Excitement is building as we prepare for 007 to hit the big screens once again in the latest instalment of the James Bond movie franchise.
Spectre, which will hit cinemas on October 26, will see the world’s favourite agent step behind the wheel of a specially-built Aston Martin DB10.
The one-off DB10 is based on the Aston V8 Vantage and is powered by the same 4.7-litre engine. There are 10 examples in existence, including a ‘Hero’ car, used for Daniel Craig’s close up shots, a pair of stunt cars and a duo of gadget cars.
Although it will never reach production, its bespoke interior and tweaked styling is said to preview the British brand’s future design language, hinting at what the DB9’s replacement – the DB11 – could look like when it arrives.
Aston Martin says it won’t sell any of the DB10 Bond cars, but it’s highly likely that the ‘Hero’ car could end up under the hammer at some point in the near future.
If you can’t wait to head to the cinema, you can quench your James Bond thirst by watching how Aston pieced together 007’s latest set of wheels in the video above.
