Ford will launch Ka Grand Prix Limited Edition in Netherlands

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 22, 2011

Ford will introduce the Ka Grand Prix limited edition on the Dutch market and will give this vehicle a touch of the motorsport world. The differences between the limited edition model and its regular production version may not be that obvious at a glance. The limited edition features a single offset racing stripe that runs the length of the car.

Buyers can choose to have the body painted in either Sunrise with Chrystal White accents or Chrystal White with Sunrise accents.

The racing Ka has also been fitted with 16-inch alloy wheels with wide 195/45 R16 tires, large rear spoiler, extra dark Privacy Glass and fog lamps, and contrasting grille and side mirrors. It has a more luxurious interior. Ford covered the steering wheel and the seats in leather and colored the handbrake grip and gear knob in Sunrise Grand Prix.

The Ka Grand Prix is powered by a 1.2l petrol engine with Start/Stop technology and comes with ABS, airbags for driver and passenger, air conditioning, remote central locking, electric door windows, audio system with CD player, electrically operated and heated door mirrors, a height-adjustable steering wheel and height-adjustable driver's seat. There will only be 120 samples of this model, which will each be sold for EUR10.995.

When the first Ford Ka was introduced in 1996, it became a great, cool option in the small, low-cost car segment. Today, the latest Ka updates its joyful, fashionable design to keep its appeal for today’s trendsetting drivers. The latest version of the Ka remains true to the appeal of the original model by modernizing the small but chic and sprightly design that promises an enjoyable ride. The eye-catching design from inside out gives it a distinctive, sporty appeal while also ensuring everyday functionality, safety, and fuel efficiency.

This makes it an excellent choice for value among small cars and writes a new chapter in the Ford Ka’s legacy of success. The latest model of the Ka shows that Ford now applies their dynamic style philosophy even to their most compact models.

The new Ka’s design brings a young and sassy appeal to the Ford signature aesthetic, just like its successful predecessor. A great car for younger image-conscious drivers, it keeps the original model’s compact shape in a more solid package while adding newer trimmings to set it apart. Accents from the overall design remain true to the original Ka, but it now looks more evidently sprightly which reminds the onlooker that this is definitely part of Ford’s stable of kinetically stylish cars.

Inside, the latest Ford Ka looks and feels as fashionably vibrant as it does from outside. Ford’s design dynamism seen in the car’s silhouette and external detailing translates inward to keep the same modern appeal. The colours and patterns are vibrantly combined and were specifically selected to keep up with the evolving tastes of their target market. The unique details and patterns used means the interior looks just as lively and trendy and gives it an atmosphere that is seldom felt when riding inside a small low-cost car.

Importantly, the latest version of the Ford Ka remains ideal for everyday driving with substantial comfort easily for four passengers along with their various carry-ons. The seating height, intuitive control layout and all around visibility means that any driver would find driving the new Ford Ka an enjoyable experience.
