Bond….James Bond’s Aston Martin DB10 to be sold at Auction

The Aston Martin DB10 will be auctioned at a charity event and the car is one of 10 DB10 cars made for last year's James Bond film “Spectre”. It will be in good company as 23 other Bond-related items will also be auctioned off.

Christie’s will be hosting an auction in London on Feb. 18 featuring various memorabilia from the latest James Bond film, "Spectre."

The Aston Martin DB10 was specially built for the film, and will be put up on 18 February with a starting price of £1m. “Spectre” - The Auction, is timed to coincide with the release of the 24th Bond film on DVD, which is released just a few days before.

The DB10 harbours a 4.7-litre V8 petrol engine and has a top speed of 190 mph, though it cannot be driven on the road. Aston Martin has a bit of heritage with James Bond since the release of the 1964 film Goldfinger, which featured an Aston Martin DB5. Most of the DB10s were modified for use in the filming of Spectre, but the DB10 offered at Christie's auction house is one of only two "show" cars, which were left unmodified and used for display purposes.

The film is reported to have destroyed $36m worth of cars during shooting.

The car up for auction has been signed by James Bond actor Daniel Craig.
