For his 24th outing in Spectre, James Bond will be driving the all-new Aston Martin DB10, which was unveiled alongside the new film's name and cast at Pinewood Studios.

Replacing the DBS used by Bond in the last three films, the DB10 was revealed for the very first time today, and will go on to replace the 11-year-old DB9.

The DB10 has been designed specifically for use in Spectre, but is representative of what the next generation of Vantage will look like in 2016. Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer said only 10 examples of the DB10 will be produced, making it "the most exclusive DB ever."

Palmer said the car was "strictly created for James Bond and strictly limited to 10 cars only."

There's no word yet on what gadgets Q-Branch has added to the car, and we can only hope that Bond returns it in better condition than the DBSs in Casino Royal and Quantum of Solace, which were both destroyed.

Rehearsals for Spectre have already begun and the film, starring Daniel Craig as Bond, will be released on 6 November next year.

Despite driving a Bentley in Ian Flemming's first Bond novel, Casino Royale, it was Aston Martin who first provided transport for Bond on the silver screen, with the iconic DB5 in Goldfinger, complete with ejector seat and machine guns.

Bond switched allegiances to BMW during the 90s, with a Z3 in Goldeneye, a remote-controlled 7-Series in Tomorrow Never Dies, and a BMW Z8 in The World is Not Enough, before returning to Aston Martin and the Vanquish in Die Another Day.
