Ford’s focus on region’s beauty
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.
