Aston Martin used in ‘Spectre’ for sale for £1 to £1.5 million despite being undriveable
Ten Aston Martin DB10’s were manufactured for James Bond’s twenty-fourth outing in Spectre in 2015 and now the first to be made available to a private owner is being sold in a charity auction by Christie’s complete with a plaque signed by Daniel Craig on 18th February.
Offered with a staggering estimate of £1,000,000 to £1,500,000 ($1.4 million or €1.3 million), the 6-speed manual, Spectre Silver coloured 4.7-litre V8 petrol car has an all carbon fibre exterior and a handcrafted leather interior. It is said to be capable of 190mph but is sold as a collector’s item only. Christie’s note:
“It is an original Aston Martin DB10, and was built to be capable of certain limited specific uses by trained drivers in a controlled environment for filming. The vehicle is not homologated, certified or approved for use on any public roads and has not undergone the testing processes used for production vehicles, including but not limited to occupant safety, crash testing, durability and/or emissions of aftersales maintenance regimes”.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the buyer of this lot will only acquire the physical property of this DB10 vehicle. The lot is sold without any warranty of any kind, subject to Paragraph E of our Conditions of Sale. Intellectual property rights arising in connection with the vehicle belong to Aston Martin Lagonda Limited, including, without limitation, its designs, trademarks and copyright”.
“Christie’s makes no promise that the vehicle is of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose or roadworthy”.
The car was used for display purposes only and surprisingly represents great value for money given its pedigree. It can only go up in value and will most likely end up in the collection of an Aston Martin or Bond franchise fanatic.
Update: 19th February: The car sold for the staggering sum of £2,785,500 ($3,977,694, €3,568,226).
