Aston Martin unveils Project Neptune submarine

British luxury cars manufacturer Aston Martin has announced a partnership with Triton Submarines LLC for Project Neptune a project which aims to produce state–of-the-art submersibles.

Through Neptune, Aston Martin said it is enhancing and expanding its luxury brand with its signatory performance, beauty and elegance, which is why it decided to team up with Triton which is committed to producing the safest and best performing, deep-diving submersibles in the world.

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,” Reichman said.

Project Neptune will be overseen by Aston Martin Consulting, with the ultimate goal of being an exclusive, strictly-limited edition vehicle.

Aston Martin Consulting Managing Director, Bradley Yorke-Biggs described Project Neptune as 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,” Bradley said.

For the project, Aston Martin said Project Neptune will be leveraging on 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.

Already, Aston Martin’s team has transformed Triton’s compact LP platform, creating a vehicle with inherently beautiful proportions.

Commenting on the project, Patrick Lahey, President of Triton Submarines LLC said Triton has always admired Aston Martin, adding that 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,” Lahey said.
