New James Bond Daniel Craig will reportedly drive a Ford Mondeo in the next 007 adventure Casino Royale. But fans shouldn't worry too much, Craig will still be driving the spy's famed Aston Martin as well. And the Mondeo will be a souped-up

he also drove a 2CV after his esprit blew up!

you can see the ford marketing boys rushing to launch the 007 edition mundaneo..

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

there is no way I would consider to own a Mondeo even it's featured in a 007 movie...

and why 007 cannot drive manual..!!???

honestly, the new Bond looks just like building construction workers in China....

no appeal....I won't spend money on these new Bond movie until another actor shows up.

Seriously... Marc would have made a better 007 than whoever that one guy they hired is :lol: Is it too late to arrange a date with the director?

Automatic... what a wuss.

Well, it's not as bad as For your Eyes Only, where one Esprit gets blown to bits and the other barely gets 5 minutes in the movie... forsaken for a 2CV... No, actually it's way worse because at least a 2CV has personality. Now Bond drives around in a f*cking Ford Contour.

They might as well stick him in a modified civic blasting Korn and Limp Bizkit from the stereo... How the f*ck do you look glamorous in a Mondeo?

Ford has more money :lol:

Hopefully they make a car that they again can park in front of the studio and have the JB people request it

Can't believe Ford managed to get both cars in there - AM is fine but a bleeding Mundane-o.. chri*t on a bike...

Mondeo was a US car - think it was juts badged Taurus your side... boring boring small-mid sized sedane

Rebadged as the Contour actually. Which still makes it better than the Taurus. Unless you've got a SHO.

Didn't mind the overbearing Ford overload with the Jag and Tbird in the last movie (few cars could have saved that movie though :lol: The most recent mondeo has limited forbidden fruit appeal to me, but I'm sure that would go away if I saw them every day.

At least the AMC Matador looked cool :(

haha....it will be the end of 007 movie when you see James Bond driving Kit-Cars...

(such as Countach with Lexus V8 engine)

**by the way, I think the Director is trying to make Bond a more realistic person..whom that likes to go to supermarket to shop for foods...and pick up children after school...

Give him the APX then. :mellow:

The Mondeo is a sensible choice. I have wondered in the past how

some dictator glances down from his hotel penthouse, looks at the

lotus Esprit rolling up in the carpark, and thinks...

'now, where can that british agent be?'

Do you reckon the script writers could write in that Q made two Esprit S1 subs and that the second car has been in storage for thirty years and has had some 21st century mods!? Like some power maybe!! :mellow: How cool would that be!
