Aston Martin DB10 to star in new James Bond film, Spectre
The Aston Martin DB10 will take centre stage as James Bond’s wheels in the 24th Bond film, Spectre, which will open on 24th November 2015.
DETAILS ABOUT THE Aston Martin DB10 are limited, but what we do know is that the car’s been designed specifically for the film and will not make it to the road, although the DB10 does hint at future design direction of Aston Martin product.
“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,” Aston Martin said in a statement.
The ‘Bond’ project to design and engineer the DB10 was led by Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman with the AM design team working closely with the film’s director, Sam Mendes, “to create the ultimate car for the world’s most famous spy”.
Dr Andy Palmer, CEO of Aston Martin, said: “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.”
Production will be strictly limited to 10 of the bespoke sports cars.
But it wasn’t all good news for the James Bond movie set. News out of Germany overnight is suggesting that nine cars were stolen from Land Rover’s Training Centre in Germany. According to a report on German news site Wirtschafts Woche the cars, five of which were Range Rover Sports, were stolen from a transporter which was preparing to shift them to a film set in the German Alps.
