Aston Martin DB10 - James Bond - Spectre

When the next James Bond film, Spectre, is released on November 6, 2015, the super-spy will be behind the wheel of a brand new Aston Martin designed especially for him.

Aston Martin unveiled Bond's new DB10 today on the 007 stage at Pinewood Studios, in conjunction with EON Productions, the producers of the James Bond movie franchise.

The car was developed specifically for the film and built in-house by the brand's design and engineering teams, led by Aston Martin's 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.

Bond's history with Aston Martin began 50 years ago with his iconic DB5 in Goldfinger. "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,' said Dr Andy Palmer, Aston Martin's CEO.

The DB10 is said to provide a glimpse to the future design direction for the next generation of Aston Martins. A strictly limited run of 10 of the bespoke sports cars will be built by the skilled craftspeople at Aston Martin's Gaydon headquarters.
