Aston Martin is not only known for its superior vehicles, but also for supporting world's most famous spy, who is indeed James Bond. And for one more time the luxury British brand offers something incredible under the name of DB9 GT Bond Edition.
This masterpiece, limited to only 150 units, is especially crafted to blend the best of DB9 and the excellence of Aston Martin's craftsmen. And building on this foundation, the Bond Edition vehicle comes with even greater levels of excellence and exclusivity of the additional trim that is especially designed to celebrate brand's 50th anniversary of companionship with the well-known film franchise.
The DB9 GT Bond Edition comes with incredible features as for the inside and the outside. First of all, the machine is distinguished in a special Spectre Silver paint and includes the special badges and of course the "007 Bond Edition" exterior badge.
Furthermore, the bold appearance is enhanced with unique ten-spoke gloss black diamond turned 20-inch alloy wheels and aluminum bonnet vents, side strakes and grille. And of course, there are numerous carbon-fiber elements.
The inside of the DB9 GT Bond Edition continues the stylish exterior affair with unique components and styling.

Furthermore the cabin is geared with fluted leather and Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and satin carbon fiber centre console.
Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition is powered by 6.0-liter V12 unit that generates a total of 547 hp (303 kW) at 6750 rpm and 650 Nm of torque at 5500 rpm. Nice.
