There is no denying it, the Aston Martin DB10 is stunning. The car was revealed alongside the launch of the latest James Bond Movie starring Daniel Craig. We must admit we didn’t see this one coming.
And let’s be honest here, the DB10 stole the show who cares about Bond 24, 25 or 26 infinity and beyond. We like the latest installment of the Bond franchise and the DB10 will play a lead role, so to speak, in the 24th movie.
We love what Mark Reichman has designed, its a creation born out of a collaboration between Aston Martin and the films director Sam Mendez.
Consider the DB10 to be automotive haute couture but it will only be made in a limited production run of 10 and all units are destined for the Bond movie which is called Specter.
Aston have yet to reveal the exact specification’s and it really doesn’t matter because our collective jaws are open, drooling at utter design perfection.
And that’s the number one reason why this DB10 is disappointing, it deserves to be given a production run of many, many more. But it won’t happen because Aston are a little strapped for cash at the moment and seem to be specialising in limited production runs of late to pay the bills.
Modern day presses and tools may well not be able recreate the delicate yet powerful body work details. Indeed the DB10’s body work is hand crafted from carbon fiber because its quicker to make.
Apparently the DB10 borrows the same powerplant, chassis and therefore decade old technology from the V8 Vantage.
Aston insiders have told Top Gear that the DB10 could be the best hint yet of what the replacement for V8 Vantage will look like but that could be Top Gear making it up, News of The World style.
However Aston have come out of the wood work and said that the DB10 “gives a glimpse to the future design direction for the next generation of Aston Martins”.
