For more than half a century Aston Martin has been the sports car of choice for the world’s most famous spy, James Bond. The luxury British marque is celebrating the release of Spectre with the launch of the strictly limited DB9 GT Bond Edition.  Limited to 150 examples worldwide, the highly desirable model is based on the recently launched DB9 GT. Announced on the 11th September 2015, most of the early production of the DB9 GT were built to James Bond spec in order to get cars into dealers to support exclusive screenings and events to support the opening of the film.
