New James Bond inspired Aston Martin DBS Superleggera revealed

New limited-run, Aston Martin DBS Superleggera commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service

To mark the 50th anniversary of the sixth James Bond movie, “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service,” Aston Martin has launched a limited edition DBS Superleggera. Inspired by the 1969 Aston Martin DBS featured in the Bond classic, the new car will be limited to just 50 units when it goes on sale at the end of 2019, with each costing £300,007.

New additions for this new limited edition model include a set of unique diamond-turned alloy wheels, a carbon fibre splitter, a carbon fibre aero blade and a new six-slat metal grille, which apes the grille fitted to Bond’s DBS. The limited run DBS Superleggera is also finished in “Painted Olive Green,” to match the 1969 classic from the film.

Aston Martin DBS Superleggera review

The interior of Aston Martin’s commemorative DBS Superleggera is trimmed in black leather and grey Alcantara, again to match that of the 1969 model. It also comes with a range of red trim highlights such as red piping, stitching and embroidered limited edition badges.

The powertrain is unchanged, so you’ll find a 5.2-litre V12 producing 715bhp and 900Nm of torque under the bonnet. Power is fed to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission, providing a 0–62mph time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 211mph. 

As an optional extra all 50 owners of the special edition model will have the option to spec a drinks case. The case fits into the boot and comes with a red felt lining, four champagne flutes and space for two bottles of champagne.
