What a ridiculously stunning figure the Aston Martin DB10 has been blessed with. Curve upon curve of sculptured perfection. Lines to die for, an amazing rear end and bullet holes instead of louvres. Yowzer. Look at her wheels, even: spiral-centred, razor-sharp spokes splaying out, giving the impression of movement even when stationary. In fact, that’s the car all over. The best-looking cars are designed to look good as they flash by, not as they sit glumly waiting to be let off the leash.
Have I had the pleasure of driving it yet? You bet I have. But, more importantly, I’ve had the extreme pleasure of being driven in it around the Longcross tree-flanked ‘snake’, cut through by Mark Higgins, former WRC pilot, current holder of the title of “greatest save in the history of driving” and the chief Bond stunt driver. Was it good? What do you reckon?
