Talking about the DB10 Daniel Craig, who plays Bond, says: “It’s unique and it feels right, and it looks like a James Bond car and it’s got a few secrets.”

One of the exclusively created and very special DB10 Bond cars built for the ‘Spectre’ film by Aston Martin will be auctioned off at the London auction house of Christie’s for charity.

The sale, in aid of Médecins Sans Frontières, will take place on 18th February and is expected to raise around £1m.

The auction celebrates the release of the 24th Bond film on Digital HD, Blu-ray and DVD with 24 special auction lots going under the hammer for charity, led by the Aston Martin DB10.

Production of the DB10 was limited to 10 examples, developed and hand-built by the designers, engineers and artisan craftspeople at Aston Martin’s Gaydon headquarters in the UK for the latest Bond film, Spectre.

The DB10 features a 4.7-litre V8 petrol engine and six-speed manual gearbox. It has an estimated top speed of around 190 mph. The car features an all carbon fibre exterior, while the interior has been handmade using fine luxury leathers, carbon fibre and aluminium.

Until now, Aston Martin had said that they would keep all the cars. This charity auction is a step back from that stance, and a real opportunity for someone with a cool million pounds plus to spare.

Aston Martin debuts its very unique DB10 for 007

An Aston Martin, which was created specifically for the new Bond film demonstrates the breadth of the brands’ bespoke capabilities.

Aston Martin together with EON Productions, the producers of the James Bond film franchise, unveiled Bond’s stunning new car, the Aston Martin DB10, on the 007 stage at Pinewood Studios.

The luxury British sports car brand confirmed that James Bond will indeed, once again, drive an Aston Martin in ‘Spectre’ – the 24th 007 film. On this occasion, it will be a model developed specifically for the film and built in-house by the brand’s design and engineering teams.

Led by Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman, the design team worked closely with the film’s director, Sam Mendes, to create the ultimate car for the world’s most famous spy.

Celebrating the great British brand’s half century with Bond, which started with the iconic DB5, the DB10 gives a glimpse to the future design direction for the next generation of Aston Martins.

Dr Andy Palmer, CEO of Aston Martin, said: “In the same year that we celebrate our 50-year relationship with 007, it seems doubly fitting that today we unveiled this wonderful new sports car created especially for James Bond.

“To be partnering once again with EON Productions is great news for this company and for everyone around the world that loves to see Bond at the wheel of an Aston Martin.

“I’m incredibly proud of everyone in the team at Gaydon who have brought this special project from concept to reality.”

Production will be strictly limited to 10 of the bespoke sports cars, developed and built by the designers, engineers and highly skilled craftspeople at Aston Martin’s Gaydon headquarters.

‘Spectre’ is due for general release on 6th November 2015.
