Then we jump into the here and now with the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera. The car makes a perfect addition to the new double-O agent, Nomi. The car and the new character appeared in one of the first trailers for the Bond movie. The car is accompanied by the new agent, who lowers her sunglasses and tells Bond to “stay in your lane, get in my way, and I will put a bullet in your knee.” The Superleggera offers the perfect contrast to Bond’s cars in the trailer, signifying a possible changing of the guard.

Aston Martin issued 25 special edition 007 Superleggera cars. They come in an exclusive ceramic dark shade of gray, blending perfectly with the carbon fibre pieces. It is sitting on spectacular 21-inch rims, and there are very sutle 007 badges throughout.

The Q-lab did not play with the consumer model, and it really didn’t need any tweaks. With more than 700 horsepower coming from the V12 5.2-liter twin-turbo engine, the driver will rarely encounter any issues the car can’t outrun. These cars were sold a long time ago with a starting price of around half a million bucks. Imagine the price tag when they hit the Barrett Jackson auction circuit.
