Bond DBS Superleggera Bound for New Zealand

To celebrate the forthcoming 25th James Bond movie, No Time To Die, Aston Martin have created 25 special editions of the DBS Superleggera and Aston Martin Auckland have secured one for New Zealand.

Aston Martin Auckland Brand Manager Steve Fulks says, “We are unashamed Bond fans, so to be able to secure one of the cars that features in No Time To Die is fantastic news; especially with only 25 of these cars in the world.”

No Time To Die, which will be released in November and once again stars Daniel Craig as James Bond, features no fewer than four Aston Martins: with the iconic DB5, the classic Aston Martin V8 and the forthcoming Valhalla mid-engined hypercar joining the DBS Superleggera in screen. 

Q by Aston Martin have developed the Special edtion DBS Superleggera alongside a No Time To Die Vantage V8 – which also pays homage to the Aston Martin V8 showcased in the 1987 Bond film The Living Daylights.

The DBS Superleggera 007 Edition features the same specification as the muscular DBS Superleggera featured in the upcoming film. Special Ceramic Grey exterior paint is twinned with the roof, mirror caps, splitter and diffuser featured in black tinted carbon fibre. Also unique to the 007 Edition are visually striking Gloss Black diamond-turned Y-spoke 21” wheels. This special edition also features a 007 fender badge, finished in chrome with a black enamel infill and stainless steel silver 007 foil applied to the rear spoiler blade. 

Inside, the cockpit of this DBS Superleggera is a dark, brooding, leather-clad environment with flashes of red detailing the outline of the seats. Subtle 007 branding can be found on the door cards, armrest buckle badge and on the rear sub-woofer cover. The car is finished with a sill plaque that recognises it is one of just 25 DBS Superleggera 007 Editions built. 

The second of the two models from Q by Aston Martin is the Vantage 007 Edition, which is limited to 100 units globally. Inspired by the original Aston Martin V8 which made its 007 debut in The Living Daylights in 1987 and also features in No Time to Die. The movie sees James Bond uncover the car from his personal lock-up in London. 

The sun visors of all cars will carry another subtle film reference in the shape of an embroidered radio station frequency – 96.60 (FM) – which 007 experts will recognise as the Russian police frequency Bond uses to aid his escape in The Living Daylights. It can also be delivered with a set of The Living Daylights inspired limited edition skis and ski rack.

 Q by Aston Martin delivers both carefully curated special editions such as these, as well as the opportunity for individual owners to embark on the creation of individual sports cars through bespoke personalisation via the Q by Aston Martin – commission service. 

The Limited edition No Time to Die DBS is due to arrive in the Aston Martin Auckland showroom later this year.
