The Aston Martin DB10 from Spectre has sold at auction for £2,434,500, with the proceeds going to Médecins Sans Frontières.
The DB10, one of ten created specifically for the film, is based on a V8 Vantage but features bespoke styling that is meant to preview the next generation of Aston Martin cars.
Eight of the ten were modified for filming, while two were kept for display purposes. The auctioned car is one of the two.

Aston Martin CEO, Andy Palmer, said, ‘The DB10 is one of the rarest cars ever created. Only 10 will ever be made and this is the only one that will be made available for sale. It’s great to see this DB10 raising vital funds for Médecins Sans Frontières, it is a fantastic charity that we are delighted to support.’
