James Bond's DB10 set for auction

James Bond's DB10 set for auction

The first Aston Martin to be built exclusively for a James Bond film is to go under the hammer.

Auctioneers at Christie's in London expect the DB10 - signed by Daniel Craig - to fetch more than £1 million.

It was one of two show cars that toured the world for auto shows and film promotions of Spectre, which hit screens last October.

One sticking point could be the fact it is not road legal, since it was designed for either filming or promotion. But this is not expected to deter potential buyers, as whoever the lucky bidder is could retrofit the model to comply with road safety laws anywhere in the world.

The DB10 could be a sign of things to come from Aston Martin, as it prepares to replace the DB9 with the DB11 sports car.

Just 10 examples were produced, making the DB10 extremely rare. The money raised from its sale on February 18 will be donated to the MŽdecins Sans Frontires charity.
