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.

Aston Martin Confirms Third Hypercar Code-Named the 003
Aston Martin 003 Hypercar Concept

The last half decade has seen Aston Martin reinvigorate the quintessential British marque. Gone is the malaise of Ford’s ownership. In its place, we find a healthy, powerful, badass selection of automobiles that have not only captured an audience but also brought back the idea of a poster car with the company’s upcoming Valkyrie and Valkyrie AMR Pro. Yet, Aston Martin wants to build more mid-engined hypercars which is why it’s just announced a third, as yet unnamed, hypercar to sit alongside its Norse-named brethren.

Not much information was given in Aston Martin’s press release other than the internal project name: the 003 (Valkyrie is 001 and the Valkyrie AMR Pro is 002). The 003 will have DNA rooted in the Valkyrie’s technology, concept, and ethos, but unlike the Valkyrie, which makes use of a naturally aspirated hybrid V12 built by Cosworth, the 003 will use a turbocharged hybrid engine.

How to care for your EV battery and reduce range anxiety
Protect your investment with these handy EV battery care tips

Electric vehicle batteries can be the source of a lot of anxiety -- most of which centers on their storage capacity. This can include range anxiety, and when a battery's performance degrades past a certain point, EV battery replacement costs.

There are also environmental concerns to consider. When your vehicle's juice box does eventually kick the bucket, EV battery recycling is an option and one that is becoming more and more efficient as time goes on. But with proper EV battery care, you can fend off the lithium reaper and keep your car's original power supply in place for years longer than it otherwise would be.

RM Sotheby's Lost & Found Ferrari collection

Recently, we reported about a herd of Italian thoroughbreds that were lost in time, spending fourteen years from 1990 to 2004 in a Floridian barn. Then, after Hurricane Charley laid waste to the Ferraris' farmhouse, the Italian stallions were moved to a weatherproof warehouse across from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where they ironically laid motionless for nearly the next twenty years until the precious few who knew of this buried treasure decided to finally set these cars free in what RM Sotheby's deemed 'The Lost & Found Collection.'  With some incredibly captivating backstories, these 20 Ferraris were expected to bring in a king's ransom, and no one could have predicted that this collection would bring in enough to buy the whole kingdom.
