Since it is a special edition car, there will only be 80 of them manufactured. They will sell for $100,000 each.
This design has been most popularized by James Bond in “Goldfinger” and skyrocketed from there. Collectors and aficionados are obsessed with the look.
The car will be in showrooms by summer 2019.
