The two most notable things that change about James Bond films is the actor and what car he drives. Being the car-centric people we are, we usually tend to be more concerned with what car 007 happens to be driving. Afterall, the cars he choices are iconic. As it turns out, Bond has driven quite a few cars made with our favorite blue oval on them. Wondering what Ford cars has James Bond driven?

What is Bond’s Ford in Casino Royale?
In one of the most recent — and best — James Bond films, Casino Royale, James Bond drove a pretty special Ford. Bond drove a Ford Mondeo 2.5L ST, but what is that? Well, it’s basically the UK’s version of the Ford Fusion, though the UK has been enjoying the ST trim that we’re only now supposed to get in the near future. One extra special fact about Bond driving this Ford is that he was filmed driving it more than a year before it even released commercially! Bond’s Ford Mondeo had to be secretly built, and then shipped to the Bahamas. It was handbuilt at Ford’s European design studio in Cologne, Germany.
