The car has the signature of Daniel Craig, the actor who play 007 in the latest film of the popular franchise.
The minimum bid for the Aston Martin DB10 is £1 million. The car, which is part of the special “Spectre-The Auction” event, will be put up for auction at the prestigious Christie’s auction house on 18 February 2016. The auction is timed to coincide with the release on DVD of the 24th Bond film.
This Aston Martin DB10 boasts of a 4.7-litre V8 petrol engine, which has a top speed of 190 miles per hour. The downside: You cannot drive it on public roads.
The Aston Martin brand has been associated with the James Bond franchise since 1964 with the release of Goldfinger featuring a DB5. For Spectre, the bespoke two-door coupé was introduced by director Sam Mendes and producer Barbara Broccoli as “the first cast member” during the film’s official press launch in December 2014.
The ten DB10 coupés were designed and developed specifically for the film – eight were featured in the movie while two were used for promotional purposes. According to Aston Martin, the car gives a peek into the design direction of the company’s next generation of automobiles.
