Aston Martin unveils James Bond-inspired vehicle

Share

Manufactured nostalgia may be worse and worse every day, but Aston Martin just can't help itself when it comes to exploiting James Bond's marketing potential.

Deliveries of the 2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera OHMSS will take place in the fourth quarter of 2019.

The special edition is just an appearance package - no ejection seats here - but the Superleggera already boasts no less than 715 bhp from its 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12.

The release is a collaboration between the British manufacturer and EON Productions, the company that produces the James Bond films with Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios.

If you're looking for all those goodies, consider trying to find one of the very limited versions of the Goldfinger DB5 Continuation cars Aston Martin introduced a year ago.

The special Aston Martin DBS Superleggera in olive green is inspired by the original 1969 Aston Martin DBS that featured in the movie.

Unique appointments include carbon-fibre components for the front splitter and "aero blade", special diamond-turned alloy wheels, a bespoke metal grille up front with six horizontal vanes (replicating the look of the 1969 model), Olive Green exterior paint, body-coloured cantrails and roof, along with commemorative side strakes.

And because we're talking about James Bond, buyers for each of the 50 special edition models will have the option of purchasing a special drinks case.

British carmaker Aston Martin released details Wednesday of a limited edition vehicle to mark the 50th anniversary of the James Bond 007 spy thriller On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Meanwhile, the bespoke metal grill is created to replicate the distinct feature of the DBS featured in the movie. Each numbered model is also stamped "OHMSS edition" and bears the 007 logo. "This new DBS Superleggera will be an extremely distinguished 'brute in a suit, ' created to capture the essence of the iconic DBS from the 1969 film".

On the inside, the auto is trimmed in pure black leather, accented by grey blend Alcantara - a microfiber material, as in the original 1969 DBS. The cockpit is accented in red and was inspired by the red-trimmed glovebox in the original auto.

James Bond fans can get a special edition of the Aston Martin DBS OHMSS Superleggara to satisfy their super spy fancy.
