In the latest film of the series, Spectre, the indestructible DB5 is still there but for a minor role. At the end of the story, Bond retrieves his old car friend just rebuilt after the hardship suffered in Skyfall.
At the time of the supercars, a new car is necessary for the super feats of Bond. Aston Martin specially designed the DB10 for Spectre. Unveiled in December 2014, the DB10 is a concept car that has not been tested for public road use. Only ten cars were built but it is likely that the brand will give some following to this beautiful and already iconic coupe.
The automobile acrobatics of the DB10 are astonishing, including its handling in complete circles of very small diameter. The car does not omit to jump into the river, a sequence spectacular enough to be repeated throughout the Bond filmography. Eight units were destroyed for the purpose of filming.
Christie's is managing on February 18 in London a charity sale made of souvenirs from Spectre. The DB10 number 10 of 10 will be sold to benefit Médecins Sans Frontières. It is estimated £ 1M, lot 10. 10 of 10 had been preserved as a show car and was not equipped with the gadgets used in the film: machine gun, flamethrower, ejector seat.
SOLD for £ 2.43M including premium
