Ford is celebrating 100 years in Britain by delving into its photographic archive.

This week we've got another Model T, but this time it's in Dagenham – not going up Ben Nevis.

In today's photo, Ford rally star Mikko Hirvonen is at the wheel of the 1915 car, fresh from leading a Ford 1-2-3 in the opening round of the FIA World Rally Championship in Sweden last weekend.

As Ford says, the Model T's top speed of 45mph isn't quite as thrilling as Mikko's usual 300bhp Fiesta RS rally car, but he looks pretty happy nonetheless.
