FRANKFURT, GERMANY – April 9, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The Aston Martin DB10 – the ultimate car for the world’s most famous spy, James Bond – is this year’s winner of the prestigious Design Trophy, awarded by German magazine Auto Zeitung.
Readers of the influential European title have voted the DB10 – exclusively built for Bond and set to feature in the upcoming movie Spectre – a clear winner in the contest’s ‘sports cars’ class.
Marek Reichman, Chief Creative Officer of Aston Martin Lagonda, said: “Celebrating our 50-year association with Bond, which started with the iconic DB5, the DB10 is doubly significant as, aside from its place in the new film, it also provides a very real glimpse of the future design direction for the next generation of Aston Martin sports cars.”
He added: “We are honoured that our car has been voted a winner by the readers of this important magazine.”
Production of the Aston Martin DB10 is strictly limited to just 10 bespoke sports cars, created especially for James Bond.
The Auto Zeitung Design Trophy reader vote was held for the third time in 2015. This year’s competition involved more than 50 models in five categories.
