Celebrate James Bond’s ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’ With This DBS Superleggera

Hollywood loves its legendary vehicles, especially when they’re as much of a showpiece as the film they’re lopped in with. After years of trusted partnership with Metro Goldwyn Meyer and EON Productions — the duo behind the famed James Bond franchise — Aston Martin’s iconic DBS Superleggera has been selected to commemorate the 50th anniversary of one of the companies’ greatest films.

In 1969, the DBS’ mid-century sibling graced the set of the International Superspy’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, a cinematic spectacle illustrating Bond villain ‘Blofeld’ in his relentless attempt to hold the world’s greatest assets at ransom. Much like its predecessor, the modern-day DBS Superleggera boasts the original vehicle’s iconic Olive Green paint job and chrome adornments — harkening back to the legendary platform that was piloted by 007 as he strove to deny Blofeld’s villainous plot. The poetic evolution of the car makes it all the more appealing for the film’s 50th anniversary, administering the company’s 715-horsepower, 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 engine, accented black leather and gray Alcantara interior, and carbon-fiber aerodynamic pieces to bring it into modernity. As a final nod toward the 1969 DBS, the newly-adapted variant will include its very own champagne flute (and bottle) holder, allowing for up to four specialized glasses (and two bottles) to be transported alongside the driver. Only 50 examples of the DBS Superleggera “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” Edition will be made, with each variant clocking in at $380,000.

Purchase: $380,000
