Well here’s some eye candy for you, if you don’t mind a movie spoiler. An Aston Martin DB10 was spotted on the James Bond Spectre movie set at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire earlier this month. Aston Martin built the car specifically for the movie and production will be strictly limited to 10, all of them manufactured to a bespoke specification.
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, Aston Martin says the DB10 gives a glimpse to the future design direction for the next generation of Aston Martins.

Meanwhile, you don’t think an Aston Martin is the only vehicle 007 will be driving as he goes after the bad guys do you? Rest assured there will be plenty of car candy to go around, including a Jaguar C-X75 concept.
The Spectre production crew put a little behind-the-scenes video together of its own, showing off two other not-too-shabby sets of four wheels: a heavily modified Range Rover Sport SVR and Land Rover Defender Big Foot, provided by Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations.
Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations, John Edwards, says: “This is an exciting partnership for Jaguar Land Rover and an opportunity to demonstrate the fantastic capabilities of the Special Operations team.”
So 007 will have no lack of picks when it comes luxury vehicles with all the trimmings. While we don’t know if they all make it out intact, we do know that Daniel Craig is one lucky guy. Spectre is due out in November.
