It has been revealed that Aston Martin will auction off one of the ten DB10 models it created for the latest James Bond film Spectre.
Details around the auction are virtually non-existent but it’s been confirmed that the Aston Martin DB10 won’t be legal to drive on the street. As a result, it will have to permanently reside in a collection and potentially make occasional appearances at race tracks.
Powering the DB10 is the same naturally-aspirated 4.7-litre V8 engine as the British firm’s V8 Vantage model. While the DB10 shares its underpinnings with the Vantage, it features a completely bespoke exterior and interior.
While the DB10 was produced specifically for use in the new James Bond film, the company has confirmed that its design will influence future models, most notably the next-generation Vantage due out in 2017 or 2018.
Before the new DB10 arrives, the successor to the Aston Martin DB9 will be launched and aptly named the DB11. It is predicted to make use of a turbocharged 6.0-litre V12 engine that is not only more powerful than the existing naturally-aspirated engine but also more efficient.
