Aston Martin DB10, which was exclusive for the James Bond starrer SPECTRE, was aunctioned at Christie’s in London at a staggering price of £2,434,500 (Around 23.82 Crores). It is the only DB10 to be made available for public sale. Production of the DB10 was strictly limited to 10 models of the bespoke sports car which was 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.
Aston Martin CEO Dr Andy Palmer. “The DB10 is one of the rarest cars ever created. Only 10 will ever be made and this is the only one that will be made available for sale. It’s great to see this DB10 raising vital funds for Médecins Sans Frontières, it is a fantastic charity that we are delighted to support”. Eight of the DB10’s were modified for filming, but two of those produced were kept back as show cars for display purposes only and the DB10 auctioned is one of them. The money raised by the auction of the Aston Martin DB10 will benefit Médecins Sans Frontières. Just so you know, MSF - or ‘Doctors without Borders’ – is a global humanitarian aid organisation that provides medical care and support to victims of armed conflict, epidemics and other disasters.
Celebrating the great British brand’s half century with Bond, which started with the iconic DB5, the DB10 gives a glimpse of the future design direction for the next generation of Aston Martins. For those asking, the Aston Martin DB11, which is all set to have its world premiere at the 2016 Geneva Auto Show on March 1, takes designing cues from the DB10. ‘James Bond Spectre – The Live Auction’, was a unique collection of 10 lots, a further 14 are available in the online sale, which continues until 23 February, celebrating the release of the 24th Bond film on Digital HD, Blu-ray and DVD.
