Like sportscars, crime-fighting gentlemen aren't made the way they used to. Batman used to be able to defeat the Penguin using his wit, experience and a gentle slap on the back of the head, but now, he's gone all Hollywood on us – guns, kevlar and NASA computer hacking skills. In our book, James Bond and his Astons suffer from the same problems!
Just take the new Vanquish, for example. That car is as modern as a zinc kitchen table and packed with more tech than the Apollo moon lander. And yet it will never be as iconic as the classic DB5, not when football players are the main customers.

A Polish car interior customizer called Carlex Design changed all that today, with a back-the-beginning redesign of the DB9. It's just the sort of project that convinces you wool sweaters and tweed jackets are way cooler than body armor.

Now working for Her Majesty’s Secret Service, the Aston Martin sports GT combines two dark tones of gray with very subtle gold accents. Alcantara is also used, along with a gray leather color borrowed from Porsche catalogues. Everything is tied together nicely with different patterns of gold thread, like a tailored suit made specifically to accommodate 007 – very sharp, but also comfortable.

The British have begun developing a brand new DB9, which might have engines from Mercedes AMG. But it's safe to say this old boy won't be retired from service any time soon!

"Just a moment. Three measures of Carlex one of Aston half a measure of Design. Shake it very well until it's interior ready, then add a large thin slice of alcantara & leather. Got it?"
said Bond, in a young Roger Moore accent. And the ladies just went nuts!

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
