ford’s bacon promotion is connected to International Bacon Day, which takes place this Saturday. Fiesta owners that want a car covered in bacon vinyls have four options available to them: small bacon pieces on the fenders, bacon racing strips, bacon around the rear wheels and 10 strips of bacon that cover most of the car. The bacon vinyls start out at $78 plus installation. Ford says that bacon on a Fiesta gives “a whole new meaning to breakfast to go”, reports USA Today.

“You can only imagine that a hillbilly from Tennessee is pretty happy to hear about a Ford wrapped in bacon,” Allan Benton, CEO of Benton’s Country Hams, told Auto New World[3]. “I expect there will be some real excitement among the young city crowd.”

All of the different bacon vinyls can be viewed on Ford’s Graphics Customizer website.[4]
