With the highly anticipated 24th installment of the adventures, trials and tribulations of the world’s most prolific spy, James Bond, Aston Martin has taken the opportunity to put the very limited-edition DB10 on display at the brand’s spiritual home in Milton Keynes, UK.
Only ten units of the DB10 will ever be made, and just one was put on display for fans and enthusiasts to see in the metal. The relaxed, family-friendly event saw more than 500 people visit Aston Martin Works to get a close-up view of the brand’s ultra-exclusive new creation.
Stunt driver Mark Higgins – the man behind the wheel for the extreme driving scenes in the three previous Bond films – was also at the weekend event to share his insights into both the making of Spectre and the experience of driving the exclusive DB10. Aside from the rare chance to see the stunning Aston Martin DB10 ‘in the metal’, visitors of the historic Newport Pagnell site were treated to a display of one of the Aston Martin DB5s used in the previous blockbuster Bond film, Skyfall.
Guests also had the chance to put their own driving skills to the test behind the wheel of an Aston Martin in virtual reality by means of a Sony PS4 console simulator challenge, with prizes awarded for the fastest laps. Aston Martin Works Managing Director, Paul Spires said, “The whole day was a superb occasion. I was thrilled to see so many of our customers come along to see for themselves the incredible DB10. It was also a real delight to see so many youngsters – potential Aston Martin customers of the future – join us on the day.”
A quick check on local movies (TGV Cinemas) listings show that the movie will premier locally on the 6th of November.
