Aston Martin DB10 heads to auction

Attached Image Dreamt of owning an Aston Martin DB10? Now's your chance. Auction house Christie's is going to be auctioning one off, with all the proceeds – an estimated £1m-£1.5m(S$3.06Million) – going to Médecins Sans Frontières.

Aston produced a total of 10 DB10s, many of which were modified for use in the filming of Spectre. The company reputedly held on to two standard and undamaged examples, however, to use as show cars – and this is one of those cars.

This particular DB10, which was on display at the world premiere of Spectre at the Royal Albert Hall, will come with a plaque signed by Daniel Craig – lending it further appeal to die-hard Bond collectors and Aston Martin fans alike.

It also comes with an extensive range of documentation from Aston, making it easier to sell later on should your stocks plummet, including a full 3D scan to verify its dimensions and authenticity.

Performance should be more than adequate, thanks to its naturally aspirated 4.7-litre V8, and drive is sent to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual gearbox – joy. A top speed of 305km/h is claimed and, if you get a good launch, it should sprint from 0-100km/h in under 5sec.
But, Aston is selling the car as a 'collector's item' and issues the following in the auction listing: 'The car is not homologated, certified or approved for use on any public roads and has not undergone the testing processes used for production cars, including but not limited to occupant safety, crash testing, durability and/or emissions of aftersales maintenance regimes.'

Your mileage may vary, though, and it would likely be an expensive move – although one that would pale in comparison to the cost of actually buying the DB10 in the first place. There's no warranty, either, so be prepared to spend a fairly hefty chunk keeping it operational.

The auction for the Aston Martin DB10, as well as several other pieces of Bond memorabilia, will take place on 18 February 2016.
