He teamed up with his pals at Aston Martin to design the coolest Christmas gift we’ve ever seen, an ultra limited-edition DBS Superleggera with custom features, like the wheels seen in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service & an exclusive blue on blue color scheme. The 715-horsepower V12 is cool, too. Listed as one of Neiman Marcus’ annual “Fantasy Gifts,” only 007 of these supercars will be built.
