Premiere car-makers Aston Martin have unveiled a very special edition Aston Martin DBS (James Bond’s current ride of choice) which the brochure describes as being anointed with “bespoke Carbon Black metallic paint especially formulated with a subtle metallic twist to create a deep rich patina”. The car also supports new alloy wheels.
Inside the car will feature upgraded stereo gear (a Bang & Olufsen Beosound will come as standard) and Obsidian Black leather seats.
The special edition Aston will be released in 2010 with a 5% hike in price tag but there is no news on how many the company will be offering to the public.
If all goes according to plan, the new Aston Martin will be ready in time for the expected shooting date of James Bond 23 – which as recently quoted by Daniel Craig at the stage door of his Broadway show A Steady Rain, would be late 2010.
Could James Bond be seen on screen behind the wheel of this stunning, sleek new Aston Martin?
