“As a member of the Ford family who worked at [the brand’s] Dagenham, U.K. [automotive factory] in the 1980s, and with his passion for performance and in the environment, it’s a match Ford is excited about,” the company said in a press release.

Most people don’t know this, but I worked at Ford as a young guy,” he said. “My dad also worked at Ford. It’s practically in my blood. So working on this project and getting behind the wheel of a car that takes us all towards the future feels like things are coming full circle, but with more exhilaration and tech.”
