Bond gets chased by some baddies driving Alfa Romeo 159s in the latest flick Quantum of Solace. That’s all we’ll say for now, but if you haven’t seem it yet, c’mon it’s JAMES BOND.

To celebrate this, the coolest car company that doesn’t sell to U.S. (if you don’t count a handful of sports cars) has released a special edition of the sedan. The 159 Limited Edition features a lowered suspension, Brembo brake callipers, sports dials, black leather upholstery. The Alfa 159 Limited Edition comes in a Carbonio black metallic paint and sits on darkened 19” alloy wheels. All of this will add a hefty £3,000 (about $4,500) to the 159 TIs £23,000 ($34,000) base price.

For that kinda of cash, some speed would be nice. Unfortunately the car comes with the standard 1.9-liter diesel engine that delivers 150 hp. But hey, at least you’ll look good when getting passed on the motorway.

The response to the 8C has encouraged Alfa to reverse an earlier decision and build a limited number of convertibles, starting in 2009.
