Ford Ka news - A view to a Ka - 2008

Ahh, how cute. Look - it’s the new Ford Ka.
And it’s gonna be a Bond car…

Well, it’s actually a Bond girl car; a nice little runabout for Bond’s little lady. It’ll appear in the next
007 movie, Quantum of Solace, just after it gets officially unveiled at the
Paris show in early October.

And its on-screen custodian will be a
feisty leading lady called Camille - played by the attractively named Olga
Kurylenko. So while her dashing hero rags it around in a DBS, she’ll be punting
about in the Ka. But that’s OK, because she’s a lady on ‘her own personal
mission’, apparently.

A mission to Tesco, we presume. Maybe to
pick up some dinner for her hero. Or some milk, for the Bond girls coffee
 morning.

Cynical product placement doesn’t come
much better than this. And Ford’s stranglehold over the 007 empire continues.
Remember Daniel Craig’s
Mondeo hire car in Casino Royale?

Only the
power of corporate dollars could make a Ford into a Bond car. But can you think
of any less likely candidates?
