Aston Martin and Pinewood Studios revealed, a day before the new James Bond movie Spectre starts shooting, the car they have developed for 007. It’s called the Aston Martin DB10 and it offers more than a direct hint at the DB9’s successor.
Unveiled during a private event in London, Aston Martin DB10 is, for now, a one-off model designed only for the movie, apparently based on the Vantage. It is the name of the car that is most intriguing though, as it clearly suggests this is a preview of the model that will replace the DB9 over the next two or three years.
That is, of course, just a guess. Hard-core Aston enthusiasts are probably pointing out now to anyone who listens that when the DB9 came out it was the replacement for the DB7. So it’s not unusual for Aston to just skip a number like that. Fo all we know the DB9 successor could be called DB11!
More about the car will be revealed in due time, and as for the film, it is called SPECTRE which is apparently short for SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion – not a very imaginative name, but a Fleming original. To be released on November 6, 2015, the film stars Daniel Craig as Bond and Naomie Harris as Bond girl, with appearances from big names like Ralph Fiennes, Monica Bellucci, and Christoph Waltz.
