James Bond becomes Mondeo Man

James Bond is to become a Mondeo Man in the new 007 film Casino Royale.

Ford have paid a reported 14million to get their car used by Bond who's usually seen in an Aston Martin.

The Sun quotes an insider as saying: "It's a huge deal, worth far more than the 2million Daniel Craig is getting."

"Moviegoers will see Bond using the car for chases and picking up girls."

The Mondeo being used for chase scenes in the Bahamas is a souped-up 140mph model.

Craig, 38, will also drivie a new model Aston Martin in the film.
