Aston Martin Launches DB9 GT Bond Edition, Only 150 Will Be Made

For decades, Aston Martins have been James Bond’s vehicles of choice and now the British brand returns the favor with a limited run model called DB9 GT Bond Edition.

Built in a limited run of only 150 units worldwide and priced at £165,000 ($252,180), the Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition celebrates the release of the Spectre movie with exclusive trim, equipment and accessories that mark the brand’s more than 50-year association with the famous film franchise.

Styling upgrades include a unique Spectre Silver paint, Aston Martin badges in sterling silver and discreet ‘007 Bond Edition’ exterior badging. These add to the standard DB9 GT’s ten-spoke gloss black diamond turned 20-inch alloy wheels, bright aluminum bonnet vents, side strakes and grille, carbon fiber front splitter and rear diffuser, and grey brake calipers.

The cabin also pays a subtle homage to James Bond with unique numbered sill plaques featuring the familiar 007 logo, gun barrel embroidery on the rear seat divider and a special Bond Edition start-up screen on the AMi II Aston Martin infotainment system.

These enhancements are in addition to the standard car’s unique fluted leather upholstery, Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and satin carbon fiber center console surround.

Power comes from the 6.0-liter V12 engine rated at 547PS (540hp) at 6,750 rpm and 620Nm (457lb-ft) of torque at 5,500 rpm. Mated to the Touchtronic II six-speed transmission with electronic shift-by-wire control system, the engine allows the DB9 GT Bond Edition to sprint from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.5 seconds and to reach a top speed of 183 mph (295 km/h).

The DB9 GT Bond Edition also comes with Bond-themed accessories including a finely-crafted 21-inch Globe-Trotter trolley case finished with an embossed leather luggage tag and an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m James Bond Limited Edition watch complete with a unique Aston Martin strap.
