The 25th James Bond film No Time to Die should see a November 2020 release, if the Covid-19 situation improves across the world, and Aston Martin has created two special edition models to celebrate the upcoming 007 movie and its long-standing relationship with the franchise. The new movie will star not fewer than four Aston Martins: the iconic DB5, a 1980s-era V8 Vantage, and a modern DBS Superleggera, and the yet-to-be-launched Valhalla. The latest limited-edition Aston Martins to get the special James Bond treatment are the Vantage and DBS Superleggera. Developed by the Q by Aston Martin personalization department, both the 007 editions plenty of unique features and design updates inspired by the world’s most secret agent.

Starting with the more powerful DBS Superleggera, it wears a special ‘Ceramic Grey’ paint job which is accompanied by black-tinted carbon fiber mirrors, CF splitter, CF diffuser, and a rear CF ‘Aeroblade II.’ In addition to that, the DBS Superleggera 007 Edition gloss black, diamond-turned 21in wheels and 007 badges on the front fender and rear spoiler. On the inside, the cabin is decked out in dark leather accented with red detailing. More “007” logos can also be found inside. It is limited to just 25 examples and is mechanically identical to the standard variant, which means it is powered by the same 5.2-liter V12 that churns out 715hp.
