Coolest car - Ford Ice

LONDON (Reuters) - As temperatures soared in London on Tuesday, one car kept its cool at the British International Motor Show - Ford's 6.5-tonne ice sculpture of its new Focus Coupe-Cabriolet.

The full-size model took a team of sculptors working in a giant freezer two weeks to complete. Each shift was limited to just 40 minutes at a time because of the extreme cold -- set at a numbing minus 10 degrees Celsius.

Specialist carving tools imported from Japan and the United States were used, including an advanced computer-driven cutting machine.

Although the ice Ford weighs more than five real Focus models, it won't last for nearly as long.
