ASTON MARTIN DB10 BEGINS DEALERSHIP TOUR
The Aston Martin DB10 that features in the James Bond movie Spectre has begun a tour of dealerships, beginning with Newport Pagnell.
More than 500 people turned up to visit the Aston Martin Works to see the sport car manufacturer's newest creation.
Premiering in cinemas on Monday October 26, Spectre features an iconic car chase between the DB10 and a Jaguar C-X75.
Stunt driver Mark Higgins, who drove the DB10 for the film also attended the event, and was able to impart some of his experiences of the making of Spectre to the crowd.
The new DB10 was shown alongside a classic Aston Martin DB5, which had previously been used in the film Skyfall.
Guests were also challenged to test their own driving skills – though in a virtual reality. Asked to post their quickest times on a Playstation 4 simulator, guests were later given prizes.
Paul Spires, Aston Martin Works Managing Director said: "The whole day was a superb occasion. I was thrilled to see so many of our customers come along to see for themselves the incredible DB10.
"It was also a real delight to see so many youngsters – potential Aston Martin customers of the future – join us on the day."
The DB10 will now continue its tour throughout the country, visiting Aston Martin dealerships throughout the country. A specially-made car, the DB10 is limited to just ten examples – a run that increases the exclusivity and theatre that already surrounds the car.
