The Aston Martin DB10—the sexy, sleek supercar created just for the latest Bond film, “Spectre”—is being auctioned off next month. The DB10 being sold is one of ten cars created specifically for the filming of “Spectre,” and the lucky buyer will likely have to shell out more than $1 million for the chance to own this extra-special British sports car.
That’s no surprise given the exclusivity of this particular DB10. Eight of the ten Aston DB10 vehicles built for “Spectre” were modified for filming, but this particular car is one of two unmodified “show cars” that was kept in pristine condition. It’s also signed by Daniel Craig. Like all of the DB10s assembled at Aston Martin’s Gaydon facility in the U.K., it uses a 4.7-liter V-8 engine and a six-speed manual gearbox, a combo that’s good for a top speed of around 190 mph. Unfortunately, the auction house notes this car is not road-legal, so you won’t be able to test that performance for yourself.
All proceeds from the charity auction held by Christie’s will be donated to Médecins sans Frontières (aka Doctors without Borders), and plenty of other Bond-themed items will be auctioned off as well to celebrate the release of “Spectre” on DVD and Blu-ray.
If you’re not able to swing the auction price but love the look of the DB10, don’t worry—Aston Martin says that the Bond car is meant to preview the styling of its next production sports car. Expected to be called the DB11, this new model will debut later this year and will likely use Aston’s new 5.2-liter, twin-turbo V-12 engine.
Stay tuned for more news from Aston, and keep an eye out for the DB10 to be auctioned off in London on February 18.
