JAMES BOND will be pleased to hear that SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO will be available as factory-installed equipment with a lifetime subscription on ASTON MARTIN's V8 Vantage and DB9 vehicle lines. The cars with SIRIUS will be available starting in AUGUST. ASTON MARTIN plans to add SIRIUS to all of its models in the near future. Upon hearing this news, former ASTON MARTIN owners were reportedly shaken, not stirred.
SIRIUS also announced TODAY that CHRYSLER GROUP is increasing installations of SIRIUS receivers from 40% in the 2007 model year to over 70% of 2008 models. SIRIUS will be included as standard in most models as part of the premium and mid-level price classes, and will be 100% standard on Sebring, Astro, DODGE Challenger and Nitro, and JEEP Grand Cherokee and Commander models.
