Top Gear speaks to Aston Martin about the DB10

Aston Martin DB10

Top Gear has interviewed Aston Martin’s design director about the DB10 designed specifically to appears in SPECTRE.

Marek Reichman tells Top Gear that Sam Mendes briefed the car manufacturer that he wanted the “poster car” for every boy seeing a 007 movie for the first time and how the design philosophy of the DB10 was influenced by the DB5. He goes on to reveal that the DB10 is based on the V8 Vantage but with a longer wheelbase and a wide track closer to the One-77 and with a 4.7-litre V8.

He then goes on to say more:

Marek teases “maybe there’s something there you won’t expect” before going on to say “focus on what James Bond’s hands are doing” and “It has a big part to play in the story. It’s going to do some things you might not expect.”

I hope that doesn’t mean the car is too gadget laden, meaning the film makers really have abandoned the days of Casino Royale and few gadgets. Carefully done, okay, but please don’t let’s get stupid again.
