New Mondeo: official pics
29 September 2006

Only a week ago Ford revealed the new Mondeo concept – now on show in Paris - and now we've got photos of the real thing.

This is the new 2007 Mondeo hatchback undisguised. As you can see, it sticks pretty closely to the styling of the concept, with many design cues also shared with the new S-Max and Galaxy MPVs.

In fact the car pictured is actually a running model that merely looks identical to the new car - due to film schedules, Ford had to ready a glassfibre version as the new car's production line was not ready.

The new five-door has already hit the headlines as it is being used in the new James Bond film, Casino Royale, which gets its premiere in November.

Bond fans need not worry, however – although the Mondeo features in an early chase sequence in the film, it is merely a hire car that Bond uses to get from the airport to his destination. Bond's own car will be the Aston Martin DBS.

As for the Mondeo, Ford has released precious few details – all we can say for sure is that we'll get more details early next year.
