Aston Martin’s New DBS Superleggera Pays Homage to the 50th Anniversary of OHMSS

Another 007-inspired Aston Martin has been launched by the British luxury carmaker. The latest edition of DBS commemorates the 50th anniversary of the 1969 James Bond film, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.

Taking inspiration from Felice Bianchi Anderloni’s car coachwork construction technology Superleggera, the new DBS looks sweet in olive green, and what make it even better are the several upgrades that it brings.

Custom metal grille can be seen on the front of the car, there are also some OHMSS marks on the body, while the interior presents black leather with gray blend Alcantara and red accents. Only 50 DBS Superleggera OHMSS will be produced by Aston Martin, each of which will come with “a bespoke designed drinks case.”

As for the price, the car is pegged at £300,007 or equivalent to $380,000, with deliveries starting in the fourth quarter of 2019. Under its skin, the special edition model is basically the standard DBS Superleggera.

The OHMSS is powered by a 5.2-liter V12 engine that pumps out 715 horsepower at 6500 rpm and 664 pound-feet of torque at 1800-5000 rpm. The acceleration figures are 3.6 seconds from 0-62 mph and 6.7 seconds from 0-100 mph.

If pushed to the limit, the new DBS Superleggera will reach a top speed of 211 mph. The vehicle won’t be equipped with a spy gadget, though – if that’s what you’re looking for. So you won’t find ejector seats, hidden guns, and the likes.

The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera On Her Majesty’s Secret Service Edition is only available in the UK. In case you wonder why there’s an additional £7 in the price of the car, it’s a marketing gimmick by the British automaker.
