Since we’re British car enthusiasts in this household, you can bet we’ll be grabbing the new James Bond car! As soon as we scrape together this month’s mortgage, that is.
Yes, you, too, can be the proud owner of an Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Limited Edition, being launched by Aston Martin in celebration of their 50-year partnership with James Bond and the release of “SPECTRE,” in theaters Nov. 6, 2015.
They’re only making 150 of these sleek cars, so put your orders in early. The model is based on the recently launched DB9 GT, but with some Bond additions, of course. On the exterior, the car has unique SPECTRE silver paint and discreet ‘007 Bond Edition’ badging, while inside it has unique numbered sill plaques featuring the 007 logo, gun barrel embroidery on the rear seat divider, and a special Bond Edition start-up screen.
The car also comes with some Bond-themed accessories, including a 21” Globe-Trotter trolley case with embossed leather luggage tag and an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m James Bond Limited Edition watch, complete with an Aston Martin strap.
The new DB9 GT Bond Edition is available to order in markets around the world, priced at £165,000. If my currency exchange calculator is correct, that translates to about $250,000 U.S. dollars.
