Celebrating the 50th Anniversary
Aston Martin has launched a special edition of its DBS Superleggera that honors the famous James Bond movie On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. It’s been 50 years since the movie came out. The car is aptly named On Her Majesty’s Secret Service DBS Superleggera. There should be no confusion. The car has numerous exterior and interior elements that are unique.
It comes in a beautiful Olive Green paint which echos the car used in the film. The model also gets diamond turned forged wheels, a carbon fiber splitter, carbon fiber aero blades, and a special blacked-out grille. The interior of the car is fitted with beautiful black leather with red contrast stitching. It also gets red accents on the dash, doors, center console, and seats. The car also gets a special Bang & Olufsen BeoSound system. The powertrain was not touched.
Aston Martin’s CCO, Marek Reichman, said the Olive Green paint helps give the DBS Superleggera a subtlety that the car doesn’t have otherwise. He also expressed his excitement at Aston putting out this car. “Creating a James Bond special edition is always an exciting challenge as we work to create a car that embodies the legend of James Bond, and the original movie car.”
Aston will build only 50 of the cars. The price for this level of luxury, performance, and cinematic tie-in will not come cheap. The company set the price at $381,556.
