First and only Aston Martin DB10 to be auctioned 18th February

If you are familiar with the Aston Martin DB10 sports car, then you are either one or both of two things: a car aficionado and/or a James Bond fan.

Now, one of only 10 models in existence will be going under the gavel for bidding next month, marking the first time a private individual will have the prestige of owning a piece of history, a piece of luxury, and a piece of Hollywood.

Frankie Muniz, the actor you may remember from the once popular sitcom Malcolm in the Middle, has finally decided to part ways with the 1995 Volkswagen Jetta you see pictured here.
