So Aston Martin must have thought: hey, let's make a proper car for this one, shall we? And they did, but not from scratch, as the Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond is, as the name suggests, based on Aston's most powerful DB: the GT, packing 547 horsepower.

Truth be told, we're not that into special editions, but since the DB9 GT is involved along with Agent 007, we'll make an exception this time only.

The emphasis is on special edition here, but also limited, as the Aston Martin DB9 Bond will only be built in 150 units, available worldwide.

That being said, let's look at the car's peculiarities. The 6.0-litre V12-powered GT features one of a kind Spectre paint, assorted with sterling silver Aston Martin badges up front and at the rear along with subtle ‘007 Bond Edition’ emblems spread on the outer shell.

The car sits on a set of ten-spoke gloss black diamond turned 20-inch alloy wheels and was embroidered with a carbon fibre front splitter and rear diffuser plus grey brake calipers. Now, where did they install that retractable machine gun?

On the inside, lucky and wealthy customers are greeted with numbered sill plaques featuring the 007 logo, accompanied by gun barrel embroidery on the rear seat divider and a distinctive Bond Edition start-up screen.

Under the hood, things remain unchanged. The DB9 GT Bond edition is put into motion by the same V12 powerplant good for 547 horsepower at 6750 rpm and 620 Nm of torque at 5500 rpm.

As usual, Aston Martin didn't miss the chance to throw some fancy accessories in the mix, like for example a Globe-Trotter trolley case and an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m James Bond Limited Edition watch.

We kept the price for last, but now we must reveal it: £165,000, or around $252,155 at current exchange rates.
