How Many One-Off Aston Martin DB10s Had To Die To Make 'Spectre'?

Offbeat

Better question: How much did they all cost?

If you haven’t seen the trailer for the new James Bond movie “Spectre,” then you need to stop reading this and go watch it. After you do that you’ll better understand why the production crew had to destroy so many Aston Martin DB10s to get the movie made. Bond’s latest ride mixes it up with the villain’s Jaguar C-X75 and is of course shot at by a ton of armed guards. The stunt team must have been given a blank check for their budget because they went through an astounding seven DB10s during filming.

Keep in mind that each DB10 is a one-off—the car won’t see production—and only ten were made for the film. The cost of seven DB10s is about $36 million. That’s a ton of cash but keep in mind that the film has a budget of around $300 million. So, how were all those Aston Martins destroyed? We’ll let chief stunt coordinator Gary Powell explain. “We set the record for smashing up cars on Spectre. In Rome, we wrecked millions of pounds worth. They were going into the Vatican at top speeds of 110 mph. We shot one entire night for four seconds of film.” Is this movie going to be awesome or what?
