ASTON MARTIN DB9 GT BOND EDITION

◾Limited edition celebrates over 50 years of Aston Martin and James Bond
◾New car previews the release of Spectre, the latest James Bond film
◾Based on new DB9 GT – the most powerful DB9 to date wîth 547 PS

2 September, 2015, Gaydon: For more than half a century Aston Martin has been the sports car of choice for the world's most famous spy, James Bond. Now, the luxury British brand is celebrating the release of Spectre wîth the launch of the strictly limited DB9 GT Bond Edition.

Limited to 150 examples worldwide, the highly desirable model is based on the recently launched DB9 GT. Designed to offer the best of what DB9 can be, the DB9 GT delivers world-class grand touring and hand-built excellence.

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 wîth a host of carefully considered trim, equipment and accessory additions that celebrate the brand's more than 50-year association wîth the famous film franchise.

Subtle styling additionsThe 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 calipers.

Inside, the DB9 GT Bond Edition continues its subtle homage to James Bond wîth 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 §teering wheel and a satin carbon fibre centre console surround.

Powerful appeal

The DB9 GT Bond Edition's 6.0-litre V12 engine is capable of generating 547 PS at 6750 rpm, and 620 Nm of torque at 5500 rpm.

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 wîth electronic shift-by-wire control system. It carries the luxury sports car from rest to 62 mph in 4.5 seconds, and on to a top speed of 183 mph.

The all-round independent double wishbone suspension continues to deliver secure handling while the three-stage Adaptive Damping System (ADS) offers distinct Normal, Sport and Track modes for the broadest possible breadth of dynamic characteristics.

Elegant Accessories

Besides its unique interior and exterior features, the DB9 GT Bond Edition offers a suite of elegant Bond-themed accessories to complement the model's creation.

Presented in a finely-crafted 21' Globe-Trotter trolley case finished wîth an embossed leather luggage tag, the collector's car also includes an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m James Bond Limited Edition watch complete wîth a unique Aston Martin strap.

Welcoming the debut of the DB9 GT Bond Edition, Aston Martin CEO Dr Andy Palmer said: 'Aston Martin and James Bond are intrinsically linked in the minds of many of our enthusiasts and, indeed, owners, worldwide.

'In the run-up to the launch of the new film, Spectre, which sees Bond behind the wheel of the DB10, we are very happy to be able to celebrate the partnership wîth this superb limited edition DB9 GT collector's item.'

Dr Palmer added: 'I'm sure the 150 owners worldwide who succeed in acquiring one of these exceptional sports cars will, like the rest of us, delight in seeing Spectre when it is released later this year.'

The new DB9 GT Bond Edition is available to order in markets around the world from today, priced at £165,000.
