Only 10 units were produced for the film, hand-built by Aston Martin’s team of designers, engineers, and craftsmen. The DB10 up for auction is one of two that was not modified for the film.  Christie’s claims it’s the only DB10 that’s been released for sale to the public and that it includes a plaque signed by Daniel Craig himself.

All proceeds from the DB10 sale will be donated to Doctors Without Borders.

The “Bond” Inspired Aston Martin Vantage

Aston Martin has recently confirmed that the design of the DB10 sports car (used exclusively for the latest James Bond film, Spectre) will inspire the next-generation Aston Martin Vantage.

Consequently, the new Aston Martin Vantage will share more similarities with the DB10 than the company’s latest new sports car, the DB11, will. With that being said, the company’s chief executive Andy Palmer said that styling cues from the DB10 will be visible throughout the British automaker’s next-generation range of vehicles.

“You’ll see the DNA for sure. It’s not the same—the DB10 was done exclusively for Bond. But you will see that ‘predator’ type look going forwards. The best way I can express it is that my mother will be able to tell the difference.”

Details about the next-generation Vantage remain undisclosed, but many believe there’s a good chance it will feature a turbocharged engine.
