The rare Aston Martin DB10, as seen in the James Bond film Spectre, is to be sold at a charity auction in February

One of 10 Aston Martin DB10s made for the Bond film Spectre is to be sold at auction. 

The car has been signed by Daniel Craig, and is one of two 'show cars' that remained unmodified for use in the film. It has been used solely for display and publicity purposes. 

The DB10 was made by Aston Martin specifically for the Bond film. The example set to be sold is the only one that will be offered to the public, at a Christie's auction in London. The sale, which is set to coincide with the release of Spectre on DVD, will take place on 18 February. The carbonfibre-bodied DB10 is expected to fetch around £1million, with all the proceeds going to the Médecins Sans Frontières charity. 

Performance figures from Aston Martin are vague, with only details of the model's 4.7-litre V8 engine, 'around 190mph' top speed and details of the production process released by the brand. A disclaimer also states that the car "is not homologated, certified or approved for use on any public roads and has not undergone the production processes used for production cars." 

Aston Martin also notes that the car is the first to receive a platinum award from the brand's Aston Martin Works Assured Provenance programme.

007's Aston Martin DB10

This is Bond’s first bespoke company car, but is it also his best?

the fact that car "is not homologated, certified or approved for use on any public roads' will prevent it being used as such in the lightly regulated territories most of the likely bidders call home.

That the DB10 will become an authentic movie icon like the DB5 rather than what it is which is an example of product placement and one which is highly unlikely, years from now, to have unseated BMT 214A from its well-deserved seat in the automotive hall of fame.
