Aston's On Her Majesty's Secret Service DBS Superleggera Honors the Movie

British carmaker Aston Martin released details Wednesday of a limited edition vehicle to mark the 50th anniversary of the James Bond 007 spy thriller On Her Majesty's Secret Service. On Her Majesty's Secret Service - the sixth film in the official 007 saga - featured actor George Lazenby in his only stint as the British secret agent.

That means power from a 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 engine making 725 ps and 900Nm of torque. The collaboration is between Aston Martin and EON Productions, the company that produces the James Bond films with Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios.

Aston Martin Lagonda president and chief executive Andy Palmer said the special-edition DBS Superleggera was created to capture the essence of the 1969 Bond original.

As a means to celebrate the occasion, the British carmaker announced on Wednesday (May 22) the launch of a special edition of one of the current stars of its lineup, the DBS Superleggera, complete with all the features needed to be a proper nod to the auto of decades ago.

This is the third in Aston's series of 007-inspired rides - with the Goldfinger DB5 and a DB9 GT Bond edition coming before it.

The OHMSS DBS Superleggera sports a carbon fibre splitter, CF aero blade and unique diamond turned and forged wheels.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of James Bond film, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, 50 On Her Majesty's Secret Service DBS Superleggera special edition cars will be sold. It's an unusual feature both because it sends a mixed message about drinking and driving, and because Aston didn't think to include a martini shaker in a 007-themed vehicle. Meanwhile, the bespoke metal grill is created to replicate the distinct feature of the DBS featured in the movie. The seats feature an embroidered patch with the 007 logos and the words "OHMSS Edition".

"This new DBS Superleggera will be an extremely distinguished "brute in a suit", created to capture the essence of the iconic DBS from the 1969 film, but with a 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12!" Red accents are also part of the interior dress-up, along with special door sills identifying the auto as a 007 machine. Buyers of the auto can select a bespoke designed drink case that fits into the boot space.
