Never been driven by the owner5.2-litretwin-turbo V12 engine that propels the car from 0-62mph in 3.2 secondsThe Aston Martin manufacturer's warranties naturally transfer to the new ownerAn unmissable opportunity to purchase a modern supercar respectfully paying its dues to the James Bond legacyIn 1969,the world was introduced to a new James Bond and in the opening credits ofOn Her Majestys Secret Service, with the characters face in shadow, it is theOliveGreenAston Martin DBS that takes centre stage. Replacing Sean Connery was no mean feat and the films producers might have given George Lazenby a Walther PPK and a dinner jacket but it is the Aston Martin that provides the continuity of 007s new transition. With the famous theme song blaring and twin exhausts burbling the DBS took the corners of the Estoril coast road like the grand tourer it truly is.Roger Moore might have driven the odd Lotus but James Bond belongs in an Aston. In April 2020,the new Bond filmNo Time to Diewill be released and has no fewer than four Astons in it, two modern models, the rebuilt DB5and,most notably,a welcome return tothescreen of the V8 Vantage Coupe, last seen falling foul of its self-destruct button inThe Living Daylights.The long partnership between Aston Martin Lagonda and the James Bond franchise has ensured that,not only is Britains motoring heritage promoted around the world on the big screen,but also the cutting-edgedesign and engineering of modern examples such as the Vanquish, DBS and the one-off DB10.As a company proud of its heritage and long associations,it was announced in May 2019 that a limited run of just 50 DBSSuperleggera 'On Her Majestys Secret Service'special editions will be produced to mark the 50-year anniversary of the release of the film. This is no mere homage but a fully up to date re-working, a marvel of design and engineering. The rakish body with its sculpted flanks isnaturallyfinished inOliveGreen, which provides an intriguing mix of understatement, style and menace, much like Mr Bond himself.The car boasts a 5.2-litre,twin-turbo V12 engine that is set low and as far back in the chassis as possible to optimise the centre-of-gravity and weight distributionand this remarkable power unitwill propel it from 0 to 62mph in a brisk 3.4 seconds and on to a top speed of 211mph. Detailed tuning of the V12 together with an exhaust strategy with active valves and quad tailpipes ensures that the car has a commanding and powerful sound, particularly in the more aggressive dynamicmodes, whilstretaining a level of refinement and civility that compliments its role as the consummate Super GT.Details includeacarbon fibre splitter, aero blade,unique diamond-turned and forged wheels andabespoke metal grille featuring six bright horizontal vanes, to replicate the distinctive front of the original 1969 DBS. The exterior paint surface is enhancedbybody-coloured cantrails and roof,commemorative OHMSS side-strakes and unique touches throughout. The interior is trimmed in pure black leather, accented by grey-blend Alcantara, as in the original 1969 DBS. The cockpit is accented in red, inspired by the red-trimmed glovebox in the original car, which held 007s telescopic-sight rifle.In May 2019,our vendor, an international businessman and Aston enthusiast bought the car as a planned retirement gift to himself. Nevertheless, at 81 he has not retired and neither has he driven the car, in his own words Once I drove the car,I knowthat Iwouldnt want to part with it.
