More than $36 million was spent writing off cars in high-octane stunts during the making of the film, including seven specially designed Aston Martin DB10s – the spy’s car of choice in the movie.

The boutique brand has created a level of exclusivity by manufacturing only 150 examples of this special collectors edition, which also includes unique numbered sill plaques featuring the 007 logo; gun barrel embroidery on the 2+2’s rear seat divider and a special Bond Edition start-up screen on the new model’s AMi II touch-sensitive Aston Martin infotainment system.

Aston Martin CEO Dr. Andy Palmer said, “I’m sure the 150 owners worldwide who succeed in acquiring one of these exceptional sports cars will, like the rest of us, delight in seeing Spectre when it is released later this year.”
