Ford is celebrating its 100th anniversary in Britain with the unveiling of a special edition Fiesta Centura. The model will be offered exclusively in black and pays tribute to the first Ford vehicles to be manufactured in the UK, the Model T in 1911. The model will be limited to only 1,000 units and will be priced from £13,395 ($21,900) for the three-door version and £13,995 ($22,900) for the five-door.

The new Fiesta Centura will be distinguished by a metallic Panther Black paint, chrome mirror and door caps, LED daylight running lights, 16-inch seven-spoke alloy wheels, automatic headlamps and windscreen wipers, reverse parking sensors, and a parking camera mounted in the rear view mirror.

Anthony Ireson, marketing director, Ford of Britain, said: "Fiesta has been a UK favourite its entire lifetime and it was a natural choice to use this great icon to help mark our centenary. With a unique specification and affordable price, the Centura will appeal to thousands of customers, and we anticipate strong demand – who knows it might even become a collector’s car one day!"

This special edition of Ford Fiesta is absolutely very striking on its aesthetic design, but I wonder if it also had an impressive interior and even figure performance.

So, much angst on its front headlights! I love the fact that it had a very reasonable price. smiley And this kind of car is so practical to use in everyday transportation.

I love the looks of this Centura. It had a simple look but I found it very appealing and it looks so sophisticated on its color and I love the front headlight of it.
