It commemorates the 50th anniversary of the film In Her Majesty's Secret Service.
Fifty years ago, the world (albeit temporarily) said goodbye to Sean Connery as James Bond. Her Majesty's Secret Service – the sixth film in the official 007 saga – starred actor George Lazenby in his only role as a British intelligence agent. Although most people associate the exquisite Aston Martin DB5 with classic Bond films, the change of actor also brought about a change in Astons, particularly in the DBS of 1969.
Aston Martin commemorates the film's next Special offer 007 ready to go. The 2019 DBS Superleggera is selected to continue the Bond theme, with only 50 planned for production. All special models wear the same olive green color that matches the original look of the 1969 DBS. In addition, the new model gets a tailor-made grille that is similar to the classic Aston. Carbon trims, forged wheels and a special emblem on the side panels complete the exterior appearance. Black leather with gray Alcantara in the greenhouse is a tribute to the vintage model. Red accents are as much a part of the interior as special door sills, which identify the car as a 007 machine.
And since it is James Bond Buyers for each of the 50 special models the opportunity to buy a special beverage case. It is designed to fit into the trunk of the DBS Superleggera, and with the raw power that this car produces, it is likely that anything stored in the case will definitely shake and not be stirred.
The special edition is just an appearance package – no ejection seats here – but the Superleggera makes with its 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 already 715 hp (533 kilowatts). With the narrow pedal, the Hypercar sprints to 100 km / h in 3.4 seconds, which is fast enough to blow the windows of Lazenby's classic DBS.
Such power and exclusivity is not cheap – Each car costs £ 307,007. It is part of the now-in-production Goldfinger DB5 follower and the DB9 GT Bond Edition from 2015 as the newest member of the growing 007 Special Edition family. The deliveries will start later this year.
