This is new Bond girl Olga Kurylenko. That unobtrusive, insignificant piece of furniture under her left elbow is the new Ford Ka.
Ford has shown us this picture to highlight what a modern, trendy, fun-loving, beautiful sort of car the new Ka is. We are showing this picture to you because we rather like Ms Kurylenko.
Ms Kurylenko likes her Ka, we’re told. She drives it in Quantum of Solace, the new Bond flick that’s out at the end of this week but that we’ve already watched because we’re lucky like that.
We liked Ms Kurylenko in Quantum of Solace. We’re fairly sure we saw the new Ka in there too, but we were a bit distracted, truth be told.
If you want to read our first drive of the new Ford Ka, look out for the December issue of Top Gear magazine, out on Thursday. If you want to find out more about Ms Kurylenko, we’re told that there are internet sites that cater to that sort of thing. Ahem.
You can watch the trailer, or this awesome clip of the car chase from the movie (with the Aston, not the Ka):
