The exquisite Aston Martin DB10, as you know, was built was one purpose only, and that was to be driven into a river by James Bond in SPECTRE. After that Aston sent the car on a tour of the world, and now they want to auction it off.
It is for a good cause though, as all the proceeds from the sale of the DB10 – and they expect them to be over £1 million – will be donated to Médecins Sans Frontières. To be auctioned by Christie’s on 18th February, the Aston Martin DB10 that goes under the hammer is one of the two “show” cars unmodified and used for display purposes, and it is signed by Daniel Craig.
Not that anybody bidding for this DB10 cares, but underneath that glorious carbon fiber skin, the car is a Vantage powered by a 4.7-litre V8 petrol engine mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. The interior is bespoke to this model, and features fine luxury leathers, carbon fibre and aluminium, as well as various SPECTRE and James Bond plaques. But none of that matters. It could have a two-cylinder engine and people would still buy it, just because it’s a Bond car, and a bit because it has Craig’s signature on it.
