The DB10 from the most recent James Bond film, 'Spectre' sold yesterday evening at Christies auction in London for £2,434,500 including fees.
The DB10, one of only two "show cars" from the 10 made specially for the film, smashed its reserve price of £1m.
Made in Warwickshire at the home of Aston Martin, Gaydon and signed by Daniel Craig. The model is based on a V8 Vantage S and inherits the 4.7-litre V8 petrol engine and top speed of 190 mph - but it cannot be driven on public roads!
"Spectre - The Auction", at Christie's London King Street, saw 10 lots raise £2,785,500 for charities.
A further 14 items continue in an online auction which ends next Tuesday.
Other lots included the "Day of the Dead" costume worn by Daniel Craig in Spectre, which sold for £98,500. Sam Smith's Writing on the Wall record and sheet music went for £9,375.
Most of the DB10s were modified for use in the filming of Spectre but two were left unmodified for display of which this is one.
We were fortunate enough to host an evening with the both the DB5 and DB10 in December 2015 for the launch of the film and we wish the owner of the DB10 all the very best - even if we are extremely jealous!
