James Bond to Give Up Aston Martin for a Fiat Panda?

In the next James Bond film, "Casino Royale," coming this year, 007 will get behind the wheel of an unlikely car for an international secret agent — or could it be the most likely secret agent's car of all, hmmm? Word is, Bond will be driving a Fiat Panda, albiet an "armed miniature fortress," as "indestructable as the other Bond cars" according to one news source. Still, while the Panda may upstage the true Bond car for the film, the new Aston Martin V8 Vantage, it won't replace it. [Thanks to RD for the tip.]
