That’s Ford Del Rey, not Lana Del Ray, but this will still probably make you miserable! 

It's not a great car by any standards, and not nearly half as luxurious as this advert makes out. I think it may be trying to distract with all the models and make sure you don’t get too much of a look at its clumsy styling and middling looks. Designed explicitly for Brazil, this model had to be sold over much of Latin America before it could make its mark, and in the end was unceremoniously replaced with the Ford Versailles in 1991.
