James Bond's legendary charisma and finesse with the ladies can't be appropriated. His car, on the other hand, just might be attainable by playing a few hands of Texas Hold'em at PokerStars.com.
The poker room is teaming up with Aston Martin Racing to offer its players the chance to win the first Aston Martin DBS to roll off the production line next year. The car is the same model driven by the famous British secret agent in the latest Bond film "Casino Royale." The winner will be the first person in the world to own the limited-edition automobile.
Starting the afternoon of Dec. 9, all PokerStars.com players are eligible to win by competing in online tournaments. Satellites will run daily with buy-ins ranging from 10 to 10,000 Frequent Player Points.
In addition to the vehicle, the poker room is offering $100,000 in cash and prizes for players placing second through to 199th. The total event prize pool is estimated to be more than $330,000.
Details of the new Aston Martin DBS model are under wraps, but a company spokesman describes the automobile as a link between the elegance of the DB9 road car and the power of the DBR9 race car.
