Aston Martin has released a special edition sports car that celebrates more
than half a century of James Bond movies.
Limited to 150 examples worldwide, the model is based on the recently launched DB9 GT. Designed to offer the best of what DB9 can be, the DB9 GT Bond Edition delivers world-class grand touring and hand-built excellence.
Building on these exceptional foundations, the new Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition adds even greater levels of exclusivity by virtue of its limited edition build run along with a host of carefully considered trim, equipment and accessory additions that celebrate the brand's more than 50-year association with the famous film franchise.
The DB9 GT Bond Edition is distinguished by a subtle yet elegant selection of styling additions inside and out.
The 6.0-liter V12-engined grand tourer features unique Spectre Silver paint; sterling silver Aston Martin badges front and rear; and discreet '007 Bond Edition' exterior badging.
These features build on the elegant styling of the DB9 GT which includes unique ten-spoke gloss black diamond turned 20-inch alloy wheels; bright aluminum bonnet vents, side strakes and grille; carbon fiber front splitter and rear diffuser, and grey brake calipers.
Inside, the DB9 GT Bond Edition continues its subtle homage to James Bond with unique numbered sill plaques featuring the familiar 007 logo; gun barrel embroidery on the 2+2's rear seat divider and a special Bond Edition start-up screen on the new model's AMi II touch-sensitive Aston Martin infotainment system.
These embellishments add to the car's already luxurious interior environment which includes unique fluted leather; an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and a satin carbon fiber center console surround.
The DB9 GT Bond Edition's 6.0-liter V12 engine is capable of generating 537 hp at 6,750 rpm, and 457 lb-ft (620 Nm) of torque at 5,500 rpm.
The all-alloy, quad overhead camshaft, 48-valve 5,935 cc front mid-mounted V12 is mated to the proven rear mid-mounted Touchtronic II six-speed transmission with electronic shift-by-wire control system. It carries the luxury sports car from rest to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds, and on to a top speed of 183 mph.
Included: Omega Watch, Luggage Case
Besides its unique interior and exterior features, the DB9 GT Bond Edition offers a suite of elegant Bond-themed accessories to complement the model's creation.
Presented in a finely-crafted 21" Globe-Trotter trolley case finished with an embossed leather luggage tag, the collector's car also includes an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m James Bond Limited Edition watch complete with a unique Aston Martin strap.
