Aston Martin on Monday, premiered a documentary about the Aston Martin DB10 which was built exclusively for the latest Bond movie, Spectre.
The premiere for ‘DB10: Built for Bond' took place at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, England and saw the guests watching the documentary on giant screen in the comfort of 50 current and classic Aston Martins.
The documentary was shot over a period of 18 months in 4K resolution and featured interviews with the team that designed the DB10. The producer, director, and James Bond himself, Daniel Craig, talked about the collaboration with Aston Martin, while the Spectre special effects team including stunt driver Mark Higgins, shared their experiences about filming with the DB10.
The sharp lines of the DB10 preview the direction that Aston Martin is heading with regards to future cars. Underneath the shark like looks of the DB10 is an Aston Martin V8 Vanquish with a manual gearbox. However, the DB10 is almost as wide as Aston's One-77 supercar and has a longer wheelbase than the Vantage as well.
The DB10 was built in just six months by Aston Martin for Spectre and the exclusive sports car celebrates 50 years of collaboration between Aston Martin and the world's most well known spy, which started with the DB5 in Goldfinger. Only ten cars were made and thankfully, all of them survived filming. One of these cars will be sold at auction for charity.
