James Bond to drive Jaguar XF in Bond 22?
James Bond will drive the Jaguar XF in the next 007 feature film, according to a report by Bond fansite MI6. Ford has a three-film, $100 million contract for product placements in the Bond movies, and has used the last two films to showcase its Aston Martin sports cars.
With Ford likely to sell Aston Martin to another company in the coming months, it will turn to Jaguar for the next Bond car. The Jag of choice will be the forthcoming XF sedan, according to the report. Ford previewed the car with the C-XF concept this week in Detroit. Testing of production prototypes has already begun, and the XF should be in showrooms by the time Bond 22 (working title) is in theaters (mid to late 2008).
