The Complete History of James Bond's Aston Martins

On Her Majesty's Secret Service Aston Martin DBS

Year: 1968
Type: Movie Car

The film, released in 1969, featured a 1968 Aston Martin DBS in a relatively minor role when compared with the ill-fated Mrs. Bond’s Ride, an amazing ice-racing Mercury Cougar. Still, its unmistakable styling suited the second Bond, George Lazenby. It was stately, not too flashy, and had a one-off specially made glovebox. Actually, Lazenby was more like that glove box than the car, as he only appeared in the one Bond film. Unfortunately, soon after OHMSS, Aston Martin suffered another bout of financial trouble and didn’t appear in another Bond franchise film until the ‘80s as a result.
