Want James Bond's Aston Martin DB10 From 'Spectre'? There's One Available -- But Only One

October 26, 2015

If you're a James Bond fan and you've got six figures of cash burning a hole in your deep, deep pockets, we've got good news and bad news.

The good news is, unlike previous Bond films that have relied on existing cars for the hero and his villain, Spectre features some very custom rides. Aston Martin created a completely new model called the DB10 for Mr. Bond's use.  According to CNN, a total of ten were built, and the company plans to auction off one of them sometime next year.

There's no word on what the starting price might be, but given the car's pedigree, its rarity, and the fact that the existing DB9 starts around $190,000, we'd be pretty surprised if the DB10 didn't go for well above $200,000.

It could sell for much, much more, but there is, of course, the bad news to consider. And that bad news is, the DB10 isn't certified for use on public roads. So, whoever buys it will have some serious bragging rights, but won't be able to take it for a spin around town. 

Then again, if you have that kind of dough, you might have plenty of room on your estate to drive the car around and feel you're getting your money's worth -- if you care about that sort of thing at all.

If you've got a darker streak and find yourself longing for the villain's Jaguar, the news gets worse. That car -- known as the Jaguar C-X75 -- won't be for sale at all. Ever.

The hybrid debuted as a concept at the 2010 Paris Auto Show, and Jay Leno once got to drive it, but the car never made the journey to the assembly line. Fans will have to enjoy it through Leno's eyes:
