No Time To Drive

Aston Martin’s bespoke division releases two special edition cars to celebrate James Bond’s 25th outing on the silver screen.

Aston Martin has been synonymous with the James Bond franchise ever since Sean Connery drove the DB5 in the 1965 film Goldfinger. To celebrate the release of No Time To Die, the British marque unveiled two exclusive new models – the Vantage 007 Edition and the DBS Superleggera 007 Edition (pictured).

The former pays homage to the V8 piloted by Timothy Dalton in The Living Daylights (1987) while the latter is Daniel Craig’s main ride – featuring a 5.2-litre, twin-turbocharged V12 engine that packs the highest torque of any road-worthy Aston built – in the latest release that’s on screens this November.

Both are extremely limited. The Vantage has a production run of 100 units and the DBS Superleggera, just 25 cars. If you’ve ever fancied yourself as the notso-secret agent, the Vantage and DBS Superleggera 007 Editions can be yours for £161,000 (S$294,000) and £279,025 respectively. Of course, this is before taxes and the other costs associated with owning one of these babies in Singapore.
