We are used to seeing large and quite unattractive submarines making an appearance in movies and the news. The last thing we expected is to see a luxury-grade underwater robot. The famous luxury car maker Aston Martin has collaborated with Triton Submarines, which resulted in this gorgeous, metallic, underwater masterpiece. Read on to learn about the future-proofed Aston Martin Submarine.
Aston Martin and Triton Submarines have called this project “Neptune.” The automaker, also referred to as “James Bond’s car of choice,” took its time to share details about the upcoming underwater car. The company said that this design came from a partnership with Triton Submarines and “has shaped a unique concept that will lead to an exclusive, strictly-limited edition vehicle.” That being said, this privilege won’t be available to everyone, and should you ever imagine yourself in this vehicle, you are better off starting to save money.
The pictures reveal only a concept design. However, it is believed that in the future we will see a more detailed picture of the Aston Martin Submarine. It thought that the project will advance to the point that the vehicle will be able to support three persons in it.
Like mentioned above, the code-name for the Aston Martin Submarine is Neptune, and the renderings reveal a sleek and mesmerizing vehicle that is hard to believe is from our planet. In a press release on the automaker’s website, the executive vice president and chief creative officer at Aston Martin had beautiful words about the project.
“Project Neptune is defined by its sleek, elegant exterior,” said Marek Reichman. “We have used forms and proportions that express the same devotion to design, engineering and beauty that shape our cars.”
The Neptune project is a combination of Aston Martin’s unique, luxurious and sleek style and Triton’s skills in functional engineering submarines. It is not a secret that many figures in science, such as explorers, researchers, and others, use their subs for expeditions.
The images also feature a bubble-shaped cockpit that looks top-notch. The bold, pointy pontoons grabbed our attention as well. It is worth mentioning that Aston Martin aims to craft a beautiful-looking underwater vehicle that will be safe above everything and offer a safeguard to the passenger (later believed to be a three-passenger vehicle.)
Do you think the Aston Martin Submarine is going to meet its release date to the public? Is this underwater vehicle something you would like to own? Let us know in the comments.
