DB10 model was developed specifically for the film “Spectre”. Sold copy of this coupe will be the only one sold by the auction, although the British automaker has produced 10 copies. Most of these cars got to the shooting area, where they were destroyed, and only two cars were reserved for participation in various shows and presentations: one of these cars was taken by Aston Martin, the second one – by the film company Eon Productions, and the third copy with the autograph of the actor Daniel Craig, who played Bond was sold at auction.

Aston Martin DB10 is a car created on the basis of the production model V8 Vantage. The supercar features unique carbon-fiber bodywork and a special cabin which was manually assembled. Despite the fact that originally Aston Martin DB10 was created as a project for a film, the car which was sold at auction is completely functional. Under its hood there is a V8 engine with the volume of 4.7 liters, which allows the car to accelerate to 305 km / h. It is worth noting that the DB10 does not have a certificate to be driven on public roads, so it awaits the fate of the collection vehicle.
