Who doesn’t want to be Bond? Now, thanks to Aston Martin, you can drive like him.
Well, maybe not exactly like him on public roads, but to celebrate the premiere of the 25th James Bond film, No Time To Die – due for release November 2020 – Aston Martin’s bespoke division, Q by Aston, has unveiled two new, limited edition models.
The Aston Martin Vantage 007 and the DBS Superleggera 007 are both to be kitted out in No Time to Die specifications and wheeled out to discerning film buffs and Aston fans alike.
“Creating 007 Edition is always an exciting challenge as we work to develop and style a car that embodies the legend of James Bond,” says Aston Martin Vice President and Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman. “It is an honour to apply carefully judged 007-inspired styling to our sports cars.”
Distilling the spirit of Bond into a car, Q by Aston has taken the Aston Martin Vantage 007 and melded inspiration from the original Aston Martin V8 – which made its cinematic debut in the 1987 Bond film The Living Daylights.
The limited edition Vantage boasts new styling features including a bespoke mesh grille, chrome bezel, a dashed yellow diffuser and the option to attach The Living Daylights inspired skis and ski rack.
The model will be delivered in authentic cumberland grey paintwork while obsidian black leather, dark chrome, 007 branding and a laser-etched gadget plaque – should you need to imagine yourself vaporising traffic ahead– make up the interior. Only 100 units are to be produced.
The second car in the line-up is a more decadent delivery of the DBS Superleggera. The 715hp, V12 twin-turbocharged engine is still the centrepiece and is further enhanced by a raft of styling choices including a ceramic grey exterior paint with the roof, mirror caps, splitter, diffuser and rear Aeroblade II featured in black tinted carbon fibre.
Striking gloss black diamond-turned Y-Spoke 21” wheels, 007 fender badge, finished in chrome and stainless-steel silver 007 foil applied to the rear spoiler blade complete the menacing look.
With only 25 production models of the Superleggera, much like Bond himself, it’s sure to make a quick getaway.
