Ford's sexy new Ka!

2008-07-29 20:28

A Photo of Ford’s new Ka has been leaked onto the internet ahead of its launch at the Paris Motor Show. And it is a sexy number that replaces the outgoing odd looking model.

The new Ka, which shares its underpinnings with that of the Fiat 500, mimics the design of the new Fiesta.

Although there is very little official info, the Ka will get 1.4 and 1.6-litre petrol engines. A 1.6-litre TDCi diesel engine is on the cards too. Rumours have it that an ST version is coming too –this model will get the 1.4-litre turbocharged engine from the 500 Abarth.

European sales will kick off early in 2009, and the Ka will find its way to South Africa shortly after that.

It will also make a cameo in the new James Bond film, Quantum of Solace.
