Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors - Char­ity cash

The As­ton Martin DB10 fea­tured in the lat­est James Bond movie Spectre has been sold for an as­ton­ish­ing £ 2,434,500 at a char­ity auc­tion.

The car, the only one avail­able for pub­lic sale, was hand- built specif­i­cally for the film.

All the money from the sale at Christie’s in Lon­don will go to the in­ter­na­tional aid or­gan­i­sa­tion Medecins sans Fron­tieres.

As­ton Martin made a to­tal of 10 DB10s for Spectre and eight were used in the 24th Bond movie with two be­ing kept as show mod­els.

Dr Andy Palmer, As­ton Martin chief ex­ec­u­tive, said: “The DB10 is one of the rarest cars ever cre­ated. Only 10 will ever be made and this is the only one that will be made avail­able for sale.

“It’s great to see this DB10 rais­ing vi­tal funds for Medecins Sans Fron­tieres, it is a fan­tas­tic char­ity that we are de­lighted to sup­port.”

The buyer of the DB10 has not been named.
