Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition: The elegance of the greatest spies
Its name is Bond, or more precisely Aston Martin DB89 GT Bond Edition. A sports car specially designed to celebrate the 50-year association between Aston Martin and the famous James Bond film franchise. Elegant and powerful, discover the dreamed-car that all spies want to have by their side.
On the elegance’s secret service
Few months from the new James Bond “Spectre”, the Aston Martin DB89 GT Bond Edition will transport you to the heat of the greatest action movies from the very first look.
Every detail has been carefully worked to remind the James Bond universe, from the Spectre Silver paint to the finishing of the seats. Based upon the styling of the Aston Martin DB9 GT, the Bond Edition shows stylish additions inside and out.
So you could discover here and there the Aston Martin and “OO7 Bond Edition” badges, thoroughly affixed on the body. The predominant silver lurks through its bright aluminium bonnet vents, its strakes and lateral grille and also its carbon fibre splitter, both elegantly enhanced by its gloss black diamond turned 20-inch alloy wheels.
Every spy would envy its luxurious interior with fluted leather and the Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel or the special Bond Edition AMi II touch-sensitive start-up screen on the new model’s Aston Martin infotainment system. There again, nothing is left to chance with the rear seats on which is carefully embroidered the gun barrel, and the 007 logo repeatedly placed in the cabin.
The style in not enough
Beyond its admirable style and its distinctive charm, the Aston Martin Bond Edition and its 6.0- litreV12-engined has no cause to be envious of the self-titled movies.
The Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition mid-mounted engine with its 48-valve 5,935 cc is coupled to a mid-mounted six-speed transmission that will carry you from 0 to 62 mph in 4.5 seconds. Bond itself could not resist to the envy of pushing the 547 PS to their top speed of 183 mph.
But all heroes have also the right to a maximum of security and comfort. There again the all-round independent suspension and the three-stage Adaptive Damping System (ADS) will allow you to imitate the most famous secret agent in complete peace.
For your eyes only the Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition is sold with elegant Bond-themed accessories as a finely crafted Globe-Trotter trolley case and an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra James Bond Limited Edition watch with a unique Aston Martin strap.
For the Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition to be yours you would have to find one of the 150 limited examples and spend the amount of 165.000£ but after all, you only live twice!
