New Zealand’s national rugby team, the All Blacks, are hosting the Rugby World Cup later this year, and have just launched an exciting new charity initiative.
A limited edition Ford Fiesta designed by the All Blacks and Ford New Zealand is now on sale to the public. The final look of the AB35 Fiesta, which had input from many players including Richie McCaw, Dan Carter and Conrad Smith, has been kept under wraps for weeks.
Only 35 of the cars have been made by Ford New Zealand, with one of the cars being auctioned for charity on TradeMe.co.nz between May 29th and June 8th.
Proceeds from the auction will go to three charities: Ford New Zealand’s official charity, Variety - The Children's Charity; and the NZRU’s official charity partners, Plunket and KidsCan Charitable Trust.
The All Blacks and the team of Ford New Zealand specialists took a European-built Ford Fiesta and transformed the vehicle by focusing on three areas – exteriors, interior, and performance.
