Aston Martin has announced a creative collaboration with Triton Submarines LLC, the acclaimed manufacturer of state–of-the-art submersibles.
Codenamed ‘Project Neptune’, the venture enables Aston Martin to further enhance and grow the brand into new aspects of the luxury world, with all the performance, beauty and elegance one has come to expect from the British marque.
Triton has expertise in the design, manufacture and operation of submersibles for researchers, explorers and superyacht owners.
Founded in Florida by L. Bruce Jones and Patrick Lahey, the team at Triton are committed to producing the safest and best performing, deep-diving submersibles in the world.
Project Neptune marries Triton’s diving and operational expertise with Aston Martin’s design, materials, and craftsmanship.
Overseen by Aston Martin Consulting, the partnership has shaped a unique concept that will lead to an exclusive, strictly-limited edition vehicle.
Project Neptune takes Triton’s acclaimed Low Profile (LP) three-person platform as a basis upon which to explore a new iteration of Aston Martin’s progressive design language.
Aston Martin Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman said: “Project Neptune is defined by its sleek, elegant exterior. 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.”
Patrick Lahey, President of Triton Submarines LLC said: “We have always admired Aston Martin. The marque represents a deeply held passion for technology, engineering and timeless, elegant design. From our first interaction, it was apparent that Triton and Aston Martin were natural partners and our complimentary values will be realised in this truly exciting project.”
Aston Martin Consulting Managing Director, Bradley Yorke-Biggs said: “Project Neptune is a flagship project for Aston Martin Consulting. It is a clear and engaging demonstration of how Aston Martin’s expertise in sports car design and craftsmanship can be extended into new aspects of the luxury world.”
