The “exclusive, strictly-limited edition” Aston Martin‘s luxury vehicle is finally out for sale for JUST £4 million 🤑🤑 (which does, at least, include pilot training – means it’s out of reach for all but the most deep-pocketed of ocean exploration fans) – but it’s not a car, it’s a submarine.
As if developing a world-beating hypercar and futuristic, show-stopping concept car isn't enough, Aston Martin has also been busying itself designing a cutting-edge submarine.
Aston Martin’s unexpected submarine collaboration with underwater specialists Triton has been finalized which will soon allow the British marque’s affluent buyers to enjoy the Aston Martin experience 500 metres below the sea’s surface, in a vehicle that is currently codenamed "Project Neptune"
Interior Shots showcase a James Bond-style 3-seat layout offering near 360-degree visibility that would be ideal for Aston-fan 007 to escape his adversaries by water.
007-seas: Money is God. Well now I believe in it and so will you after reading this statement. Most of well-heeled of customers have the chance to be chauffeured into the deep for up to 10 hours.
Can you image that shit 😳🤔?
Need Specs? Topsspeed has got it for you:
Tech specs include a dive depth of 500 meters (1,640 feet), which should provide plenty of leeway when exploring your underwater environment of choice. Top speed is rated at over 5 knots (about 5.7 mph) thanks to improved hydrodynamic efficiency, a reduced frontal area, and increased power. It’ll also offer four times the acceleration as Triton’s flagship model, the 3300/3.
While it’s not quite as quick as something like the Aston Martin Valkyrie, 5 knots is still somewhat speedy for a personal submarine like Project Neptune.
Design teams from both Aston Martin and Triton worked together to produce the design you see here. To our eyes, it definitely looks sharp, with forward-swooping lower pods and carbon fiber blades on the roof. Aston says it comes with an acrylic canopy and iridium coating around the exterior.
Inside, Project Neptune can accommodate up to three people, including two front-seated passengers and a rear-seated pilot. The round canopy provides plenty of visibility around the craft, while the seats come covered in hand-stitched leather. Carbon fiber accents add a dash of sportiness as well.
In other words, the quality won't be compromised at all. At least that’s what Aston Martin promises.
Marek Reichman, Aston’s EVP and Chief Creative Officer, drew comparisons to the Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar, saying, “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.”
Project Neptune is now available for sale. So, what are you waiting for?
Go grab this beauty because this is the kind of thing you’d launch from your mega yacht to impress guests attending your dinner party at sea on the way to Monte Carlo 😌😍😉.
