Do you love the world’s most famous spy, James Bond, and his taste in cars? Well, now you can drive like him in the newly unveiled Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition. This strictly limited edition, meant to celebrate the upcoming movie “Spectre,” comes to us in a press release issued today by the English automaker.
“Aston Martin and James Bond are intrinsically linked in the minds of many of our enthusiasts and, indeed, owners, worldwide,” said Dr. Andy Palmer, Aston Martin CEO, in the press release. “In the run-up to the launch of the new film, Spectre, which sees Bond behind the wheel of the DB10, we are very happy to be able to celebrate the partnership with this superb limited edition DB9 GT collector’s item.”

To distinguish this DB9 from the rest of its family are interior and exterior additions that are mostly 007-centric. On the outside is a body finished in a unique Spectre Silver paint that is adorned by sterling silver Ason Martin badges. Discreet 007 Bond Edition badging can also be found on its exterior.
Inside, the appropriate DB9 GT Bond Edition badging continues with numbered sill plaques, embroidery on the rear seat divider and a special Bond Edition start-up screen on the infotainment center.
While you won’t find machine guns and missiles under its hood, you will find a 6.0-liter V12 engine that’s capable of 539 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque. Mated to this massive engine is a rear-mounted Touchtronic II six-speed transmission, which will launch the car from 0-62 mph in 4.5 seconds, topping out at 183 mph.
If the car isn’t enough, Aston Martin is also offering a slew of Bond-themed accessories that complement the car. This includes an Omega Seamaster Aqua 150m James Bond Limited Edition watch with a unique Aston Martin strap.
Only 150 examples of the DB9 GT Bond Edition will be created, each priced at £165,000 (approx. $252,ooo USD at today’s exchange rate).
