New James Bond cars limited to 10 units only
Aston Martin, along with EON Productions, recently revealed the DB10, James Bond’s newest car that will be featured in the 2015 movie titled ‘Spectre’. The car was developed specifically for the film and will be made in-house by the company’s engineering and design teams. It is also worth mentioning that the car and the movie celebrate the 50 year relationship between the automaker and the movie franchise.
Led by Aston Martin Chief Executive Designer Marek Reichman, the design team worked closely together with the film’s director, Sam Mendes, to make and oversee the company’s latest car for 007.
While still carrying the brand’s signature silhouette, the DB10 provided a glimpse of Aston Martin’s new design direction. The front end now features thinner headlights along with a lower, straighter grill design. The side features a character line that starts off near the front wheel wells and ends just at the end of the doors. The back end is now shorter, with the rear wheel well placed far off onto the corners of the car but still being able to employ a muscular rear wheel arch.
“In the same year that we celebrate our 50-year relationship with 007, it seems doubly fitting that today we unveiled this wonderful new sports car created especially for James Bond. To be partnering once again with EON Productions is great news for this company and for everyone around the world that loves to see Bond at the wheel of an Aston Martin. I’m incredibly proud of everyone in the team at Gaydon who have brought this special project from concept to reality,” said Andy Palmer, CEO of Aston Martin.
The DB10 will be limited to only 10 units and all will be crafted at Aston Martin’s Gaydon headquarters.
The new James Bond film ‘Spectre’ is slated for general release on November 6, 2015.
