The Aston Martin DB10 - the car which will accompany James Bond on his 24th big-screen outing, Spectre - has again been shown in an official promotional film from the film's producers.
The DB10 is one of two main cars which will feature in the film - the other being the Jaguar C-X75.
Announcing the tie-up last year, Aston Martin chief executive Andy Palmer revealed that the DB10 would be made in a run of 10 units, all of which are expected to be used in the film's production rather than be offered for sale. "The most exclusive DB ever," is how Palmer described it. "It's 10 cars total run - let's hope James Bond doesn't wreck them all!" he added.
The 10 units have been handmade at Aston's Gaydon headquarters, where the car has been designed and engineered.
Announced by director Sam Mendes and producer Barbara Broccoli as part of the film's official pre-launch activities on the 007 Stage at Pinewood Studios hosted by EON Productions, the DB10 continues the 50-year partnership between Bond and Aston Martin, which stretches back to 1964's Goldfinger.
While the DB10 will not make production as it is in a limited run, the model is also understood to show off Aston's new look, which should translate onto the brand's road cars by 2016. It most closely previews the DB9 replacement.
Mendes said: "We have worked together to design this new car. It's a thing of beauty - and you'll be able to see what it can do."
An Aston Martin statement read: "The luxury British sports car brand is delighted to confirm that James Bond will once again drive an Aston Martin in Spectre. On this occasion, it will be a model developed specifically for the film and built in-house by the brand’s design and engineering teams.
"Led by Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman, the design team worked closely with the film’s director, Sam Mendes, to create the ultimate car for the world’s most famous spy.
"Celebrating the great British brand’s half century with Bond, which started with the iconic DB5, the DB10 gives a glimpse to the future design direction for the next generation of Aston Martins."
Palmer added: "In the same year that we celebrate our 50-year relationship with 007, it seems doubly fitting that today we unveiled this wonderful new sports car created especially for James Bond.
“To be partnering once again with EON Productions is great news for this company and for everyone around the world that loves to see Bond at the wheel of an Aston Martin.
“I’m incredibly proud of everyone in the team at Gaydon who have brought this special project from concept to reality.
The two cars have also been shown in the film's official trailer, below.
Kicking off the revitalised Aston Martin is expected to be the aforementioned DB9 replacement, which will bring with it a new lightweight aluminium architecture and a new range of engines supplied by Mercedes-AMG. The DB10 previews the look of this car - a complete departure from the current familiar design language.
