While we all can’t wait for the release for the 24th film in the Bond franchise, Spectre, Aston Martin has done us a favour by unveiling the strictly limited DB9 GT Bond Edition as a tribute to the aforementioned film.
Only 150 examples will ever be produced. This highly desirable model will be based on the recently launched DB9 GT, powered by a 6.0 litre V12 engine with 547 PS and 620 Nm of torque. It accelerates to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and achieve terminal velocity at 295 km/h.
The Bond Edition will feature unique Spectre Silver paint, sterling silver Aston Martin badges front and rear and discreet ‘007 Bond Edition’ exterior badging. Ten-spoke gloss black diamond-turned 20-inch wheels, bright aluminium bonnet vents, side strakes and grille, carbon-fibre front splitter and rear diffuser and grey brake calipers complete the exterior enhancements.
On the inside, unique numbered sill plaques featuring the 007 logo, gun barrel embroidery on the 2+2 rear seat divider and a special Bond Edition start-up screen on the infotainment system are added. The luxurious interior includes unique fluted leather, an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and a satin carbon-fibre centre console surround. Simply glorious, this is.
If you’re still not blown away by the sheer detail of this sublimely created vehicle, Aston Martin is also offering a suite of elegant Bond-themed accessories to complement the model. A finely-crafted 21-inch Globe-Trotter trolley case finished with an embossed leather luggage tag, and an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m James Bond Limited Edition timekeeper complete with a unique Aston Martin strap will also be included with the vehicle.
The Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition is available to order in selected markets around the world, priced at £165,000 (RM1,067,100).
