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.
