License to thrill: The limited edition Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition
The love story between Aston Martin and James Bond dates back half a century, and the ties are stronger than ever today. As the new James Bond film – Spectre – is set to premiere soon, the classic car brand has produced something very special for the occasion.
Meet the very limited edition DB9 GT Bond Edition. With only 150 models being made worldwide, the design is an adaptation of the original DB9 GT, with a 6.0-litre V12 engine finished in silver paint, and sterling silver '007' badges in the interior. Gun barrel embroidery has also been added to the upholstery and a special 'bond edition' start up screen appears on the model's touch sensitive infotainment system.
"Aston martin and James Bond are intrinsically linked in the minds of many of our enthusiasts and, indeed, owners, worldwide," said Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer. "In the run-up to the launch of the new film, Spectre, which sees Bond behind the wheel of the DB10, we are very happy to be able to celebrate the partnership with this superb limited edition DB9 GT collector's item."
