Nobody does it better…

That’s what James Bond fans, those who have the money that is, are saying about the British spy’s latest creation. The special agent for Her Majesty's Secret Service has traded in his Walther PPK pistol for a designer's pen.

Now to be clear we’re talking about the man who plays the current 007, Daniel Craig. That caveat aside, Craig worked with Aston Martin to design a special, custom Aston Martin DBS Superleggera.

This special Aston Martin (AML.L), awash in a paint color dubbed ‘inky blue,’ is one of the select items added to Neiman Marcus's uber-exclusive Fantasy Gifts list for 2019. For the grand price of $700,007 (did you catch it?) you can buy this Aston Martin for the holidays.

Aston’s special coupe pumps out 715-hp from its twin-turbocharged 5.2-liter V-12 engine. Think of the DBS Superleggera as a souped up version of Aston’s standard bearer coupe, the DB11. [For more on the DB11, check out our review here.]

Now the standard DBS Superleggera goes for $307,820, so the premium for the Bond DBS is substantial. But - it does comes with a special Bond-themed platinum Omega (SWGAY) Seamaster Diver 300M wristwatch, as well as two tickets to the premiere of the latest Bond film, No Time To Die.

Only seven special DBS Superleggeras are up for grabs. And because it’s the holidays, Neiman Marcus will donate 12% of the sales price from each of the Aston Martins to The Opportunity Network charity, via the company's Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation.

For those 007 fans with the means, it’s the perfect holiday gift. Who says the world is not enough…
