James Bond Special Edition Aston Martin Revealed
Luxury car brand Aston Martin has enjoyed a nice relationship with the James Bond franchise, with the car company hand-building 10 of their DB10 models for 007 to use in Spectre. And while you won’t be able to get your hands on the DB10, Aston Martin is releasing a limited edition DB9 series — and you can own one if you have $250,000 just laying around. Oh, you don’t? I thought everyone did.
As revealed over at THR, Aston Martin is releasing 150 vehicles based on their DB9 GT series, which will run $250,000 each. The new car will hit the streets to coincide with the release of the 24th Bond film, Spectre. You’ll see Bond driving a DB10 in that film, but Aston Martin crafted the model specifically for Spectre and isn’t planning on releasing it anytime soon. Instead, the company says it offers a peek at their future line.
The special edition DB9 GT comes with numbered plates bearing the 007 logo, embroidered handguns on the rear seat divider, and a new version of the startup screen features Bond branding. That price tag seems a bit steep, but buyers of the limited edition run will also receive an Omega Seamster Aqua Terra James Bond watch — also limited edition. You can’t put a price tag on happiness, anyway.
