Daniel Craig Designed an Exclusive 007 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

No automotive nameplate is intertwined with the James Bond franchise like Aston Martin. The British automaker has been featured in at least a dozen 007 films in the last half-century. Likewise, five-time Bond star Daniel Craig has been the face of the franchise since his debut in Casino Royale. So, it seems fitting that the British actor recently designed one of the most exclusive Aston Martin releases of all time. The best part? The ultra-limited-edition 007 ride is available at Neiman Marcus just in time for this holiday season.

Naturally, only seven 007 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera will be offered. All feature a tasteful, reserved, and very British ink-blue exterior with a color-matched leather interior. The wheels are identical to those on the DBS Superleggera James Bond Special Edition released earlier this year to commemorate the 50th anniversary of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. To be clear, this latest, special-edition release is only an appearance package. There’s no ejector seat, and don’t expect it to fly or travel underwater. It boasts the same performance — 715 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque courtesy of a twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 — as the flagship DBS Superleggera. Honestly, with a top speed north of 200 miles per hour and a 0-62 mph time of 3.4 seconds, how much more do you need?

In the words of the inimitable Billy Mays, “But, wait — there’s more!” The seven-of-a-kind gift package includes airfare to London to watch your own 007 Aston Martin roll off the assembly line. Neiman Marcus also throws in a limited-edition, platinum Seamaster Dive 300M Omega timepiece, another icon of the Bond franchise, with a custom engraved backing. How else are you going to keep track of those 0-60 track times? Buyers also receive two tickets to the world premiere of the 25th Bond film, No Time to Die, plus airfare and lodging for the event.

The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is one of nine exclusive luxury gifts in this year’s Neiman Marcus Christmas Book. For 2019, the list of fantasy packages also includes a unique Tokyo getaway and private dinner with streetwear icon Jeff Staple; a VIP food tour of Italy with Chef Massimo Bottura; and a whirlwind private jet vacation to five of the world’s most exciting destinations, including Morocco’s Atlas Mountains and Sweden’s Icehotel. A portion of every purchase — 12% in the case of the 007 DBS Superleggera — from the Christmas Book will become a donation to The Opportunity Network.

The 007 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is on sale now. With only seven examples in production, at this point, they’re likely all spoken for. If you missed out, take heart. There’s always a Stitch Fix subscription, which is kind of the same thing.

When Kia approached us to fly out to California's beautiful Napa Valley to get our hands on their new all-electric EV9 SUV and see what it could do up close and personal, we booked our flight faster than the time it took to uncork our favorite bottle of cabernet to celebrate the occasion.

We really wish these compact, Korea-exclusive RVs and campervans were available stateside
Lightweight, compact, and tidy, these three campers are everything we'd want in a road-ready rig

Here in the U.S., RV'ing feels like an exclusively American pastime. But Europeans, Asians, and Australians have enjoyed caravanning and campervanning since, well, almost as long as caravans and campers have existed. Much of the world, however, eschews the "bigger is better" design ethos of most luxurious 'Merican-made motorhomes. They instead like to keep things lightweight, compact, and tidy, traveling with everything they need and nothing they don't. Korea, in particular, knows what's up when it comes to minimalist RVs and campervans. Case in point: These three camper models we really wish were available stateside.

Three Korean-built campers we really wish they'd sell stateside
Kia's Bongo is a cab-over pickup that's been a ubiquitous workhorse truck in South Korea for more than 20 years. It serves as the perfect base for this compact custom camper build. At roughly 21 feet long, it would classify as a Class B camper here in the U.S., with exactly enough living space to fit a wet bath, sleeping quarters, and a compact kitchen setup. It's remarkably similar to many mid-size campers we've seen stateside. But we appreciate a few thoughtful design touches that help it stand out, including a heated shoe storage area, an insect-repellent sliding screen "door," and a toilet that swivels to provide a little extra legroom in the very tight bathroom. There's also a large cabinet that opens to the outside for quick indoor/outdoor access to gear and small kitchen appliances.

Aston Martin released three new cars on February 12, 2024, in a show of force and determination that underscores the 111-year-old motorcar company's heritage and rightful place among the world's most respected race cars. In addition to unveiling Aston Martin's AMR24 Formula 1 race car for the 2024 F1 racing calendar, the company also revealed the Vantage sports car and Vantage GT3 race car.

Powered by a 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo motor producing 656 horsepower and a maximum of 590 ft-lb of torque, the Vantage sports car can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and has a top speed of 202 mph. The new sports car is the most driver-focused and fastest Vantage since Aston Martin first used the name for a special edition of the Aston Martin DB2 in 1950. Therefore, the theme of Aston Martin's introduction of the new Vantage sports car is "Engineered for real drivers."
