Aston Martin and James Bond have always gone hand in hand. Sure, Agent 007 may have driven plenty of other cars over the years, but an Aston has always been his constant throughout the years. In fact, Aston Martin is even building fans of the series a recreation of the iconic Goldfinger DB5, complete with all the gadgets it came with for Php 193 million.
Unfortunately, the Goldfinger DB5 recreation model is not street legal, not to mention limited to only 25 units. However, the British marque has revealed another Bond-related limited edition model that is more affordable and road legal called On Her Majesty’s Secret Service DBS Superleggera. No, we’re not kidding that is actually what Aston Martin calls it. Shortened to OHMSS, the special edition DBS Superleggera is inspired by the 1969 DBS which appeared in the original film of the same name and was built to celebrate the movie’s 50th anniversary.
Mechanically, the James Bond-inspired model is unchanged compared to the regular DBS. Power still comes from the same twin-turbo V12 which produces 725 PS and 900 Nm of torque.
That said, changes on the OHMSS DBS Superleggera are purely visual. For starters, the paint. The DBS is finished in the same shade of Olive Green as the original Bond car. It also features a new carbon fiber splitter, ‘aero blade’, and stunning diamond-cut wheels exclusive to the model. Meanwhile, the bespoke metal grill is designed to replicate the distinct feature of the DBS featured in the movie.
Inside, the cabin is trimmed in black leather with red contrast stitching. The seats feature an embroidered patch with the 007 logos and the words ‘OHMSS Edition’. The glovebox is trimmed in red, but unlike the 1969 DBS, it won’t come with a rifle…not from the factory at least. As a nod to 007, there is a special drinks case with four champagne flutes and space for two bottles.
Much like the Goldfinger DB5 continuation models, the OHMSS DBS Superleggera will be produced in limited numbers. Specifically, only 50 units will be built, with each one priced at around $397,000 (Php 20 million).
