    James Bond, Your Aston Martin is Ready

      Aston Martin's DB10 Plays Alongside James Bond


    Over the course of his long and fictitious career in espionage, secret agent James Bond has driven a wide variety of vehicles. But he is synonymous with Aston Martin. In many of the films, Bond can be seen driving in a DB5, V8 Vantage, DB7, and most recently, the DBS. But the next James Bond film will feature a new Aston Martin.

    Called the DB10, the vehicle will star along side Daniel Craig in the upcoming Spectre. Aston Martin didn't release any technical details about the vehicle, but did go into some detail about the design which breaks away somewhat from the current design language that has been a part of the company for awhile. Working with EON Productions – the studio responsible for the Bond films – Aston Martin's design team led by Marek Reichman created a new shape that is similar in size to the current V8 Vantage.

    "In the same year that we celebrate our 50-year relationship with 007, it seems doubly fitting that today we unveiled this wonderful new sports car created especially for James Bond. To be partnering once again with EON Productions is great news for this company and for everyone around the world that loves to see Bond at the wheel of an Aston Martin. I'm incredibly proud of everyone in the team at Gaydon who have brought this special project from concept to reality," said Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer.

    Aston Martin will be building ten of these special models. You'll be able to see the DB10 in action when Spectre releases next November.

    Built for Bond: Aston Martin debuts unique car for Spectre

    - Aston Martin DB10 created specifically for new Bond film

    - Partnership with EON Productions spans 50 years of cinema history- Demonstrates the breadth of Aston Martin's bespoke capabilities

    4 December 2014, Gaydon: Aston Martin together with EON Productions, the producers of the James Bond film franchise, unveiled Bond's stunning new car, the Aston Martin DB10, on the 007 stage at Pinewood Studios.

    The luxury British sports car brand is delighted to confirm that James Bond will once again drive an Aston Martin in Spectre. On this occasion, it will be a model developed specifically for the film and built in-house by the brand's design and engineering teams.

    Led by Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman, the design team worked closely with the film's director, Sam Mendes, to create the ultimate car for the world's most famous spy.

    Celebrating the great British brand's half century with Bond, which started with the iconic DB5, the DB10 gives a glimpse to the future design direction for the next generation of Aston Martins.

    Dr Andy Palmer, CEO of Aston Martin, said: "In the same year that we celebrate our 50-year relationship with 007, it seems doubly fitting that today we unveiled this wonderful new sports car created especially for James Bond.

    "To be partnering once again with EON Productions is great news for this company and for everyone around the world that loves to see Bond at the wheel of an Aston Martin.

    "I'm incredibly proud of everyone in the team at Gaydon who have brought this special project from concept to reality."

    Production will be strictly limited to 10 of the bespoke sports cars, developed and built by the designers, engineers and highly skilled craftspeople at Aston Martin's Gaydon headquarters.

    Spectre is due for general release on 6 November 2015.

    I wonder what his rumored foe will be driving.  It is rumored to be Andrew Scott who became internationally famous for his protrayal of Jim Moriarty in the Sherlock series. (of which I am a huge fan!)

    I wonder if Monica Bellucci will be a "no-cost" option if you buy the car.

    I'd upload a picture of her, but my choices might be NSFW.

    :roflmao: I would have to agree with you. I will take her with the car too and my mind is telling me it would not be safe for viewing either. :P

     

    Course I could see her dressed like this for the Bond Movie! Wonder if she will be good or bad?

    • Latest Update My wife and her sister wanted to go to Yakima Washington as the Cherry Harvest has officially begun. We like a small family farm that also runs a roadside business selling cherries, apricots and peaches from their farm with an assortment of locally made food items. Prices are pretty cheap compared to retail. The trip is a 321-mile round trip drive over I90, down Highway 82, up into the foothills and back. I plugged in the EV9 so we had a 100% battery pack to start with, we headed out. I was already sitting in the back seat when we arrived to pick up my sister in-law at 6am and realized the space was great looking at how much room I had from my knees to the back of the seat. As my wife loaded up her sister's stuff, it dawned on me that the middle row of seats is fully movable and I went ahead and moved them to their farthest back position gaining even more leg room. We stopped in a little town of Ellensburg for breakfast before heading over to Yakima. My wife always says I have the lead foot in the family for driving fast, but after looking at the Kia app and seeing what the current trip average speed was, I was not surprised to see her averaging a little over 85mph.  While at breakfast my wife did comment on how local driving did not use at much power as highway driving. As such, I told her no need to stress, we would stop at the local Walmart in Yakima where an Electrify America station was that had two 350 kW chargers and two 150 kW chargers. We plugged in and went into the Walmart to do some shopping. It took exactly 15 minutes to reach 80% from a starting point 16%. Kia's stated 220kW max charging speed is clearly underrated as I hit 250 kW charging speed with no problem and my Electrify America experience continues to be a very positive one. Noticing that the Fruit stand did not open for another 25 minutes, I continued to let the EV charge reaching 97% battery capacity before we left to head to the fruit stand. Charging cost was a whopping $29 rounding up. Having picked up the fruit that my wife and sister in-law wanted we headed home, dropping her off at her house and then on to our house arriving by 1:40pm after having left the house at 5:30am. Achieved a 321 mile round trip road trip, 12lb boxes of cherries in both frigs in the house. We have now put on 3,151 miles on the EV9 and still loving it.
    • It seems to me working great for me.
    • Yes, the site is much more responsive, loving it! Thank you
    • How is it running for everyone so far?  It seems a lot snappier to me. 
    • I don't travel anywhere near what you do, but the few I've been so have been horrible. I've never seen even a decent hotel gym.
