Aston Martin will auction Spectre DB10 for charity
Aston Martin has announced it will auction James Bond’s DB10, as seen in Spectre, with the proceeds going to charity.
It is a rare opportunity to own the famous Bond car, specially developed for 007’s latest outing. In a break with tradition, Aston Martin will sell one of the 10 hand-built DB10 ‘Show Cars’ – the first ever Bond car sold to a private buyer – at the upcoming charity auction for Medicins Sans Frontieres on the 18th February.
The DB10 is loosely based on Aston Martin’s next-generation V8 Vantage S. It has the same 4.7-litre, naturally aspirated V8, with a six-speed manual gearbox. The car features a longer wheelbase, wider track and a tweaked grille, giving it that distinctive Bond look. Top speed is 190mph, with 0-60mph reached in 4.7 seconds.
The exterior is made of carbon fibre parts and the interior adds extra finesse, with leather, carbon and aluminium surfaces. The car comes with a platinum award from the Aston Martin Works, confirming its provenance, and includes a digital scan held in a secure archive for future verification.
‘Spectre– The Auction’ takes place on the 18th February at Christie’s King Street auction house in London, with Bond’s DB10 expected to raise over £1 million for charity.
