James Bond’s ‘Spectre’ Aston Martin sells for $3.5 million

Aston Martin DB10

The James Bond ‘Spectre’ Aston Martin DB10 was expected to fetch between $1.4 and $2.1 million at a recently Christie’s auction. Instead, the vehicle brought in $3.5 million from an unidentified buyer.

The new owner won’t be able to drive the new car on public roads. That’s because the Aston Martin DB10 doesn’t have any necessary road certifications because it was created solely for the latest 007 film “Spectre.”

In the fine print for the auction Christie’s explained that it “makes no promise that the vehicle is of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose or roadworthy.”

While the vehicle does not have any road certifications, Aston Martin says it should be able to hit a top speed of about 190 miles per hour.

Aston Martin created 10 customized cars for the “Spectre” film, but this is the only one that was available for sale. The other nine cars will not be sold to the public.

The $3.5 million collected from the auction will be donated to Doctors Without Borders.

The supercar was auctioned off alongside a range of other “Spectre” items, including the secret agent’s Tom Ford suit and Omega wristwatch.

The  DB11, which is expected to be unveiled later this year, is expected to cost around $200,000.
