ASTON Martin has announced a special-edition version of its DBS Superleggera coupe, built to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and priced from $661,007 plus on-road costs.

 

Set to touch down in Australia in the fourth quarter, only 50 examples of the special edition will be made, with Australian allocation subject to orders and availability.

 

Finished in Olive Green paint, the DBS Superleggera pays homage to the original 1969 DBS driven in the movie by James Bond, played by Australian George Lazenby in his only appearance in the iconic role.

 

The limited-run model features a carbon-fibre splitter and aero blade, and comes with uniquely styled 21-inch forged alloy wheels.

 

Its grille is finished with six horizontal vanes as a tribute to the 1969 DBS, while commemorative side strakes are fitted and the body colour is applied to the cantrails and roof.

 

Inside, the DBS Superleggera is trimmed with Pure Black leather accented by grey blend Alcantara – like the original – while red accents are found throughout the cockpit.

 

A plaque is found on the door sills, commemorating the special edition and each example’s build number.

 

Owners will have the option to purchase a bespoke drinks case that sits in the boot and opens via a metal clasp to reveal a felt-lined interior designed for two bottles of champagne and four champagne flutes.

 

No changes have been made to the DBS’s powerplant, a 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 capable of 533kW at 6500rpm and 900Nm from 1800-5000rpm, driving the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

 

The OHMSS DBS Superleggera is the latest in a line of Bond-themed Aston Martin models, such as the 2015 DB9 GT Bond Edition and the Goldfinger DB5.

 

Aston Martin Lagonda president and chief executive Andy Palmer said the special-edition DBS Superleggera was designed to capture the essence of the 1969 Bond original.

 

“Aston Martin is synonymous with James Bond and the DBS from On Her Majesty’s Secret Service has provided great inspiration to the team tasked with creating this very special edition,” he said.

 

“This new DBS Superleggera will be an extremely distinguished ‘brute in a suit’, designed to capture the essence of the iconic DBS from the 1969 film but with a 5.2 litre twin-turbo V12, 715bhp engine!”

 

Through the first four months of the year, Aston Martin has sold a total of 37 vehicles, down 15.9 per cent on the 44 registrations it had to the same point last year.
