If you have money to burn, treat yourself to this ultimate in James Bond gadgets: a stunning Aston Martin DBS Superleggera designed by the latest 007, Daniel Craig. There's no word on what Daniel Craig did to "design" this particular car, but the inky-blue beast is being offered in a run of just seven units, and each costs $700,007. Every example comes with a limited-edition, all-platinum Omega Seamaster Diver 300m.
The pricey stocking-stuffer is one of the latest "Fantasy Gifts" offered in the annual Neiman Marcus Christmas Book. Bond's wheels join other presents for tony tastes including a Neiman Marcus-edition Moët & Chandon vending machine for $35,000, a Versace punching bag for $1,550, and a more affordable Bey Berk cigar humidor for $165.
The DBS Superleggera is powered by a 5.2-liter twin-turbo V-12 that delivers 715 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. It doesn't include any fun gadgets like a passenger-seat ejector, but it'll help you get away from baddies with a zero-to-62-mph time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 211 mph.
The Omega timepiece features a hand-engraved case back, and the bundle also includes tickets to the world premiere of the latest Bond movie, No Time to Die. Neiman Marcus states that 12 percent (or a minimum of $330,000) of the total proceeds from the Aston will be donated to The Opportunity Network, a business-matchmaking organization—one that appears to have no ties with Spectre, as far as we can tell.
