Two bona-fide James Bond stars greeted members of Stratstone Club..

The Aston Martin DB10, star of the new James Bond film SPECTRE, arrived hot off the film set to Stratstone Aston Martin locations around the country.

The DB10 tour celebrates the iconic relationship between two British icons, who have now been seen on screen together no less than twelve times. The car which symbolises this best - the Aston Martin DB5 - was also in attendance for a truly unique meeting of past and present.

On an evening filled with surprises, Stratstone guests were given unprecedented access to some of the most famous cars in the history of film.

The star of the show was the stunning Aston Martin DB10, which with its striking, elegant exterior drew all the attention. This particular car was used in several driving sequences and stunts throughout SPECTRE and is still kitted out with stunt driving equipment - even bearing a few scars as a result. A bespoke vehicle for 007, only ten examples were ever produced, though the design influence is said to hint towards future Aston Martin models.

Then there was the DB5. The start of a legacy lasting over 50 years, it's not hard to see why the DB5 created such an indelible impression. It's a trait which the car still retains to this day, with the classic Silver Birch paintwork highlighting the subtle nuances of a car which never went out of style.

The tour encompassed several instalments. Throughout the day, guests were free to explore everything the tour had on offer. They were given the chance to ride in the all-new Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond edition, as well as could test their skills on the responsive Aston Martin driving simulator. A Norton Dominator SS, which appeared briefly in SPECTRE was also on display exclusively with Aston Martin Derby.

In the evening, selected guests of Stratstone descended upon the dealership to discover the true Bond experience, enjoying a selection of canapés and champagne. Stunt driver Mark Higgins, who also worked on both Quantum of Solace and Skyfall, gave an exclusive talk on the behind-the-scenes of everything James Bond.

Julian Shaw, Business Manager at Aston Martin Derby, commented: "We have a DB10 from SPECTRE, and this particular model was the stunt vehicle which Mark Higgins used during the film."

"As part of the customer experience today we're also taking customers out in the DB9 GT to give them a flavour of what the vehicle is capable of. Customers have really enjoyed getting an insight in to the film and exploring the fantastic history between these two brands."
