Dino Morea, former supermodel and Bollywood actor, is admired by his fans for his good looks and impressive persona. Apart from a successful modeling career, he also carved an image for an actor through some known movies like Raaz, Heroes, Rakht, etc. However, we are discussing about his passion for wheels and his toys. Apart from racing cars, the man also likes to hold some interesting metal in his garage. This time we are talking about his legendary Ford Ikon, a rare but remarkable pair of wheels especially among celebrity cars.

Introduced in 1999, the Ikon was among the most successful Ford cars in India. It debuted as a ‘Josh Machine’ and enjoyed a huge fan following for its sporty looks and premium style. Though it is a discontinued model now, it is still remembered for being one of the first foreign cars that was modified according to Indian’s needs and requirements. The main emphasis was given to its power trains that consisted of a 1.3litre petrol, 1.3-litre CNG, and 1.8-litre diesel mill. The petrol mill could effortlessly churned power worth 70PS and could stride from 0-100kmph speed in just 15.2 seconds. The diesel mill, on the contrary, yielded 68PS for 160Nm and sprinted from 0-100kmph in 13.8 seconds.

It ruled the roads for 12 years and garnered positive feedbacks from all sides. Ford Ikon was the first of Ford cars in India to register a trade figure of 100,000 units in just 6 years. The main reason for this was its awesome fuel economy that stood on 10kpl for petrol and 12kpl for diesel version. In aesthetic sense, it bore an appreciable kinetic design on outer end while the interiors featured spacious cabin and high end comfort features. This Ford car price bracket extended from Rs.4.75 lakhs to Rs.6.75 lakhs.
