Aston Martin creates DB9 GT Bond Edition for 007 fans

By ,

Aston Martin today unveiled the new DB9 GT Bond Edition as it previews the release of Spectre, the latest movie starring the world’s most famous secret agent. Production will be limited to 150 units globally, selling at £165,000 (approx. $333,500) apiece. 

Based on the recently introduced DB9 GT, this collector’s item obviously won’t feature the various gadgets used by James Bond. However, customers will find unique numbered sill plaques sporting the familiar “007” logo, gun-barrel embroidery on the rear seat divider, and a special Bond Edition start-up screen on the new model’s AMi II touch-sensitive infotainment system. 

This comes with a suite of elegant Bond-themed accessories to complement the model’s creation, including a 21” Globe-Trotter trolley case finished with an embossed leather luggage tag, and an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra James Bond Limited Edition watch. 

Under the hood, the special DB9 GT Bond Edition houses a 6.0L V12 engine capable of generating 540 horsepower through a rear mid-mounted Touchtronic II six-speed transmission with electronic shift-by-wire control system. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h takes 4.5 seconds, and top speed is rated at 295 km/h.

Will you be one of the 150 lucky owners?
