Aston Martin DB10: James Bond SPECTRE Car Sold for $3.4 Million
James Bond’s SPECTRE car, an Aston Martin DB10, has sold at auction for $3.4 million.
The DB10, one of only two “show cars” from the ten made especially for the movie, smashed its reserve price of $1.5 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.
SPECTRE – The Auction, at Christie’s London King Street, saw 10 lots raise $4.2 million for charities.
A further 14 items continue in an online auction which ends on February 23.
Other lots included the “Day of the Dead” costume worn by Daniel Craig in SPECTRE.
Aston Martin has been associated with James Bond since the 1964 film Goldfinger, which featured a DB5.
The auctioned DB10, hand built at Aston Martin’s UK headquarters in Gaydon, was signed by Daniel Craig.
Most of the DB10s were modified for use in the filming of SPECTRE but two were left unmodified for display.
SPECTRE is reported to have destroyed $36 million worth of cars during shooting.
