2) Aston Martin DB10
The DB10 is James Bond’s newest set of wheels, speeding down highways in the 2015 film, Spectre. This vehicle in particular is truly special because this is the first time a car manufacturer has built a model especially for 007. Designed from the ground up, this masterpiece was custom designed for Bond, and solely Bond. 10 were manufactured, and only one was sold to the public. Can you guess the price? The DB10 sold for an astonishing $3.5 million, surpassing the Auction House’s estimate of $1.4-$2.1 million! Too bad the owner can’t show off his new set of wheels on the road, the car has no road certifications, constructed solely for the film. At least the owner won’t have to worry about scratches and dents!
