Hype: James Bond’s Aston Martin DB10 From “Spectre” Is Going To Auction


If for nothing else, the one thing that is always associated with James Bond is a cool car.  The makes and models have changed a few times along the way.  Those may remember James having a fling with Lotus and a brief dalliance with BMW but the one brand that Bond always comes back to is Aston Martin.  This held true in the latest Bond film Spectre (I saw it and loved it by the way) and one of the stars of the film was a concept-esque Aston Martin dubbed the DB10.  The DB10 is an amazing one-off designed specifically for the film and produced by Aston Martin themselves.

Several cars were built for filming; some used for stunts like jumping and others for high speed chasing.  Two were held back strictly for display purposes and the world famous auction house Christie’s is putting one of them on the block as part of a James Bond themed auction event.  This particular car will be the only DB10 officially approved for sale to the public by Aston Martin and is expected to fetch between 1.5 to 2 million dollars!

That is a lot of scratch for a car meant to be a display piece.  Christie’s doesn’t mention if the DB10 in question actually drives or is capable of driving at practical speeds but I suppose who ever buys this car is more interested in having a piece of James Bond history rather than a car to drive around.  I figure anyone who could afford to pay over a million dollars for movie memorabilia probably already has more than a few drivable cars in their garage already.

Are you a James Bond fan?  If you could afford it, would you be willing to pay over a million dollars for this DB10?  Let us know in the comments or tweet to us at @MotorworldHype.
