Are you a James Bond nerd or a fan of Aston Martin? The car brand’s vehicles are an elusive sight on our roads, and they get plenty of attention wherever they pop up.

So, if coming up close and personal with 007’s rides is on your bucket list, you can finally fulfill that in “007 Special of Aston Martin Manila.” The automaker will be showing off several cars at Karrera Showroom located at 360 Corporate Woods Avenue in Alabang on October 9 and 10.

You’ll be able to catch the latest models like the Vantage and the DBX SUV alongside some very eye-catching heritage machines. There is a V12 Vantage S finished in a special “Q” color (Flugplatz Blue), as well as one of three DBS units and the only DB7 Volante in the Philippines.

Granted, the only Bond car present is the DBS (which made an appearance in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace), but seeing several Aston Martins in the metal is an entirely different experience as you’ll be able to appreciate the design and the intricate details put into every single vehicle. Hope you get to see the exhibit.
