Aston Martin has created a new special edition of the DB9 to celebrate the firm’s appearance in the upcoming James Bond film Spectre, for which Aston has made a bespoke model called the DB10.

The DB9 GT Bond Edition is based on the DB9 GT, which is the last hurrah for the DB9 before its replacement, the DB11, arrives next year.

A total of just 150 examples of the DB9 GT Bond Edition will be produced. The mechanical specification of the car is shared with the standard DB9 GT, so power comes from a normally aspirated 540bhp 5.9-litre V12 engine. The 0-62mph time is 4.5sec and the top speed is 183mph.

The Bond Edition gets bespoke 20in 10-spoke gloss black alloy wheels, bright aluminium for the bonnet vents, grille and side strakes, a front splitter and rear diffuser made from carbonfibre, and special grey brake calipers.

Inside, there are sill plaques with the 007 logo and Bond-themed embroidery. A whole host of special accessories are also being offered by Aston to go with the car, including luggage and a special Omega watch with an Aston strap.

The car is available to order now priced from £165,000.

an ejector seat, machine guns and rocket launchers?

What happened to integrity? Where is the credibility? Is Aston really reduced to this?

Yes, the Bond connection is there, and in the past Aston has quietly profited from it. But a real premium brand wouldn't exploit in this kind of crass and unsophisticated way.

Aston must mean Basildon Bond, Brooke Bond or Samantha Bond as James Bond never ever drove a DB9.

athletic, well to do, that sort of thing, friends will think you have a serious self-confidence issue when you tell them you signed up for the Bond edition. If you're rich, fat and bald, people will think that Goldfinger bought MI6.

The Bond Edition gets bespoke 20in 10-spoke gloss black alloy wheels, bright aluminium for the bonnet vents, grille and side strakes, a front splitter and rear diffuser made from carbonfibre, and special grey brake calipers.

BARGAIN!!
