James Bond Aston Martin DB10 Spectre car sold for $3.5 Million

An Aston Martin DB10 created exclusively for the James Bond film Spectre has sold at auction for £2, 434, 500 ($3.5 million).

The car, one of only two “show cars” from the 10 made specially for the film, smashed its reserve price of £1 million ($1.43 million).

Made in Warwickshire, the model has a 4.7-litre V8 petrol engine and a top speed of 190 mph – but it cannot be driven on public roads.

The car was never used in any of Spectre‘s action sequences, as it was kept back as a display car for the London premiere at the Royal Albert Hall. It includes a special plaque signed by 007 actor Daniel Craig.

 

“Spectre – The Auction”, at Christie’s London King Street, saw 10 lots raise £2, 785, 500 for charities.

The car went under the gavel at Christie’s auction rooms in London on Thursday night and was knocked down to an unidentified buyer after “tense and exciting” bidding, according to observers.

The money raised is to be donated by Aston Martin to humanitarian aid organisation Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders).

A further 14 items continue in an online auction which ends next Tuesday.
