There was a spectacular sight to see in Newport Pagnell as the latest James Bond car roared into town.

The Aston Martin DB10 – built exclusively for the new movie Spectre – was seen by more than 500 people who travelled from across the country to be within touching distance of it.

There are just 10 of these sports cars in the entire world –all of which are used in the highly anticipated film, which premieres in London on Monday.

Driver Mark Higgins – the man behind the wheel for the extreme driving scenes in three Bond films – visited the historic Newport Pagnell showroom to share his experience of being a stuntdriver for Daniel Craig.

Paul Spires, managing director at Aston Martin Works, said: “The whole day was a superb occasion. I was thrilled to see so many of our customers come along to see for themselves the incredible DB10.

“It was also a real delight to see so many youngsters – potential Aston Martin customers of the future – join us on the day.”

Visitors had the chance to see one of the Aston Martin DB5s used in the previous blockbuster Bond film, Skyfall, as well as having the opportunity to drive the latest road model, the DB9 GT.
