Aston Martin pays tribute to the sixth installment of James Bond

The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera special edition celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the James Bond movie ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’.

“On Her Majesty’s Secret Service,” the sixth film in the popular Bond series, featured a sublime 1969 Aston Martin DBS, which was obviously driven vigorously by George Lazenby, who played the role of Agent 007 at the time. Given that the British manufacturer works regularly with the Bond film franchise, it was logical that the 50th anniversary of the feature film should be done with a new car!

The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera seems to serve as a regular guinea pig for the creation of special editions at Aston Martin these days. With its 5.2 litre V12 putting out 712 horsepower, it is much more powerful than the DBS of the time, which was powered by a 4.0L inline-six developing about 300 horses, according to the chosen technical specifications.

The special edition “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” is covered with an olive-green body colour, and is lined with a set of unique gigantic wheels. Inside, the upholstery is made of black leather and is complemented by alcantara elements of the same gray tone found in the 1969 DBS. The glove box is accentuated by a red finish, recalling the component featured in the film, which stored the secret agent’s weapon.

Only 50 copies of this special edition of the DBS will see the light of day. And the price of each unit is estimated at $ 500,000 Canadian.
