It turns out it’s not just Daniel Craig who gets to put his hands on one of the rarest Aston Martins the British luxury sportscar maker has ever created. One lucky and quite rich fellow will too have this chance, sometime next year, when one out of ten will go under the hammer.
The exclusivity factor went over the top with this British contraption, as it was clearly stated that Aston Martin would only make ten units of their DB10 model, after which no other car under that name would ever leave the factory. Sure, the next production model - the DB11 - is said to have some of the Spectre hero car’s features, but it’s not the same deal.

Like everything amazing on this planet, this news also has a major setback. According to the Mirror, although three cars survived “uninjured” after the shooting of the James Bond film finished, one will be kept by Eon Productions, another by Aston Martin themselves, and only the third will be auctioned.

Sure, the proceeds will go to charity, but the problem is the car is not road-legal. In other words, the happy person who will get to buy it will never be able to burn rubber properly on the road. On the other hand, we have heard of collectors who just buy exclusive cars because they enjoy gazing at their beauty, and not necessarily for driving them.

The one-of-a-kind sportscar is expected to fetch somewhere in the proximity of £1 million ($1,529,400 at the current exchange rate). But the car may be worth the hustle, considering that, aside from the fame factor, there’s a lot of beautiful engineering and design invested in this beauty. According to Aston Martin designer Marek Reichman, the DB10 is the first Aston with a falling waistline, meaning that the back goes lower than the front arch.

Moreover, even though it was initially estimated that the body was based on the V12 Vantage, it turns out a 4.7-liter engine with a bit over 400 horsepower is actually found under the hood. Again, it’s such a shame the owner will never be able to drive it.
