DEARBORN (WKZO) -- Ford's operation in India is taking some heat over an ad that never ran.

The ad shows three scantily-clad women bound and gagged in the back of a Ford Figo.  Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is seen in the front of the car throwing up a peace sign.  The tagline read: "Leave your worries behind with Figo's extra large boot."

The ad never saw publication and Ford issued an apology statement to the Indian newspaper "The Hindu."
