The James Bond Aston Martin DB10 Hammered For $3.4-M+ At Christie’s London
The rare Aston Martin DB10 made for the latest James Bond film, Spectre, went under the auctioneer’s hammer at Christie’s in London last week.
The bidding was lively before a final bid of an amazing $3.4-M+ (£2,434,500).
The buyer now owns a piece of automotive and entertainment history; the only Aston Martin DB10 to be made available at a public sale.
Celebrating the iconic British sports car maker’s 50 years with Bond, starting with the DB5, the DB10 gives a look of the future design direction for the coming generation of Aston Martins.
Production of the DB10 was limited to 10 examples of the bespoke sports car developed and hand-built by the designers, engineers and artisan craftspeople at Aston Martin’s Gaydon HQs in the UK for Spectre.
8 of the DB10’s were modified for filming, 2 of those produced were kept back as show cars, and the DB10 auctioned was one of them.
The money raised by the auction of the Aston Martin DB10 will benefit Médecins Sans Frontières, also known as “Doctors without Borders”; a global humanitarian aid organisation that provides medical care and support to victims of armed conflict, epidemics and other disasters.
“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” said Aston Martin CEO, Dr Andy Palmer.
Have a terrific week.
