Aston Martin Vantage 007 Edition - DBS Superleggera 007 Edition

Aston Martin is commemorating the release of the 25th James Bond film, with two exclusive 007 special editions inspired by the cars seen in No Time to Die. This new collaboration between Aston Martin and EON Productions, the company that is involved in producing the James Bond films with Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios, provides new 007 editions of the Aston Martin Vantage and DBS Superleggera.

No Time To Die will be released across the world in November 2020 and will feature no less than four iconic Aston Martin sports cars: the iconic DB5; the classic Aston Martin V8; the brand’s latest super GT, DBS Superleggera; and the exceptional Aston Martin Valhalla – the company’s forthcoming mid-engined hypercar.

The two special editions that celebrate the release of No Time To Die, each of which is being provided in limited numbers to buyers around the world, have been carefully designed and made by the experts in Aston Martin’s bespoke division: Q by Aston Martin. Aspiring to offer the ultimate in bespoke personalization services, Q by Aston Martin delivers both carefully curated special editions like these ones, and also the opportunity for individual owners to embark on the creation of individual sports cars through the Q by Aston Martin – Commission service.

The first of the two models is the Vantage 007 Edition, inspired by the original Aston Martin V8 which saw its 007 debut in The Living Daylights in 1987 and also showed up in No Time to Die. The movie observes James Bond uncover the car from his personal lock-up in London.

Building on the formidable sporting style and aggressive performance of the regular Vantage, the new car includes unique exterior styling treatments led by a bespoke mesh grille with a chrome bezel that references the appearance of the brand’s classic V8. Further styling details consists of a dashed yellow diffuser inspired by the hazard stripes on the film car’s rockets. The Vantage 007 Edition can even be provided with a set of The Living Daylights inspired limited edition skis and ski rack – referencing the ‘winterized’ V8 saloon from the film.

The car will be provided in authentic Cumberland Grey exterior paint colour, whilst the interior will be presented in obsidian black leather and dark chrome with 007 brandings applied on the centre console of cars geared up with a manual gearbox. The sun visors of all the cars will carry another subtle film reference in the shape of an embroidered radio station frequency – 96.60 (FM) – which 007 buffs will know was the Russian police frequency Bond used to aid his escape in The Living Daylights.

The seats themselves include unique heritage fluting reminiscent of that seen in the V8, along with carbon fibre seatbacks and, in a generally detailed nod to the 1980s film, the outline of cello ‘f holes’ inspired by the memorable cello chase scene featuring James Bond (Timothy Dalton) and Kara Milovy (Maryam D’Abo).

The driver can indulge themselves further with a laser-etched gadget plaque that references the various weapons and devices observed in the original film car. These included a rocket motor, missiles, lasers, a targeting display and ski outriggers. Cross hairs etched onto the vehicle’s paddle shift gear levers allude to the missile guidance system observed in the film, too. Available as a manual or automatic, the Vantage 007 Edition also boasts a side strake Vantage badge and is limited to 100 units worldwide.

“Creating a 007 Edition is always an exciting challenge as we work to develop and style a car that embodies the legend of James Bond. It is an honour to apply carefully judged 007-inspired styling to our sports cars, which gives our customers the opportunity to own a unique piece of both cinematic and automotive history,” said Marek Reichman, Aston Martin Vice-President and Chief Creative Officer.

A second unique 007 Edition has been made to celebrate the James Bond debut of the range-topping Aston Martin DBS Superleggera.

Strictly limited to only 25 production cars available globally and featuring the same specification as the muscular DBS Superleggera featured in the upcoming film, the vehicle has a suitably menacing road presence.

The 715bhp offered by the DBS Superleggera’s 5.2-litre V12 twin-turbocharged engine is befitting of the car’s range-topping status while its torque peak, at 900Nm, is not only substantial in its own right but, as things presently stand, the greatest torque figure for any roadgoing Aston Martin yet produced.

To this potent mix, the DBS Superleggera 007 Edition includes a raft of styling and design improvements that further elevate its appeal. The car sports special Ceramic Grey exterior paint with the roof, mirror caps, splitter, diffuser and rear Aeroblade IITM featured in black tinted carbon fiber. Also unique to the 007 Edition are visually attractive Gloss Black diamond-turned Y-Spoke 21” wheels. This special edition also includes a 007 fender badge, finished in chrome with black enamel infill, and Stainless Steel Silver 007 foil applied to the rear spoiler blade.

Inside, the cockpit of this DBS Superleggera is a dark, brooding, leather-clad environment with flashes of red detailing the outline of the seats. Subtle 007 branding can be discovered on the door cards, armrest buckle badge and on the rear sub-woofer cover. The car is completed with a sill plaque that recognises it is one of just 25 DBS Superleggera 007 Editions. 

The DBS Superleggera 007 Edition with a recommended retail price from RRP £279,025 ($368,565) and the Vantage 007 Edition with a recommended retail price from RRP £161,000 ($212,665) are on sale separately now. The first deliveries will start in Q1 2021.
