Bond maker's must have thought that for Craig's image, mondeo is more than enough.

I think telling "Craig only knows to drive automatic transmission" is a total bu** s***.

How long will it take for bond maker's to fix an auto into a manual car or how long will it take a guy who knows driving to learn manual if he is serious abt it???????

What did Ford do with all those Mondeos that they couldn't sell in India?
Here's the answer.

What's Bond without surprises?

This is too funny. Bond in a Ford...

I'm sure even the Bond villains will laugh when they see him drive up in a Mondeo.

I remember reading in a mag that the Ford Iosis Concept will provide the base design for the next gen Mondeo. Maybe Ford is unveiling the new 2007 Mondeo in Bond Style or the Iosis might also make an appearance... This makes more sense according to me...

What if this is just some kind of a publicity stunt, I mean like he does drive a Mondeo, but suddenly one scene he appears behind the wheel of an automatic V8 Vantage specially made for bond....I so hope that'll be true........

Dear Bond saar

Please you are driving our own Indica Silhoutte and it veeel make you look very dashing, even if you are dashing the car.

And also it is having only one seat so you need not be afraid of driving with Camilla memsaaab in same vehicle.

Please saar if you are considering this very worthy offer we are offering you a very big payment and also Mallika Sherawat to act in your cinema. Please feel free to crash her with the car, else she will try Jackie Chan stunts on you.

The 21st Bond movie Casino Royale will be premiered worldwide on 17th November 2006. The Bond Girl is Eva Green.
Aston Martin had confirmed before that James Bond will be using one of their cars, possibly a V8 Vantage.

Default James Bond fans

How many of you are James Bond fans? Not just for the action, but also for his one-liners, the exotic women and locations and his cars.

Some of his famous one-liners:
Forgive me father, for I have sinned- 007. That's putting it mildly 007 - Q as father (in For your Eyes Only)
Hi!My name is Pussy Galore- Pussy Galore. I must be dreaming- 007(in Goldfinger)
Hi I'm Plenty-O-Toole- girl. Named after your father perhaps-007 (in Diamonds are Forever)
Do u expect me to talk? - 007. No Mr. Bond, I expect u to die - Goldfinger.
