Aston Martin celebrates Bond movies with 007 Limited Editions


Aston Martin’s Q division has revealed two Bond movie-inspired special editions that are limited to 125 units combined. The first one is the DBS Superleggera 007 Edition, to celebrate the 25th James Bond film — No Time To Die, while the other one is the Vantage 007 Edition that pays homage to the Aston Martin V8 that appeared in the 1987 movie — The Living Daylights.

The DBS Superleggera 007 Edition, limited to 25 units, apparently has the same specification as the one featured in the upcoming Bond film. The exterior is painted in Ceramic Grey, with the roof, mirror caps, splitter, diffuser and rear Aeroblade II finished in black tinted carbon fibre. Also unique to the 007 Edition are the Gloss Black diamond-turned Y-Spoke 21-inch wheels.

Inside, the dark cockpit of this DBS Superleggera features red contrast stitching and carbon fibre bits. Subtle 007 branding can be found on the door cards, armrest buckle badge and on the rear sub-woofer cover. Rounding off the 007 treatment is a sill plaque that recognises the car’s limited edition.

No mechanical changes whatsoever, as the 5.2-litre V12 twin-turbo motor already offers 725 metric hp (533 kW) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) of torque, which is plenty.

The Vantage 007 Edition on the other side, as mentioned, remembers the classic Aston Martin V8 in a 1987 Bond movie. It is limited to 100 units. The exterior is finished in Cumberland Grey with dashes in Yellow; the latter was apparently inspired by the hazard stripes on the film car’s rockets. The movie-inspired skis and ski rack is optional.

Inside, the cockpit is finished in obsidian black leather and dark chrome with 007 branding on the centre console of the cars equipped with a manual gearbox. Other references to the film include embroidered radio station frequency on the sun visors, and crosshairs etched onto the paddle shifters alluding to the missile guidance system seen in the film.

There’s also a cheesy looking laser-etched gadget plaque that references the various weapons and devices seen on the original film car.

No mechanical changes on the Vantage 007 Edition either. It packs an AMG-sourced 4.0L V8 biturbo motor that pumps out 510 metric hp (375 kW) and 685 Nm (505 lb-ft) of torque.

The DBS Superleggera 007 Edition will carry a price tag of £279,025, while the Vantage 007 Edition will ask £161,000 to complete the mission. First deliveries will begin in Q1 2021.
