James Bond’s Aston Martin DB10 that was used in the latest Bond movie Spectre has been auctioned for $3.8 million. The price is well over the estimate of $1.4 million that was originally predicted. The proceeds from the auction has been donated to the Medecins sans Frontieres or Doctors without Borders. We hope the owner enjoyed a Martini-shaken, not stirred after writing the check.
Only 10 examples of the Aston Martin DB10 was made by the British manufacturer for the movie. Most of them were modified by the crew to film the movie’s stunts and two were left untouched. Of them, one of them has been auctioned. It is the first DB10 that has been sold to the public. The car has also been exclusively signed by the man who portrays James Bond- Daniel Craig.
The Aston Martin DB10 features a carbon-fiber body. It is powered by a 4.7 liter V8 engine and has a 6-speed gearbox from the AM V8 Vantage. Although the DB10 uses production-based parts, it is not possible to drive this car in public roads as it not safety certified or homologated. However, whoever brought this car would probably be rich enough to own some private tarmac, or buy some time on one.
Aston Martin will unveil the successor to the DB10 in a few days time at the Geneva Motor Show. The new car, christened DB11 has already been revealed via a spy shot by a twitter user. You can check out the picture of the Aston Martin DB11.
