I don't think so, but there were some early accelerators that had a 68010, if I am not wrong.

BBoAH brings up these results:

None shipped with it from the factory, but many people have fitted one in place of the standard 68000 for some minor benefits.

Aye. The 68010 is a little bit faster than 68000, but not 100% compatible with 68000 instructions IIRC.....so it may cause problems with some 68000 software on the Amiga. I think that's why it was never really shipped commercially on Amiga products.

Why do you ask Jeff?

It could also be that the improvements were marginal when compared to the 68020 (which is less compatible but much faster), and so it wasn't really worth it. The 68010 just added some design tweaks and a couple of new instructions that arguably should've been in the 68000, so was only about 10% faster in benchmarking and practically the same speed in real world use. Some special software can make use of the new capabilities (WHDLoad being the obvious example), but anyone looking for a substantially faster machine would go for a 68020 accelerator.

Biggest noticeable feature for other vendors outside Amigaland was probably the fact that the 68010 could be used with an external MMU (albeit a crappy one)

Just curious, that s all.
There are compat problems. Ex: stackframe structure is different. You cannot push sr and addressvand then rte.
And there is a vbr so software monitors like hrtmon do not need a nmi button.
