The German city of Cologne awoke to a curious sight when the nearby Ford of Europe Niehl plant had been transformed with a bright, dazzling coat of multi-color paintwork.Reports of unusual activity at the Ford site had emerged from workers based on the opposite side of the River Rhein. This morning, however, all eyes were on the complete transformation of the site. What was yesterday's grey industrial building is now a huge burst of red, green, pink, blue and yellow swirls.
Created to celebrate the start of production of the all-new Ford Fiesta, the new-look plant has astonished and delighted site workers and residents alike.
Karl Anton, Niehl plant manager said: "We're sure that many of Cologne's residents will have noticed the strange, colorful metamorphosis at our Ford Fiesta production plant. We know many people have been speculating on the purpose of the eye-catching makeover, and now we're finally able to clear up the mystery. Our workers have become so smitten with the new Ford Fiesta that we have decided to re-christen the plant the `Fiesta Love Factory' and decorate it in celebration. We hope people will fall in love with the new Fiesta as much as we have!"
The transformation of the factory marks the start of the build up to the launch of the new Fiesta in October.
