Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is now On Her Majesty’s Secret Service – 50-unit 007 limited edition

James Bond has driven quite a few cars over the decades serving Her Majesty’s Secret Service, but none are as synonymous with 007 as Aston Martin. This association is set to continue, thanks to the most recent collaboration between the British carmaker and EON Productions, the company that produces James Bond films with MGM Studios.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of James Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, 50 On Her Majesty’s Secret Service DBS Superleggera special edition cars will be sold. Painted Olive Green to match the original 1969 Aston Martin DBS driven by James Bond in the classic spy flick, this limited edition lifts the Super GT’s looks to another level.

The OHMSS DBS Superleggera sports a carbon fibre splitter, CF aero blade and unique diamond turned and forged wheels. A bespoke metal grille featuring six bright horizontal vanes adorns the front to replicate the distinctive feature of the old movie’s DBS. The exterior paint surface is enhanced with body coloured cantrails and roof, and there are commemorative side strakes.

Inside, the flagship Aston is trimmed in black leather, accented by grey blend Alcantara. The cockpit is accented in red, inspired by the red trimmed glovebox in the original car, which held 007’s telescopic-sight rifle.

The car’s 50 owners will have the option to select a bespoke designed drinks case which fits perfectly in the boot. The black case opens via a bright metal clasp to reveal the matching red felt lined interior, with space for two bottles of champagne (not supplied, please negotiate with your sales advisor) and four champagne flutes.

The DBS Superleggera is powered by an uprated version of the firm’s 5.2 litre biturbo V12 that also served in the DB11. Here, the twelve-cylinder heart produces 725 PS and 900 Nm of torque between 1,800 rpm and 5,000 rpm. Set low and as far back as possible to optimise centre-of-gravity and weight distribution, the V12 is paired to an eight-speed ZF automatic. The 0-100 km/h sprint is despatched in 3.4 seconds, and top speed is 340 km/h. Shown here in March, it’s yours for RM2.88 million.

“Creating a James Bond special edition is always an exciting challenge as we work to create a car that embodies the legend of James Bond, and the original movie car. The DBS Superleggera is a muscular car that commands attention, but the Olive Green gives it a subtlety that belies the beast beneath,” said Aston Martin VP and chief creative officer Marek Reichman.

The price to play Bond is £300,007 (RM1.59 million before our taxes), with first deliveries commencing in Q4 2019. Those wheels though.

  • Does it gets machinegun headlights, oil spill exhaust, rocket launcher grille, and ejection seats? No Bond car comes without these specs.

      Ofcourse it will not come with those game changing technologies. Don’t expect too much, even Proton X70 doesn’t get 7 seater for their X70

        Lay off that weed. This article has nothing to do with X70 or even Proton. It’s obvious you didn’t get what John was referring to and likely it’s cause you never watch Bond movies at all. Such a sad, dull life.

      • You’d really need to brush up on your Bond knowledge and not talk like a dungu who is just spouting nonsense because you need to say something even if it’s stupid.
