Aston Martin junkies already know that the company produced a run of ten DB10 models for Spectre, the latest James Bond film. While most of the cars were used and abused in the production of the 007 film, two examples of the DB10 remain and one of them is going to auction February 18, 2016 at Christie’s in London. This particular DB10 on offer is the one from the Spectre premiere display at the Royal Albert Hall and includes Daniel Craig’s autograph.

Regardless, this DB10 is a stunning bit of work. The exterior is entirely formed in carbon fiber and the interior takes Aston Martin cabin design to an entirely new level. It’s powered by the Vantage’s 4.7-litre V8 and properly fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox. One of only two remaining DB10s, this is the only one available for purchase by a private owner.

Christie’s estimates the Aston Martin DB10 to reach as high as £1,500,000. Other items up for auction included Bond’s Omega Seamaster 300, as worn by Daniel Craig in Spectre.

While this DB10 runs and drives, Aston Martin and Christie’s carefully point out that it is sold as a collector’s item since it’s never been homologated to any form of safety standards. Still, that wouldn’t stop me from figuring out a way to plate it and be the coolest cat at Cars & Coffee for the next century.

For fans of Aston Martin, or even James Bond, this is a special opportunity to obtain what is perhaps the most famous car in the world today, which would otherwise never be made available to any one for any price.
