Aston Martin is celebrating the 50th anniversary of classic James Bond movie On Her Majesty’s Secret Service with a special-edition DBS Superleggera. The model sports a unique olive green skin reminiscent of the 1969 Aston Martin DBS which starred in the film, as well as a number of unique design cues taken from the vintage motor.
The Secret Service package includes a custom grill with six horizontal blades and diamond-turned forged wheels that act as a homage to the wire-spun design of the late ’60s DBS. Aston Martin updates its 2019 DBS Superleggera with a lashing of carbon fiber accents, a new splitter and an aero blade, as well as swathing the interior in black leather and grey Alcantara with a red carbon fiber trim.
The limited-to-50 DBS Superleggera is a continuation from Aston Martin’s 007 homage series, which previously saw a Goldfinger DB5 edition of the 2015 DB9. As per usual, the Aston Martin comes equipped with a 715 BHP 5.2-litre V12, capable of 0-60 MPH in just 3.4 seconds. In case this rare edition wasn’t special enough, Aston Martin will also offer its lucky customers the opportunity to include a drinks cabinet to feature inside the car’s trunk, which will hold two bottles of champagne and four flutes.
