    According to an article in the International Herald-Tribune, Fiat’s new “Panda” will make an appearance in next year’s Casino Royale.

    The Panda is described as a “versatile, practical and stylish small car” just over 3.5 meters long. The Panda won the prestigious “Car of the Year” award for 2004. It has also won a variety of other awards, especially in the UK. The styling (mostly the work of Bertone) has been influenced by the popular SUV culture of recent times. A Panda 4×4 was recently launched, and will most likely be the model featured in Casino Royale.

    But Bond fans need not worry that 007 is trading in his Aston Martin for a Fiat. It’s been confirmed (and reconfirmed) that James Bond will be driving Aston Martin’s new V8 Vantage in Casino Royale. Perhaps the Panda will be the car driven by Bond Girl Vesper Lynd?

    Range Rover’s new 2005 Range Sport has also been rumoured to have a part in Casino Royale, although it’s possible the Panda may have won the role over Rover.
