Ford’s new Ka is going to be a film star. Continuing Ford’s relationship with the James Bond film series, the Ka will appear in the latest spy thriller Quantum of Solace, driven by Ukranian actress Olga Kurylenko.

Kurylenko plays Camille in the Mark Foster-directed thriller. The Russian-Bolivian agent is initially pitted against Bond, again played by Daniel Craig – but turns ally when she realises she shares his vendetta with the man that killed Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale.

The film car is unique – it’s primped with metallic gold paint and an exclusive exterior graphics and interior trim combination – and was developed in collaboration with Dennis Gassner, the movie’s Oscar award-winning production designer. The production Fiesta makes its debut in October at the Paris motor show. Quantum of Solace is the last in Ford's three-film deal that began with 2002's Die Another Day – and fortunately Bond still gets to drive his Aston Martin DBS.
