Aston Martin’s luxurious story begins in 1913, when Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford imagined a British brand of luxury racing cars that fit right in line with English stolidity. Headquartered in Gaydon, Warwickshire, the very first Aston GT was conceived at the hand of Ian Callum and Henrik Fisker. The excellence of its technique and high quality of Aston Martin’s craftsmanship succeeded in making it one of the most iconic GTs in the world.
In 2004, Aston Martin launched the DB9 – an unsettling beauty. The manufacturer was indeed able to make the DB7 line evolve in the style department by giving it just the right touch of aggressiveness. One gaze is enough to bring out the DB9’s savage aspects. With a streamlined front side underneath a glass bubble, the wide radiator grill shaped like a “guard’s hat” houses the bulk of the inner workings including a noble V12 5.9 straight out of the Vanquish line. In just 4.5 seconds, the Aston Martin DB9 can go from 0 to 100 km/h.
No surprise then that Aston Martin took advantage of the release of the latest James Bond film Spectre in order to launch a limited edition of its DB9 GT, the “Bond Edition”. With only 150 cars produced, this series includes features such as Spectre Silver paint, discrete 007 Bond Edition exterior logos, and a brand new Bond Edition interior start-up touchscreen complete with an Aston Martin infotainment system. Invincibility strikes again!
