To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Aston Martin will produce 50 $549,700 limited edition DBS Superleggera’s

Painted Olive Green to match the original 1969 Aston Martin DBS driven by Australian actor George Lazenby as Bond, the Superleggera takes road presence to a new level.

The limited-edition DBS Superleggera boasts a carbon fibre splitter, aero blade and unique diamond turned and forged wheels. A bespoke metal grille featuring six horizontal vanes, enhances the limited-edition car and replicates the distinctive feature of the DBS in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. The Superleggera's exterior is enhanced with body coloured cantrails and roof. Bearing commemorative side strakes and unique touches throughout, the car is every inch ‘007’.

On the inside, the DBS Superleggera is trimmed in pure black leather, cimplimenting the grey Alcantra, as in the original 1969 Aston Martin DBS. The cockpit has red accents inspired by the red trimmed glovebox in the original car, which held 007’s telescopic-sight rifle.

Andy Palmer, Aston Martin Lagonda President and Group Chief Executive Officer, said: "Aston Martin is synonymous with James Bond and the DBS from On Her Majesty’s Secret Service has provided great inspiration to the team tasked with creating this very special edition. This new DBS Superleggera will be an extremely distinguished ‘brute in a suit’, designed to capture the essence of the iconic DBS from the 1969 film but with a 5.2 litre twin-turbo V12, 715bhp engine!"

Aston Martin Vice President & Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman said: "Creating a James Bond special edition is always an exciting challenge as we work to create a car that embodies the legend of James Bond, and the original movie car. The DBS Superleggera is a muscular car that commands attention, but the Olive Green gives it a subtlety that belies the beast beneath."

The On Her Majesty’s Secret Service DBS Superleggera special edition is the latest in a series of 007 inspired Aston Martins, which includes the Goldfinger DB5 continuation and the 2015 DB9 GT Bond Edition.
