We all went ga-ga last week over surreptitiously snapped shots of the new Ford Mondeo sedan that were taken while the car was filming scenes for the upcoming James Bond film, Casino Royale, in which it has a cameo. Well here are the first official shots of Mondeo sedan, although they weren't officially released from Ford according to Motor Authority. Now, we know this isn't actually the production version of the next Mondeo, it's really a one-off built especially for use in the film. We know this because of a few details that would never make it to market like the body-colored rear diffuser and large, Gallardo-like wheels, among others. And technically this car isn't even a sedan, as the rear glass lifts with the deck lid to make it a five-door hatch. But whatev, The look of the next generation Mondeo sits before you, mark our words. Of course, the closest we'll ever get to it is the front row of our local cinemaplex at the premier of Casino Royale. Damn you, Ford!
