Bacon-Wrapped Ford Fiesta Now Possible With Vinyl Strips

The Bacon-Wrapped Fords Are Here!

Now you can roll in smoky goodness.

Ford announced Wednesday that it's selling vinyl strips of bacon to detail 2014 Ford Fiestas.

Is this a porky prank? A crispy slice of a publicity stunt to turn one of its most popular models into a rumaki on wheels? Nope.

"It's obviously kooky and a little irreverent," Ford spokesman Dan Mazei told The Huffington Post. "But that was kind of the point. We thought it was a really cool way to show off how to personalize your car."

Mazei said Ford chose the Fiesta because it was popular among millennials, a demographic looking for something different.

The carmaker timed its pitch to coincide with Saturday's International Bacon Day.

The custom-graphic "pièce de résistance," Ford said, is the full “Bacon Wrap,” consisting of 10 giant strips. But you better be bringing home plenty of bacon to afford it: It'll cost you $3,347, plus installation.

Want to sizzle for less? Two strips on the hood cost $191.25 plus installation. "Mini-strips" run $78.75.
