To celebrate the upcoming 25th James Bond ‘No Time To Die’, Aston Martin’s bespoke division is releasing two special 007 editions of the Vantage and DBS Superleggera.
Just as much as one associates a martini ‘shaken and stirred’ with special agent 007 James Bond, it is undoubtedly British automaker Aston Martin that jumps to mind when recalling the famous vehicles 007 has thrown around the streets of cities across the world.
Now celebrating the 25th James Bond film ‘No Time To Die’, Aston Martin’s bespoke division ‘Q by Aston Martin’ has collaborated with film producers EON Productions and are releasing two exclusive limited editions inspired by the vehicles featured in the new film (of which no less than four iconic Aston Marin cars appear – the iconic DB5, DBS Superleggera, Aston Marin’s latest GT, and the Valhalla).
‘Creating a 007 Edition is always an exciting challenge as we work to develop and style a car the embodies the legend of James Bond’ shared Aston Martin Vice-President and Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichmann.’ 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.’
Offered in limited numbers, the first of the two special editions will be the Vantage 007 Edition and is inspired by the 1987 The Living Daylights film, which was the first time an Aston Martin appeared in a James Bond Movie.
The upgraded Vantage comes in Cumberland Grey and features new exterior styling treatments, including a unique bespoke mesh grille with chrome bezel, a yellow diffuser, and the option to include a limited edition The Living Daylights inspired skis and ski rack.
Meanwhile, the 007 Vantage interior features obsidian black leather and dark chrome 007 branding throughout the center console.
Other details include crosshairs etched onto the car’s paddle-shift gear, an embroidered radio station frequency across the sun – visor and laser –etched gadget plaque referencing the weapons and device used on the original film car.
The second special edition, which will be strictly limited to only 25 vehicles, is the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera 007 Edition.
