Ford Ka: A ride for all Bond girls

New Ka uses Ford's Kinetic design--which means it has fancy trapezoidal headlights and is wedge-shaped to give the impression it's in motion, even when it's standing still.

With Question of Sport Quantum of Solace just days away from release, Crave's car nerds have been clamoring to discover which new motors Jimmy Bond gets to pootle about in. We were sat here expecting to see an Aston Martin or a BMW, but surprisingly, the first car to gain prominence from the new flick is a Ford Ka.

WTF? Has MI6 been affected by the credit crunch? Not exactly--it turns out the Ka belongs to new Bond girl Camille, played by the delightful Miss Olga Kurylenko.

Apparently she uses it as a runabout, but in true Bond style, it's not long before the Ka becomes embroiled in an action-packed chase scene. In one sequence, someone--possibly 007 himself--can be seen diving out of the door just before it zooms off, possibly crashing into a low-flying helicopter.

Before you start moaning about it being a Ka, remember Roger Moore was seen driving a Citroen 2CV in For Your Eyes Only, and in Live and Let Die, Bond even got away in a knackered old bus. At least the new Ka uses Ford's Kinetic design--which means it has fancy trapezoidal headlights and is wedge-shaped to give the impression it's in motion, even when it's standing still.

You can have a look at what sort of tech might be in the Ka by checking out our video review of its big brother, the Focus, here . Alternatively, ogle Olga (and the Ka) by hitting the Continue button. When you're done, take a cold shower and watch some B-roll of the movie by clicking this link.
