Default James Bond swaps Aston Martin for a Mondeo

Ford Mondeo is a better car in the eyes of james Bond. because that's what replaces the Aston Martin in the latest James Bond Flick 'casino royale' starring Daniel Craig.

Haven't they filmed a good portion of the movie already? The producers had to arrange for a Aston Martin AUTOMATIC! because the new Bond can't drive manual! Why would they change the car to Mondeo after shooting with the Aston Martin?

The Bond movies went for the Beemers in between but got back to the Aston Martin. I expected the new Bond car to be the DB9 or the AMV8. The Mondeo really comes as a surprise.

Now everyone out here will say I drive "James Bond ki gaadi"

But honestly nothing suits Bond other than the legendary Astons

Going one step further, Ford had ensured total product placement in Bond movies - looks like Range Rover won twice - once under BMW ownership - tomm never dies and in Die another day resp.

I was shaken enough by your comment to be stirred into writing this.

One of the main reasons i love Bond movies is for the cars.

Now, thats out. :(

Die another day had one of my fav. car chases. Especially the final one between the Vanquish and the Jag.

This time around, there might be car chases of the Mondeo with Hyundai Sonata, Honda accord,etc.. Where is the world going to?? :

looks like ford is trying to make mondeo an icon.

Not possible even if James bond drives.

Is Daniel craig so desperate?

Nice, now we all can be like james bond by having a mondeo with reg no.007,and really dark windows so no one can see inside.
(Car tuners are going to make some more money now..)
