2012 Ford Focus showing off its Tattoos
2012 Ford Focus shows off its tattoosFord has announced they are extending their popular vinyl graphic program to the 2012 Focus. and goes on sale next year there will be over 200 unique vinyl wrap tattoos costing from $120 to $470 available for the new car.
The Blue Oval team did some research and found that nearly four in 10 Millennials have at least one tattoo. It's not a stretch, then, to figure they might want to throw one on their car. People already put graphics on cell phones, laptops and whatever else is around, so allowing an outlet for automotive creativity makes sense. These automotive tattoos won't be in short supply, either – Ford is offering over 200 different designs for the all-new Focus.
The drawings which you can place on the body of the model have been developed by Original Wraps. You can view the designs and decide which one would fit your car better by visiting the following link. Keep in mind though that you might spend some time checking out the graphics, considering the fact that you will have to combine the 11 exterior paint colors of the car with the available graphics.

The designers at PRIOR DESIGN have come up trumps just in time for the New Year with a customised body kit for the new E-Class Coupé. Following on from their body kit for the CLK W209, the designers from Kamp-Lintfort have now come up with further impressive evidence of their exceptionally skilled eye for the sporting contours and perfect proportions of cars of the Mercedes-Benz marque.
The front of what is fundamentally a very elegant coupĂ© has been given a new bumper with side vents and a spoiler blade. A set of side sills that, from a visual perspective, perfectly connect the car’s front and rear have been used to create the impression of a lowered outline. At the back there is a rear bumper extension with three fins, a spoiler lip for the boot, and a roof edge spoiler, with all three components also available in genuine carbon fibre as an option.
The visual effect is greatly enhanced by the new PRIOR GT wheel rims, fitted as 8.5 x 20-inch wheels at the front and 9.5 x 20-inch wheels at the rear. Together with the in-house lowering by 35 millimetres, they ensure that the wheel arches are filled perfectly. The PRIOR GT rims are available in matt black, gloss black and silver.
With regard to the exhaust system, the customer has the choice between a tail pipe on the left and a complete sports 4-pipe exhaust system in stainless steel. The exhaust system is, of course, MADE IN GERMANY, as are all the other parts of the body kit.
It is also worth mentioning that all the parts of this conversion kit also fit the convertible version of the E-Class. PRIOR DESIGN offers a range of trim parts in carbon for the interior.
PRIOR DESIGN offers various increased performance options on site of up to 55 kW / 75 bhp depending on the engine version.
