Check Out Aston Martin's New James Bond-Inspired Vantage And DBS Models
When it was announced that No Time To Die would be delayed once again due to the pandemic, director Cary Joji Fukunaga was adamant that he’d resist the temptation to fiddle with the final edit. Whether or not he’s stayed true to that promise, we do not know.
Aston Martin has been very busy over the past few months, however. Synonymous with Bond since 1964’s Goldfinger, the British car manufacturer has just announced that it will be releasing two new 007 editions of their Vantage and DBS models.
The Vantage will come in at £161,000 while the DBS will cost you £279,025, both available to order now in time for a spring 2021 delivery. You should get in there quick though – only 100 examples of the Vantage are being created, and a mere 25 DBS Superleggeras are making it off the production line.
The Vantage is inspired by the V8 from 1987’s The Living Daylights, which also features in No Time to Die (you can see it in the trailer). There are some great Bond-related touches: a Russian radio frequency, as used by Timothy Dalton in the film, embroidered on the sun visors, alongside other etchings of cross hairs and classic Bond weapons. The DBS Superleggera, meanwhile, boasts 21-inch bespoke gloss black wheels and ‘stainless steel silver 007 foil’ on the rear spoiler, as well as 007 badges and plaques inside the car. Check out images of both below.
