One of the most impressive movie cars in the recent years, the Bond-only Aston Martin DB10 was never meant to reach a private buyer’s hands, but one unit has managed to find its way into an auction.
Built in just 10 units specifically for the latest film of the James Bond franchise, Spectre, the specific Aston Martin DB10 is one of the only two working show cars which were left unmodified and used for display purposes.
Based on the V8 Vantage chassis, the DB10 features a unique all-carbon bodywork and a bespoke, handmade cabin. The purists will be happy to know that the 4.7-litre V8 engine is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox because apparently our favorite secret agent prefers to change gears the traditional way.
The car will be the only DB10 to be offered to private owners and will come -for the first time- with Aston Martin’s platinum authentication award. This certificate means that the DB10 has undergone a digital scan for future reference and that -surprise- it is the real deal.
In case the certificate is not enough, the car will also bear the autograph of James Bond himself, Daniel Craig. The Aston Martin DB10 will be auctioned on February 18, at Christie’s King Street auction house in London with the proceeds donated to Médecins Sans Frontières.
