One of two remaining Aston DB10s used in the James Bond film Spectre has been sold; money raised goes to Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) charity
18 February 2016

The Aston Martin DB10 driven by Daniel Craig in the James Bond film Spectre has been sold at auction for £2,434,500 this evening.

The DB10, one of two remaining out of the ten examples made exclusively for use during the filming was donated by Aston Martin for the charity auction at Christie's in London. It is the only one of the remaining cars that will ever be offered for sale by the Gaydon-based car company.

An anonymous buyer paid £2,100,000 for the car, well above the £1.5m estimate that had been placed on it ahead of the auction. With buyer's fees taken into account, the final sum is £2,434,500, although auctioneer Christies will also donate its fee to charity once its costs have been taken into account.

Proceeds from the sale will go to Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).

The DB10 was the star lot out of ten Bond-related items being auctioned for charity. The second-most expensive item was the Day of the Dead costume worn by Craig at the start of Spectre. It went for £98,500.

In total, the ten lots raised £2,785,500 for MSF and other charitable causes.

Our Verdict

007's Aston Martin DB10

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

That great. I pretty certain none of them still didn't get destroyed. That all I got to say. I believe the DB11 imagines were release yesterday if I not mistaken?

    Awful driving position aside, drop-top Huracán handles UK roads well. It's more dynamically rounded than its rangemates, but lacks rivals' handling bite

    Its predecessor may have been a bit limp, but the Porsche Panamera 4S Diesel is crushingly rapid and suitably luxurious
