Luxury Sub

The name Aston Martin is often associated with luxury cars, but if the company gets its way, it will also be a company that designs luxury submarines.

This week, the company announced a new design for a luxury submersible vehicle it’s currently calling Project Neptune. Designed in collaboration with submarine maker Triton Submarines, Project Neptune is meant to combine the best of Triton’s diving and submarine operation experience with Aston Martin’s luxury design and craftsmanship.

To ensure it truly captures the identities of both companies, the luxury sub will be based on one of Triton’s existing three-person submarine platforms, which Aston Martin will use as a starting point to explore new designs and features. A concept image of Project Neptune depicts a sleek design, with a bubble-like cockpit at its center that provides a nearly 360 degree view.

“We have used forms and proportions that express the same devotion to design, engineering and beauty that shape our cars, such as the Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar project,” said Aston Martin executive vice president Marek Reichman.

The submarine isn’t being built just yet, though, so it will probably be some time before we it’s “periscope up” Project Neptune. When it does get made, however, it will be “an exclusive, strictly-limited edition vehicle.” In other words, it won’t be cheap — so you’ll want to start saving up now.
