Post Ford's clever Sports Illustrated Swimsuit ad features phantom model

Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Marketing/Advertising, Ford, Design/Style

Capitalizing on the allure of attractive models for automotive advertising is anything but a recent phenomenon. Inventing a supermodel, on the other hand, is one of the more inspired tactics we've stumbled across in recent memory.

According to the marketing gurus at Adweek, Ford has placed a full-page advertisement in the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition that includes a beautiful blue Mustang posing alongside what appears to be an equally beautiful and scantily clad model named Dalena Henriques. A quick Google search on her name, not surprisingly, brings up as the top result.

Here's where things get a bit tricky. It seems Dalena Henriques may not be a real person at all. A visit to her website shows the stunning brunette in pose after pose with the 2013 Mustang, and her face is never fully in the frame. The Mustang, though, is front and center in every single image. Clever, Ford. Very clever.Ford's clever Sports Illustrated Swimsuit ad features phantom model originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 15 Feb 2012 14:58:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.

And notice how they have highlighted the headlights so they look like they are looking at her butt. Sex sells!

No, Ford used the Design of the Shelby starting in 2008.

Looks like the Charger lifted the the entire front grille area from Ford
