As rumors and official announcements have it, agent 007 will return with an all new Aston Martin Bond mobile. This was the right moment to present the all new custom Aston Martin DB10. Want to know more about this custom built brutal force?

Well, this car is specifically developed for the movie and only 10 of them are built. That’s right, only 10 units produced, but you can buy none of them yet. As Aston Martin has not come up with a new debutante, this limited production car is quite the “bespoke” product that not only boosts the name of the James Bond franchise; it also creates a unique identity about the brand Aston Martin in the minds of James Bond fans and car enthusiasts.

“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,” said Aston CEO Andy Palmer.

The new Aston is most likely going to be powered by a V12. Why? Well, one reason is because it is an ASTON, and it is built on one of the car’s older chassis.

With a long association with Aston Martin, and promoting them throughout the Bond movies like;

1964 Gold Finger:

This movie set the introduction of a new car for the forthcoming bond movies. The Aston martin DB5 started the relationship. With over 11 bond movies and around 50 successful years, this car was pretty famous.

Thunder ball:

The DB5 made a comeback in the 1965’s movie ‘THUNDERBALL’

The new car had a rear facing water cannon and boot stowed jetpack. Pretty cool right?

Golden Eye:

Those times when Bond was played by Pierce Brosnan, Style was the new factor and Brosnan was the new icon. The DB5 had returned and was shown chasing Onatopp’s Ferrari F355.

Die Another Day:

Pierce Brosnan had become pretty famous and he was the first James Bond character to drive two different Aston’s on to the screen in 2002. The film Die another day showed Brosnan driving the loud and omnipotent Aston Martin V12 Vanquish.

Casino Royale:

This was the time when Daniel Craig made his entry as the new James Bond character. The new movie “Casino Royale” also featured a new Aston Martin car, the DBS. In addition, the DB5 also made a special appearance. Casino Royale had featured 2 different Aston Martin Models.

Quantum of Solace:

The Aston Martin DBS made its appearance felt again in the movie Quantum of Solace. The return of the DBS was definitely exciting and watching it in a high-speed chase was terrific.

Skyfall:

This was the 23rd James Bond Film, DB5 returned again for its 6th appearance, this was one of the most eagerly anticipated Bond Films ever. Sadly, it was a letdown; there wasn’t anything as exciting as the previous Bond films. However, Aston Martin had successfully completed 50 glorious years and celebrated as one of the most iconic cars ever produced.

Spectre:

The latest movie is definitely raging up a lot of expectation over the Internet. It has definitely come as a whirlwind of excitement to know that the new Aston Martin DB10 is specially designed for this movie. Aston Martin claims that the DB10 gives a glimpse to the future design direction for the next generation of Aston Martins.

The new DB10’s panels are crafted from carbon fiber; let’s hope the car is as exciting as ever.

Fiat 500:

James Bond will also be careen through Rome in a Fiat 500. Although, there is no update about the specific Fiat 500 model, the Aston Martin is an official car in the forth coming Bond movie.

Daniel Craig’s Cars:

Of course, the James Bond star is going to whizz around in the latest Aston Martin car that might not be driven in the open road, Daniel Craig is a big car enthusiast himself.
