Roll out in one of these and let your inner James Bond come to play

Aston Martin’s relationship with the James Bond movie franchise stretches back more than 60 years. It’s the longest relationship between a carmaker and a Hollywood movie franchise.

The Aston Martin Vantage and the flagship Aston Martin DBS Superleggera are the beneficiaries of Aston’s new James Bond-inspired special edition models. Each model comes with exclusive touches and a smattering of Bond-inspired details.

What’s so fancy about the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera 007 Edition?

The DBS Superleggera 007 Edition, in particular, comes with all sorts of exclusive touches that you’ll typically find in the catalog of Aston Martin’s personalization division, Q by Aston Martin. The exterior is dressed in Ceramic Gray, a dark shade of gray that comes with a rough finish, similar to, well, unpolished ceramic.

The exclusive paint and the visual effect it conveys works well with all the carbon fiber panels that Aston Martin used on specific sections of the DBS Superleggera.

The roof, mirror caps, front splitter, rear diffuser, and rear wing are all made from the good stuff.

Down south, the DBS Superleggera 007 Edition sits on a set of fancy 21-inch wheels finished in an equally fancy gloss black look.

“007” logos can be found on the fender badges and rear spoiler, and in case those aren’t enough, there’s more of them inside the cabin, which, by the way, is dressed to the nines in dark leather with red accents and red trim on the outline of the seats.

Does the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera 007 Edition come with turbine jets or submarine-like capabilities?

Last we checked, the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera 007 Edition did not come with turbine jets and it also can’t move underwater, much to our dismay. There are no engine upgrades either, though that’s expected. Rarely does Aston develop a special edition model with engine upgrade programs, and it’s no different with the DBS Superleggera 007 Edition.

Not that there’s an issue with that. The DBS Superleggera is already powered by a 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V-12 engine that produces a whopping 715 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque.

It’s the most powerful series-production Aston Martin in the company’s long and esteemed history, and it performs like one, too. It only takes 3.6 seconds for the DBS Superleggera to accelerate fro 0 to 60 mph and the supercar’s top speed maxes out at 211 mph. James Bond would be proud.

What about any secret weapons?

Unfortunately, there aren’t any secret weapons concealed inside the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera 007 Edition. There are no rocket launchers, oil squirters, or spinning blades coming out of the wheels.

How much scratch should we expect to spend?

The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera 007 Edition will only be limited to 25 units. It’s limited for a reason, and it’s priced that way, too. If you are interested in a DBS Superleggera 007 Edition, you’re going to need to spend at least £279,025. That converts to around $365,000, making it almost $50,000 more expensive than a standard DBS Superleggera. That’s a big price difference, but it comes with the territory of owning a car with the (fictional) approval of Britain’s super spy.

If you are interested in buying one, Aston Martin is already taking orders. Deliveries are expected to start in the first quarter of 2021.

Final Thoughts

I don’t need to be convinced to like any special edition model that comes out of Aston Martin. It’s impossible. That sentiment holds true with the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera 007 Edition. Everything about it is to die for. From the unique paint to the all-black interior with the red stitching, the DBS Superleggera 007 Edition is the kind of car that I only see in my dreams where I also happen to be a dashing suited-up super spy.

  • Leave it
    • No engine upgrades
    • Expensive
    • Probably impossible to score at this point

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
