The Aston Martin DB10 is for Bond's behind only

Automobiles
[SOUND] [MUSIC] This is the Aston Martin DB10. It's James Bond's car in his new film, Spectre. Also, it's not for you. This exists purely in Mr Bond's world, custom-made, much like his suit For the greatest spy on earth. [MUSIC] [NOISE] [MUSIC] Aston has made ten real life, DB10's for the movie. One of which is gonna be auctioned off for charity. So it's really unlikely you're ever gonna see one in the real world which is a crying shame because look at it. [MUSIC]. GB10 was designed by Aston's very own Marek Reitman as a car not only to suit Bond but also to captivate viewers in the same way Bond's iconic Aston Martin DB5 did way back when it debuted in Goldfinger in 1964 and I think it's fair to say he's done a pretty fine job The fact DB 10 isn't going to make production shouldn't be disheartening because it's something of a moving concept car Aston says that this is a pretty strong hint of what future production cars are going to look like [MUSIC] Under it's slinky skin is a modified Aston Vantage, it's wider and has a longer wheelbase than usual and it also got a 4.7 liter V8 that will push it to 190 miles an hour and get it from naught to 60 in 4.7 seconds. So I think it's quick enough for Bond. [MUSIC] Bond's relationship with Aston Martin goes back over 50 years to when the DB5 first appeared in 1964's Goldfinger, and since then he's had the keys to a number of the winged beasts. From that DB5 to the DBS in On Her Majesty's Secret Service. A V8 Volante that was winterized with a roof by Q in The Living Daylights. A Vanquish in Die Another Day. And a DBS in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. And now this, the DB10 in Spectre. [MUSIC] Over the years Bond's Aston's have featured in 12 of the 24 Bond films with a few interesting gadgets up their sleeves from machine guns, shotguns, guns, really, to a cloaking device and even a defibrillator. This one has a flame thrower amongst other gizmos. Those aren't the only things that make a Bond car special. Those aren't the only things that give it the X factor for want of a better phrase. That's the noise, the power, the amazing driving and of course the driver himself. Having spent a little bit of time with EB10 I think this one is more than a match for the cars that preceded it. This is a custom built car for the coolest spy on Earth. [MUSIC]
