No Ka-ravaggio

Buy in haste, repent at leisure: it's Ford's 'personalised' Ka stickers

Ford Ka

Want your Ford Ka daubed in gaudy graphics? You've got two simple options.

The first, cheaper choice is to leave it in any dimly lit back street near a posse of likely looking ASBO-totting yoofs.

The only downside here is you have little say, and even less comeback, over the design brief. It's a safe bet that it'll be some variant on the 'Daz woz ere' theme, but linguistic correctness or aesthetic sympathy can't be guaranteed.

Or, as a more expensive but predictable option, you could go for Ford's new Ka-ligraphy range of stick-on graphics, a last ditch shot at shifting a few more Kas before the Fiat 500-based replacement arrives next year.

From a mere £49.99, you can have an 'I luv my Ka' tattoo stuck on the bodywork (no, really), or there are 12 different 'Zodiac' roof designs for £119.99.

There's also the full-on 'Butterfly' artwork option, though - and we feel it necessary to be serious for a moment here - we beg of you: please, please don't.

Ford says the designs only take between five and 30 minutes to stick on, but the shame of driving a Ka with My First Transfers plastered all over it will take longer to wash off.

Now share it...
