Lotus Evora Sport 410

Bond Lotus Esprit S1

Anyone who’s a fan of James Bond will remember the iconic Lotus Esprit casually driving onto the beach after a little underwater adventure. I think it was one of the classic movie moments of my youth, so much so that I even had a model replica of said car, complete with real firing missile launchers above the engine bay that fired tiny orange missiles that were lost to the naked eye of an 8 year old within about 10 minutes of first use.

Anyway, it appears I’m not the only one with fond memories of that car, as Lotus has released the Evora Sport 410 decked out in a very similar fashion to that old Esprit. Below is all the official words from the press release, but the important part is that it will come to the US! ūüôā

Aston Martin DB10 – Nice price if you can afford it

Aston Martin DB10  Front Three Quarter low res-2

The highly coveted and incredibly rare Aston Martin DB10 made for the latest James Bond film, Spectre, went under the auctioneer’s gavel at Christie’s in London tonight.  The bidding was tense and exciting before a final bid of an amazing £2,434,500.

The buyer now owns a true piece of automotive history; the only Aston Martin DB10 to be made available for public sale. Celebrating the great British brand’s half century with Bond, which started with the iconic DB5, the DB10 gives a glimpse of the future design direction for the next generation of Aston Martins. Production of the DB10 was strictly limited to 10 models of the bespoke sports car which was developed and hand-built by the designers, engineers and artisan craftspeople at Aston Martin’s Gaydon headquarters in the UK for the latest Bond film, Spectre.

Eight of the DB10’s were modified for filming, but two of those produced were kept back as show cars for display purposes only and the DB10 auctioned is one of them.

The money raised by the auction of the Aston Martin DB10 will benefit M√©decins Sans Fronti√®res.¬† MSF – or ‚ÄėDoctors without Borders‚Äô ‚Äď 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. ‚ÄúThe 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‚Äôs great to see this DB10 raising vital funds for M√©decins Sans Fronti√®res, it is a fantastic charity that we are delighted to support‚ÄĚ.

Aston Martin DB10 – James Bond’s New Car

Only 10 of these beauties will ever be built, and they’re absolutely stunning. Not too much details apart from you get to see them in action in next years November release of the new James Bond movie – Spectre. Glad to see Aston and 007 continuing their partnership – it was never quite the same when he jumped into a BMW (although I still think the Z8 has one of the best car rear-ends in history, so won’t complain too much).

Every Bond in a Car Chase

If you like cars, then you have to like car chases. And Bond, James Bond has been in a few good ones.
