The luxury vehicle was one of 10 designed by Aston Martin for the spy film, but was never used in the action sequences as it was kept back as a display car for the London premiere at the Royal Albert Hall in October (15).

The car, the only DB10 to be released for public sale, includes a special plaque signed by 007 actor Daniel Craig and is expected to fetch between $1.5 million and $2.3 million (£1.5 million) went it goes under hammer at Christie's auction house in London on 18 February (16).

The Aston Martin is one of 10 Spectre items to be sold at the auction, along with Bond's Omega watch and Tom Ford cufflinks.

An online auction will also take place between 16 and 23 February (16) and feature memorabilia including a laptop used by Ben Whishaw's tech genius character Q and sunglasses worn by Craig.

Proceeds from the auction will be donated to Medecins sans Frontieres (MSF) and the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS), among other good causes.

Craig took on the role of promoting UNMAS when he was appointed the United Nations' first global advocate for the elimination of mines and explosives in April, 2015.
