The name is Bond… James Bond. Arguably one of the most famous lines in cinematic history from undeniably the most recognised of any spy thriller. James Bond films have a cult following and the British super spy is associated with far more than that one line. His association with Aston Martin has spanned 50 years starting with the legendary DB5 in the 1964 blockbuster Goldfinger. Today Bond is portrayed in a modern and relevant environment and so his Aston must also reflect the change. Symbolically rising from the ashes of an utterly destroyed DB5 in Skyfall is the Aston Martin DB10.
To star alongside Daniel Craig in next years Bond flick, Spectre, the Aston Martin DB10 has been designed specifically for this film. Previewing a new design direction for Aston Martin, this GT is recognisably an Aston with its signature grill and proportions, but is a far more sculpted affair. Just 10 of these cars will be produced and all will likely be used for filming. What we are to take away from this is our closest glimpse at what the DB9’s replacement will look like. Rumoured to take the name DB11 Aston Martin, just like Bond, has still got it.
