The Aston Martin DB10 built for the latest James Bond film Spectre has sold at auction for a final bid of £2,434,500 – with funds from the sale going to charity Médecins Sans Frontières.
The sale took place at Christie’s in London last night (Thursday 18 February). The DB10 was the star of a 10-lot auction called James Bond Spectre – The Live Auction.
The amount raised on the night totalled nearly £2.8 million.
One of 10 DB10 built for Spectre, the DB10 under the hammer was one of two show cars kept back for display purposes: the other eight were used (and modified) for filming.
This is the only DB10 that will ever be sold.
Aston Martin CEO Dr. Andy Palmer. “The DB10 is one of the rarest cars ever created.
“It’s great to see this DB10 raising vital funds for Médecins Sans Frontières, it is a fantastic charity that we are delighted to support”.
The auction now continues online until 23 February, with a further 14 lots on sale – again raising cash for MSF, the global humanitarian aid organisation that helps victims of disasters, epidemics and armed conflicts.
