The striking Focus Vignale concept car
Recently Wheels24 predicted that Ford is due to launch a drop-top verson of the Focus.
Now the company has lifted the lid on the Ford Focus Vignale concept featuring a folding metal and glass roof.
A production version of the Vignale concept will go on sale in 2006, and it will rival cars such as the Renault Megane cc and Peugeot 307cc.
The name "Vignale" pays tribute to Italian car designer Alfredo Vignale (1913-1969). He was responsible for a number of Ford designs.
Ford is launching its all-new Focus at the Paris Motor Show. Wheels24 managing editor John Oxley is there and will also get to drive Ford's Golf rival. Watch this space for John's driving impressions of the car!
