James Bond Aston Martin sells at auction for £2.4m


An Aston Martin DB10 car used in the most recent James Bond film Spectre has been sold at auction for £2,434,500.

That’s quite a lot of money for a car that can’t be driven on public roads.

The car was one of two “show cars” made specifically for the film. It has a 4.7-litre V8 petrol engine and a top speed of 190 mph.

At a special James Bond auction at Christies, the car had a reserve price of £1m, which it smashed, and the auction, which contained nine other James Bond related lots went on to raise a total of £2,785,500 for various charities.

James Bond actor Daniel Craig had signed the car.

Aston Martin made a total of 10 cars for the film, though most had been modified for specific filming requirements.

A total of £25m worth of cars were destroyed during the making of the film.

Other items in the auction included a Mexican Day of the Dead costume worn by Craig, some sheet music and a record by Sam Smith – the fellow who sings the song for the film, and a gold ring warn by Oberhauser, the baddie, played by Christoph Waltz, which went for £32,500.
