Aston Martin and Bond celebrate their 50 year partnership during DB10 tour

Aston Martin’s DB10 Tour came to Newport Pagnell on Saturday to celebrate the brand’s more than 50-year association with the Bond film franchise.

The event was the latest instalment in a nationwide dealership tour marking the forthcoming release of Spectre which premieres on October 26th. Guests of Aston Martin Works were given an exclusive preview of the iconic DB10, the latest bespoke Aston Martin built for Bond, of which there are only ten in the world.
