Fast cars and James Bond go hand in hand and that’s why agent 007 will be driving a brand-spanking new Aston Martin for Spectre, the 24th Bond film. The Aston Martin DB10 was created specifically for new Bond film and it not only continues the marquee’s partnership with EON productions for over 50 years but also the ability of the brand’s bespoke capabilities.
The DB10 was unveiled in grand fashion during the recent Bond film announcement at Pinewood Studios in London. And it should be good news for fans to see their favourite secret agent drive an Aston on screen once again. But on this occasion though, it will be a model developed specifically for the film and built in-house by the brand’s design and engineering teams.
Led by Aston Martin 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. 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.
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,” added Palmer. “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, developed and built by the designers, engineers and highly skilled craftspeople at Aston Martin’s Gaydon headquarters.
Spectre is due for general release in November 2015.
