Ever wondered what price you would have to pay to become James Bond? Well, around £1 million (approx. $1,425,361). At least, that's how much an Aston Martin DB10, the car that made its appearance in the latest 007 movie, “Spectre,” is expected to cost. And it is now up for auction at Christie’s in London.
Dubbed “Spectre - The Auction,” the public sale event celebrates the release of the 24th Bond film on Digital HD, Blu-Ray and DVD with 24 unique auction lots going under the hammer, including the Aston Martin DB10, the Omega Seamaster 300 watch that was worn by Daniel Craig as James Bond, the laptop used by actor Ben Whishshaw as Q, a pair of Tom Ford “Snowdon” sunglasses worn by Craig, James Bond’s blue “JB” Tom Ford cufflinks worn by Craig in the opening scene of Spectre, and a movie Blu-ray signed by 007.

All the proceeds will be donated to Medecins Sans Frontieres.

Developed and hand-built by the designers, engineers and artisan craftspeople at Aston Martin’s Gaydon headquarters in the UK, the DB10’s production was limited to ten examples.

This particular car is the only one to be made available for private ownership.

It features a 4.7-liter V8 gasoline engine linked to a six-speed manual gearbox and has an estimated top speed of around 190 mph (306 km/h). The car has a full carbon fiber exterior, and a hand-crafted interior using fine luxury leathers, carbon fiber and aluminum.

Before you go and practice the “My name is Bond. James Bond” line in front of a mirror, you should know that this DB10 doesn’t have rockets, ejectable seat, guns, and other MI6 gizmos, as it’s one of only two show cars that were left unmodified and used for display purposes. But the DB10 offered at Christie’s has been present at the world premiere of Spectre at the Royal Albert Hall in London and has been signed by Daniel Craig.

The auction will take place on February 18, and the DB10 is expected to fetch between £1 million (around $1,425,361) and £1.5 million (around $2,137,842).
