Along with babes and bullets, James Bond is quite well-known for his fine taste in transportation … and it seems he’s chosen a rather unique piece of machinery for his opening battle in "Casino Royale" — a bulldozer designed by Fiat.

From Reuters: "British secret agent James Bond has chased the world’s most dangerous villains in everything from cars to spaceships, but in his latest adventure, his vehicle of choice will be a bulldozer. In the opening scene of "Casino Royale," the 21st instalment of the popular movie franchise, Bond will pursue his latest enemy in a four-wheel W190 bulldozer supplied by Fiat, the Italian industrial group.

Although its vehicles have appeared in a number of movies including the Alfa Romeo Spider in "The Graduate," it is the first time that Fiat will have one starring in a Bond movie."

I don’t know much about cars, but why would Fiat build a bulldozer? Does Mercedes build fire trucks?
