Aston Martin has introduced the limited edition of its new DB9 GT Bond Edition that delivers world-class grand touring and hand-built excellence. The luxury vehicle is priced at R3.6 million.
Only 150 units have been manufactured worldwide and South Africa has been allocated three.
“We have received a great deal of interest around these vehicles, with two being delivered to their new owners imminently,” said Grant Dryden, GM Aston Martin South Africa.
“Due to the limited production run, this is definitely a must have for any car collection.”
Building on these exceptional foundations, the new Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition adds even greater levels of exclusivity by virtue of its limited edition build run along with a host of carefully considered trim, equipment and accessory additions that celebrate the brand’s more than 50-year association with the famous film franchise.
The new Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition is distinguished by a subtle yet elegant selection of styling additions inside and out.
The 6.0-litre V12-engined grand tourer features unique Spectre Silver paint; sterling silver Aston Martin badges front and rear; and discreet ‘007 Bond Edition’ exterior badging.
These features build on the elegant styling of the DB9 GT which includes unique ten-spoke gloss black diamond turned 20-inch alloy wheels; bright aluminium bonnet vents, side strakes and grille; carbon fibre front splitter and rear diffuser, and grey brake callipers.
Inside, the DB9 GT Bond Edition continues its subtle homage to James Bond with unique numbered sill plaques featuring the familiar 007 logo; gun barrel embroidery on the 2+2’s rear seat divider and a special Bond Edition start-up screen on the new model’s AMi II touch-sensitive Aston Martin infotainment system.
These embellishments add to the car’s already luxurious interior environment which includes unique fluted leather; an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and a satin carbon fibre centre console surround.
The all-alloy, quad overhead camshaft, 48-valve 5,935 cc front mid-mounted V12 is mated to the proven rear mid-mounted Touchtronic II six-speed transmission with electronic shift-by-wire control system. It carries the luxury sports car from rest to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds, and on to a top speed of 295km/h.
