London: Gary Powell, the chief stunt coordinator of SPECTRE, revealed that the team behind the film had destroyed Aston Martin DB10 sports cars worth 24 million pounds for the movie. "We set the record for smashing up cars for SPECTRE. In Rome, we wrecked millions of pounds worth," Mr Powell told Event Magazine.

"They were going into the Vatican at top speeds of 110 mph. We shot one entire night for four seconds of film." During the shooting of a chase scene in Italy, a total of seven specially-designed Aston Martin DB10 sports cars were destroyed. The sports cars were equipped with the iconic ejector seat.
