The live auction on 18 February is led by an Aston Martin DB10, one of the series of DB10s designed and engineered by Aston Martin exclusively for James Bond, Spectre, illustrated above. Most of the DB10s were modified for use in the filming of Spectre, but two of those produced were kept back as show cars, for display purposes only, and this is one of them. The car is expected to realise between £1,000,000 and £1,500,000 and is to date the only DB10 to be released for public sale by Aston Martin and EON Productions. This is the only car that includes a special plaque signed by Daniel Craig and was displayed at the world premiere of Spectre at the Royal Albert Hall, London. Aston Martin has been associated with the James Bond franchise for over 50 years, with the DB10 model featuring in the latest Bond film, Spectre.
London – Christie’s, EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment present a rare opportunity to acquire memorabilia from the 24th film in the James Bond series this February to celebrate the release of Spectre on Digital HD, Blu-rayTM and DVD.

Wilson, Barbara Broccoli, Jesper Christensen and Sam Smith. The online-only sale will offer 14 lots and open for bidding from Tuesday 16 to Tuesday 23 February at christies.com/spectreonline.
