Aston Martin recently made public several images of its upcoming Project Neptune submarine, which fully disclose what the ultra-exclusive, three-seater submersible will look like when it makes its official debut later this year.
Aston Martin and Triton Submarines announced the successful completion of the design phase for Project Neptune, and the commencement of the first production model. The two companies have been working hard to create just the right balance of hydrodynamics, style and interior luxury to properly reflect the values of each company.
“The exterior design of Project Neptune owes a lot to the pursuit of performance,” says Aston Martin EVP and chief creative officer Marek Reichman. “As with the Aston Martin Valkyrie, we have afforded as much attention to the hydrodynamics of the underside as we have the visible surfaces. Some of that detail may never be seen, but its effect will certainly be felt.”
The submarine will have ability to hold two passengers and a pilot with 360-degree visibility, dive 500 meters under the surface, and have a sprint speed of more than 5 knots.
“Project Neptune is one of several carefully curated luxury projects we are working on away from the automotive space,” Matthew Clarke, Aston Martin General Manager of Marketing and Communications told The Drive. “Projects of this nature enable us to further grow our brand into new aspects of the luxury world that appeal to both our existing and future customers.”
A range of three Designer Specifications created by Aston Martin’s in-house design team demonstrate the breadth of expression available through considered combinations of colour and trim, each accentuating Project Neptune’s sporting, luxury and maritime characteristics. Customisation and personalisation options will be available courtesy of Aston Martin’s bespoke service, Q by Aston Martin.
