The As­ton Martin DB10 is set to be the star of the 24th film James Bond movie Spec­tre along­side some hu­man … name of Danie or Danny or some such. As­ton CEO Andy Palmer said at the un­veil­ing only 10 of the DB10 mod­els will be built for the movie fran­chise. “As­ton Martin doesn’t quite have a new prod­uct ready to de­but, this is an ex­tremely limited pro­duc­tion ve­hi­cle done as a ‘be­spoke’ prod­uct. 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 Palmer. Spec­tre is be­ing filmed in Lon­don, Mex­ico City, Tang­ier and Er­foud in Morocco, and Sölden, Ober­tilli­ach and Lake Al­taussee in Aus­tria, as well as Rome, where the plot calls for one of the DB10s to sink in the river Tiber. Luck­ily this will only be a shell.
