Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition

04 September, 2015

In celebration of Aston Martin’s long-standing association with James Bond, and to mark the release of the new film SPECTRE, 150 DB9 GTs have been placed on special reserve for the creation of individual DB9 GT Bond Edition models.

Each Limited Edition comes equipped with an exclusive specification, featuring unique 007 badging and bespoke Bond themed accessories, including an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m James Bond Limited Edition watch with a unique Aston Martin strap and a 21” Globe-Trotter trolley case.

Limited to 150 examples worldwide, the highly desirable model is based on the recently launched DB9 GT, a more powerful and updated version of the DB9.

The 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.

The rear seat divider feautures a gun barrel embroidery and the new model’s AMi II touch-sensitive Aston Martin infotainment system has a special Bond Edition start-up screen.

These embellishments add to the car’s already luxurious interior environment which includes unique fluted leather; an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and a satin carbon fibre centre console surround.

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 with 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.
