Ford’s fo­cus on re­gion’s beauty

North Wales Weekly News - - NEWS - BY LIAM RAN­DALL

THE breath­tak­ing scenery of North Wales has been fea­tured in a new ad­vert by car gi­ant Ford.

Lo­ca­tions in­clud­ing Zip World at Bethesda, the Great Orme in Llan­dudno, De­ganwy, Cric­ci­eth, the Faenol Es­tate near Y Felin­heli and Elec­tric Moun­tain at Llan­beris ap­peared in the three minute video, which was shown at the Frank­furt Mo­tor Show last week.

The clip is de­signed to pro­mote the mo­tor com­pany’s all wheel drive fea­ture, which is now in­cluded with eight of their mod­els and de­signed to de­liver bet­ter grip and sta­bil­ity on all sur­faces.

The ad­vert fol­lows the jour­ney of a num­ber of ve­hi­cles in the range, trav­el­ling from Snow­do­nia to Black Rock Sands in Morfa By­chan.

It’s not the first time parts of North Wales have been fea­tured on the small screen by the in­dus­try’s big guns.

Ear­lier this year the cre­ation of the largest sand draw­ing in the UK – of a Land Rover – was filmed on the beach at Red Wharf Bay, An­gle­sey.

It was the lo­ca­tion where en­gi­neer­ing di­rec­tor Mau­rice Wilks sketched the shape for the orig­i­nal ve­hi­cle back in 1947.

In Septem­ber 2012 film crews shot an amus­ing ad­vert fea­tur­ing dogs for Volk­swa­gen on Llan­dudno Prom­e­nade, Glod­daeth Av­enue and Marine Drive on the Great Orme.
