First, the makers of the 24th official James Bond film commission Aston Martin to make the most exclusive DB ever and then they blow it up in the same movie. Ten Aston Martin DB10 models were built exclusively for the new Bond movie, Spectre. The built-for-Bond DB10 vehicles, valued at $36.5 million, have been destroyed in a heart-pounding car chase featured in the movie. With this, the most spectacular and expensive Bond movie ever has also set the record for smashing up cars on Spectre. The most exclusive DB ever produced, equipped with the famous ejector seat, was written off in chase which involved the secret agent’s Aston Martin being pursued at high speed by a villain in a Jaguar C-X75 through the streets of Rome.The chase took place in the Vatican, the Colosseum and along the River Tiber, with producers having to weigh up the risk of a car skidding into the Vatican, which would have been ‘catastrophic’. Chief stunt co-ordinator Gary Powell added, ‘In Rome, we wrecked millions of pounds worth. They were going into the Vatican at top speeds of 110 mph. We shot one entire night for four seconds of film.’
Playing Bond for the fourth time, Daniel Craig, however walks away without a scratch. While Spectre is scheduled to hit the screens in the UK on October 26, US 007 fans will have to wait until November 6 to watch the heart-wrenching wrecking spree of the seven Aston Martin DB10.
