Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition lands in Australia

October 30, 2015

Aston Martin is launching a new special edition DB9 GT to celebrate the release of the new James Bond film Spectre, which hits local cinemas on November 12.

Based on the now 11-year-old DB9, the DB9 GT Bond Edition comes with unique ‘007 Bond Edition’ logos, special sterling silver Aston badges, and a unique Spectre Silver exterior colour.

Inside are a set of subtle 007 sill plates, while the rear seat divider features a gun barrel embroidery. Starting the car also prompts a unique Bond Edition start sequence on the latest AMi touch-screen interface.

Under the bonnet sits the same 5.9-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine as the regular model, howling out 403kW of power at 6750rpm, and 620Nm of torque at 5500rpm. It can propel the British beast from 0-100km/h in just 4.5 seconds, and on to a top speed of 295km/h.

The engine is matched to a Touchtronic II six-speed automatic transmission with rear-wheel drive. Drivers can select between three different damper settings, including Normal, Sport, and Track modes for finer versatility.

As a bonus, customers of the Bond Edition also get an exclusive 21-inch Globe-Trotter trolley case and embossed leather luggage tag, as well as an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra James Bond Limited Edition wrist watch.

Just 150 examples of the DB9 GT Bond Edition will be made, with just five available in Australia. Local prices starts at $435,007 (excluding on-roads). Deliveries will kick off after November 12. An example of the car will make an Australian debut at the VIP film premiere on November 4.
