What's the news?

One of the hyper-exclusive Aston Martin DB10s, built especially for the James Bond film Spectre, has sold at auction for £2.4 million. The car was one of only ten built for the film. Eight were modified (and most destroyed) as part of a stunt driving sequence set on the streets of Rome, but two fully-functioning examples were held back and it is one of these 'hero' cars that has been sold to benefit the charity Médecins Sans Frontiers. The sale took place at the famous Christie's auction house, as part of a sale of props, costumes and mementoes from the film, which is now out on Blu-Ray and download.

The money raised by the auction of the Aston Martin DB10 will benefit Médecins Sans Frontières. MSF - or 'Doctors without Borders' - is a global humanitarian aid organisation that provides medical care and support to victims of armed conflict, epidemics and other disasters.

Aston Martin CEO, Dr Andy Palmer: "The DB10 is one of the rarest cars ever created. Only 10 will ever be made and this is the only one that will be made available for sale. It's great to see this DB10 raising vital funds for Médecins Sans Frontières, it is a fantastic charity that we are delighted to support."
