‘Quantum of Solace’ is produced for EON Productions by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and distributed by Sony Pictures Entertainment.
Directed by Marc Forster, the film stars Daniel Craig as the legendary secret agent, James Bond and opens in the UK and France on October 31st, then across the rest of Europe during November 2008.
The all-new Ford Ka will be available to drivers other than Olga Kurylenko in late 2008/early 2009.
Twelve years after the original Ka was launched, Ford has unveiled its successor which captures the same youthful spirit and will debut at the next Paris Motor Show.
According to Ford, “The new model retains all of the qualities which made the Ka so popular – its compact size, great looks, lively dynamics and fun personality – but presents them in a fresh new package.”
Ford designers have given the new Ka a fashionable, modern appearance based around the company’s ‘kinetic design’ form language.
A number of visual cues provide a connection to the original Ka, but with its distinctive face and chunky proportions the new model has its own unique character.
The interior of the new Ka also has a stylish, dynamic design, combining bold contrasts and expressive colours which reflect the more adventurous tastes of the typical Ka buyer.
