James Bond and the DB10
When it comes to James Bond, we all know how important a role theprestige cars play in the films. So when the new James Bond film ‘Spectre’ was announced, most of us were more excited about the new cars rather than the actors!
True to the franchise’s form, there are set to be some amazing cars making an appearance, and there’s even a wild rumour that James Bond himself will be taking part in an epic car chase behind the wheel of a Fiat 500! Jaguar Land Rover will also be supplying cars to the film, including a Jaguar C-X75 for the main antagonist. And what better car for a Bond villain than a Jag?
As for Bond, he’ll be driving in the usual Aston Martin, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. The new model has so far been dubbed as the Aston Martin DB10. The new model comes with a V12 engine, and was revealed back in 2014 at a special event at Pinewood Studios.
Most people have already seen some of the Spectre cars in action during dynamic film trailers and stylised promotional videos from Aston Martin. From what we’ve seen so far, the DB10 looks to be incredibly stunning, and the performance powerful and tenacious. We can’t wait to watch the film and see the DB10 in full swing.
It’s also been rumoured that the new DB10 will set the standard style for all future designs of any later models from Aston Martin. The current DB10 does share some similar features to the previous V8 Vantage, but is much more angular and aggressive. The perfect car for Bond. Even Aston Martin’s Boss, Andy Palmer stated “Bond is always extraordinarily good looking, well educated, well mannered, well dressed, a little bit naughty, just like Aston Martin”.
The project that brought the DB10 to life was led by Aston Martin’s chief creative officer, Marek Reichman, and Spectre director, Sam Mendes (who had some say in the DB10’s design).

Unfortunately, it seems that only 10 units of the stunning DB10 have been put into production, and 8 of them will be used in the latest Bond film. This means it will be incredibly difficult to get your hands on a DB10, and they’re likely to become an expensive collector’s item for anyone who has the money to buy one. There doesn’t seem to be much hope of Aston Martin making any more DB10 models in the future either, and we may not see a brand new Aston Martin until next year.
However, if you still want to get your hands on a sleek supercar, without having to hunt down rare collectible cars, then prestige car leasingis a fantastic option.
