Yes, you read that right Aston Martin’s premium submarine in collaboration with Triton Submarines, is almost ready for sale to the public.

The submersible features sports-car levels of design and performance. Named the Neptune, the submarine will top out at just over 5 knots (5.7 mph/9.2 km/h). It will also have a maximum dive depth of 1,640ft (500m).

Look inside the sub and you’ll find a luxurious interior that features hand-stitched leather seats and a full carbon fibre trim. As Triton’s CTO John Ramsey says, “The interior is quintessentially Aston Martin- a luxurious mix of hand-stitched leather and high-performance carbon fibre, assembled without obstructing the panoramic sight-lines that Triton submersibles are famous for”.

Aston Martin’s design team has been hard at work, with potential buyers able to choose from three styling specifications, each offering a combination of colours and trim selected to accentuate the vessel’s mix of sporting, luxury and maritime qualities.

Marek Reichman, VP & Chief Creative Officer, Aston Martin, outlines the thinking that went into Aston Martin’s design of the Neptune:

“The exterior design of Project Neptune owes a lot to the pursuit of performance. As with the Aston Martin Valkyrie, the hyper-car we are developing with Red Bull Advanced Technologies, we have afforded as much attention to the hydrodynamics of the underside as we have the visible surfaces. Some of that detail may never be seen, but its effect will certainly be felt.”

“Project Neptune’s interior was a great challenge. Unlike a sports car where the interiors are installed into an open-sided cabin before the doors are fitted, everything you see inside will be lowered through the upper-hatch and assembled within the completed sphere of the pressure hull. We have been able to present a congruous aesthetic that defies its multi-part complex installation”.

If you’re feeling rather flush, Aston Martin and Triton Submarines are currently offering potential buyers the opportunity to reserve a Neptune ahead of production…
