An Aston Martin Vanquish isn’t going to take you far underwater, but an Aston Martin submarine totally will. The English automaker has teamed up with Triton Submarines LLC to create Project Neptune, what may be the most bizarre and modern looking submarine to date.
Triton builds submersibles for superyacht owners and researchers on a regular basis, giving them the experience know-how to create a safe sub. As for Project Neptune, it was designed with Triton’s “Low Profile (LP) three-person platform,” which the company is known for. For its overall design, the sub utilizes the design and materials that Aston Martin vehicles are known for. When all aspects are combined, the Project Neptune is born.
“Project Neptune is defined by its sleek, elegant exterior,” said Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman. “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.”
“We have always admired Aston Martin,” commented Patrick Lahey, President of Triton Submarines LLC. “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 realized in this truly exciting project.”
Will Project Titan remain a concept, or will it head to production? Aston Martin says that it will lead to an “exclusive, strictly-limited edition vehicle.” We can assume that this means there is a production version planned of Project Neptune, but it will be incredibly limited.
