Aston Martin DB10 from James Bond move Spectre sold at auction

THE Aston Martin DB10 featured in the latest James Bond movie Spectre has been sold for an astonishing £2,434,500 at a charity auction.

The car, the only one available for public sale, was hand-built specifically for the film.

All the money from the sale at Christie's in London will go to the international aid organisation Medecins sans Frontieres.

Aston Martin made a total of 10 DB10s for Spectre and eight were used in the 24th Bond movie with two being kept as show models.

Dr Andy Palmer, Aston Martin chief executive, said: "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 Medecins Sans Frontieres, it is a fantastic charity that we are delighted to support."

Aston Martin has a 50 year relationship with Bond films which started with the DB5 in Goldfinger and although specially created for Spectre, the company says the DB10 gives a hint for the next generation of models to come from its headquarters at Gaydon in Warwickshire.

The car was sold at a special event in which 10 lots from Spectre went under the hammer raising almost £2.8million. The buyer of the DB10 has not been named.
