Christie’s auction house has announced it will be auctioning what it claims to be the only Aston Martin DB10 offered for sale to the general public. Used by Daniel Craig in his role as the famous British spy in the latest James Bond film Spectre, the car was designed and built with no plans by Aston Martin to put it into production.
But next month the Bond-themed charity auction will feature the ultra-rare coupe, which is sure to attract strong interest from well-heeled Bond fans and collectors of one-off cars like this one. The Aston Martin DB10 was designed especially and exclusively for use in Spectre, and while most of the models used in filming were modified, two of the cars were unaltered and used as display models.
The winning bidder – expected to fork over between $2 million and $3 million CAD - will also receive a plaque signed by Bond actor Craig. Among the organizations that will be beneficiaries of the proceeds from the charity auction, Médecins sans Frontières and the United Nations Mine Action Service.
