The only Aston Martin DB10 to ever be sold to the public has been auctioned off for a cool $3.4 million.
The DB10, which was featured in the latest James Bond movie Spectre, was auctioned off for charity at the Christie’s auction in London. The final hammer price was £2,434,500 or approximately $3.4 million. This was almost double the expected selling price.
Ten DB10’s were created for Spectre. Eight of those cars were used for filming and the remaining two were kept for display and promotional purposes. Of those two, this was the only DB10 that will ever be sold to the public. The money raised by the auction of the Aston Martin DB10 will benefit Médecins Sans Frontières. MSF – or ‘Doctors without Borders’ – is a global humanitarian aid organisation that provides medical care and support to victims of armed conflict, epidemics and other disasters.
Aston Martin CEO Dr Andy Palmer had the following to say regarding the historic sale, “the DB10 is one of the rarest cars ever created. Only 10 will ever be made and this is the only one that will be made available for sale. It’s great to see this DB10 raising vital funds for Médecins Sans Frontières, it is a fantastic charity that we are delighted to support”.
