Aston Martin has unveiled the DB10 show car at a special preview event at Pinewood Studios in London to mark the start of filming of the latest James Bond film, Spectre. Contrary to what the DB10 name may suggest, the car is not the successor for the DB9. It’s a car designed exclusively for the new James Bond movie.

Built in-house by Aston Martin’s design and engineering teams led by Aston Martin’s Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman “worked closely” with Spectre’s director, Sam Mendes, “to create the ultimate car for the world’s most famous spy”.

Aston Martin will build 10 of the bespoke DB10 cars at its Gaydon headquarters Just one image of the car has been released.

It’s recognisable as an Aston Martin via its trademark grille and long bonnet. Even though this car will only ever be driven by James Bond it hints towards where Aston Martin is heading with its design language. Aston Martin says the 10 cars won’t find their way into private hands and that it fully expects them all to be destroyed by the Bond stunt-driving team which has in the past included Ben Collins, aka the former “Stig” on the hit BBC show Top Gear.

Spectre will arrive in theatres on November 6, 2015.
