Here’s a rare opportunity for billionaire car enthusiasts with $2 million to burn. British luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin will be auctioning off a limited edition Aston Martin DB10 from the latest James Bond film ‘Spectre’.
According to Autoblog, the car is expected to fetch anywhere between $1-$1.5 million when it goes up for sale at a Christie’s auction in London next month. It’s all for a good cause though. According to the Christie’s website, all proceeds will benefit Médecins sans Frontières (MSF), the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS), and other charitable organizations.
Though most of the Aston Martin DB10s were modified for the film, two of them were kept back as show cars, for display purposes only. The one going to be auctioned on February 18 is one of those two, and is to date the only DB10 to be made available for private ownership.
One little thing. An ‘Important Notice’ at the end of the press release states:
The car is sold as a collector’s item. It is an original Aston Martin DB10, and was built to be capable of specific uses by trained drivers in a controlled environment for filming. The car is not homologated, certified or approved for use on any public roads and has not undergone the testing processes used for production cars, including but not limited to occupant safety, crash testing, durability and/or emissions of aftersales maintenance regimes.
So you can buy it, just don’t expect to drive it (much).
