Aston Martin’s DB10, the car being used in the new James Bond film, began its tour around the company’s UK dealerships with a display in Newport Pagnall.

The model built exclusively for Spectre was shown alongside the previous and iconic Bond car, the DB5, at the Aston Martin Works in Buckinghamshire.

Mark Higgins, the stunt driver for the previous three Bond films, gave an insight to the 500 onlookers about driving the limited edition DB10 and also the making of the new film, which premieres on Monday October 26.

Guests were also able to put their own driving skills to the test at the wheel of an Aston Martin sports car on a Sony PS4 simulator, with prizes for the fastest times in the morning and afternoon sessions.

Paul Spires, Managing Director at Aston Martin Works said: ”The whole day was a superb occasion and I was thrilled to see so many of our customers come along to see the incredible DB10.

“It was also a real delight to see so many youngsters – potential Aston Martin customers of the future – join us on the day.”

Now home to a dealership and world-renowned restoration and heritage service, the Newport Pagnall factory saw over 13,000 cars built, before production was moved to their current base in Gaydon, Warwickshire in 2007.

The DB10, which was first displayed at Spectre’s film launch in December last year, limited to strict run of just ten vehicles.
