James Bond may be the undisputed king of suave sophistication, but England’s secret weapon also has a habit of being particularly reckless with his belongings. Over the years, 007 has messed up pretty much everything he’s touched, including all of his fancy rides. I bring this up because his latest movie, Spectre, is due to be released in the coming weeks. That might bode well for us, but not for his official ride in the movie, the Aston Martin DB10. Let’s just hope that MI6 did its homework and insured the new DB10. 

Insurance company KwikFit was nice enough to crunch the numbers to determine how much it’s going to cost to insure the DB10. Like any insurance firm worth its salt, KwikFit took into account a number of factors to determine the insurance cost of the Aston Martin movie car. Using Bond’s age (47), number of near-death experiences (100+), likelihood to take the law into his own hands (100%), number of cars written-off so far (30+), and the estimated value of the DB10 (roughly over $920,000), the insurance company arrived at an estimated insurance cost of $30,895.

That may not seem like a lot, but KwikFit also calculated the cars that Bond will face in the movie and added up the insurance costs of his recklessness. Unfortunately for MI6, it could be on the hook for about $2.3 million if Bond lives up to his name and adds the Jaguar C-X75, Land Rover Defender, and Range Rover Sport SVR to his write-offs by the end of the movie.James Bond is no stranger to Aston Martin vehicles, with no less than five models supplied by the Brits since 1964’s "Goldfinger." But unlike the iconic DB5 or the exquisite V12 Vanquish, the DB10 is the first Aston Martin specifically built for the movie. The car is not only unique, but it also previews the next-generation DB9 and, as things stand, the company’s future design language. Needless to say, the upcoming James Bond movie is an eccentric way to introduce a brand-new product, albeit only in concept form.

With Aston Martin experiencing real-life sales problems, let’s hope that it has some kind of plan for all the DB10s that are going to be used in the movie. James Bond may be the company’s most famous ambassador, but he also happens to be the costliest one too.I’m sure that Aston Martin has a plan in place to keep the lineup of DB10 models that will be used in the movie from suffering the same fate as some of Bond’s previous cars. Sure, the car itself was built specifically for the movie, but I’m really hoping that not one of the reported 10 models will get legitimately destroyed. I’m sure it’s going to make for great entertainment, but that’s going to come at the cost of maybe seeing a few auto enthusiasts faint as it happens.

On a more serious note, Aston Martin hasn’t announced its plans on the DB10 other than its starring role in Spectre. There have been rumors that the company might release a few models to the public, but even if that happens, not everybody’s going to get a chance to buy one. First, it’s going to cost a lot of money. Second, it might be so exclusive that even those with the financial capabilities to buy one might get stonewalled at the chance to do so.
Since none of us truly realize what Aston Martin's arrangements are for the DB10, I believe it's best to go see Ghost and attach for the DB10 to make it to the end of the film in one piece. That may be an excessive amount to ask given James Bond's shameless state of mind towards private and open properties, however here's to trusting that he saves the DB10 from getting split into equal parts by a helicopter sharp edge. Despite everything we feel your torment, BMW Z8.Aston Martin discharged one and only photograph of the DB10 starting 12/04/2014, however it's sufficient to give us a look into the organization's future configuration dialect. Despite the fact that it stays unmistakable as an Aston Martin and even as a DB9, the DB10 sports a totally overhauled body shell that mixes new elements and recognizable trademark signs also. Both the slanting hood and the substantial front grille seen on the current DB9 are available on the DB10, however the recent now consolidates the lower air dam for a more forceful appearance. 

At the point when seen from the side, the DB10 showcases a crisper configuration with meaty front wheel curves, strong shoulders and profoundly etched ledges with carbon-fiber side skirts. The front bumpers keep the trademark vent with upper chrome trim, yet the wrinkle is currently more profound contrasted with the DB9's and stretches out toward the entryway. The lodge has additionally been reshaped, sitting lower for a smooth appearance and donning a littler quarter-glass territory.

There are no pictures of the backside as of this composition, yet it shows up as Aston Martin picked a to a great degree short back shade and thin taillights. A metallic-dim paint employment and special, lightweight, 10-talked wheels round off the DB10's hot outside. 

In spite of the fact that the Brits were fruitful sequestered from everything the DB10's inside for a long time, one of our companions figured out how to take a fix of the auto's dashboard at an Aston Martin occasion in France. Not surprisingly, Aston planned a bespoke cockpit for the motion picture auto, jettisoning the vast majority of the styling signs utilized as a part of the current DB9. The dashboard is a considerable measure cleaner now and there's no indication of a customary focus stack. 

The new instrument group looks like that of a race car, including a greater gage in the center and two extra units on every side. Everything is by all accounts secured in fine calfskin sewed together with white string, while the tasteful Aston Martin guiding wheel has been supplanted by a level base unit with Alcantara grasp ranges. 

I beyond any doubt trust this configuration will discover its way into the DB11, which is set to supplant the current DB9.
