Vehicle Overview

The Ford Corrida made its debut as the first Fiesta-based concept car at the Turin Motor Show in November 1976, coinciding with the launch of the Fiesta itself. Named after the Spanish term for bullfighting, “Corrida,” Carrozzeria Ghia envisioned the Corrida Concept as a pioneering sports car for the modern era, boasting an array of advanced safety features. Built upon the Fiesta platform, the Corrida Concept was not merely inspired by its compact counterpart; it also shared the same engine, underscoring its performance pedigree. One of the most striking features of the Corrida was its pneumatically operated gull-wing doors, ingeniously hinged in two segments for added functionality and flair. Innovative design extended to the Corrida’s aerodynamics, with electrically operated flaps for the headlamps ensuring optimal performance on the road. The rear luggage compartment, uniquely hinged at the bottom, offered practicality without compromising the car’s sleek profile. Inside, the Corrida’s driving environment was equally distinctive. The instrument cluster was an array of boxes, providing a visually striking sense of compartmentalization that set it apart from conventional dashboard layouts. Bold in appearance, the Ford Corrida concept car sported a vibrant orange hue with sleek black accents, embodying the spirit of innovation and adventure. Its eye-catching design and forward-thinking features captured the imagination of enthusiasts and industry insiders alike, cementing its status as a pioneering concept car for its time. While the Corrida concept never made it to production, its legacy lives on as a testament to Ford’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of automotive design and technology. With its bold styling, advanced safety features, and innovative engineering, the Corrida remains a celebrated icon of automotive innovation.
