Motorboat & Yachting - - NEW GEAR -

Built by Tri­ton Sub­marines rather than the As­ton Martin fac­tory at Gay­don, Project Nep­tune is a per­sonal sub­ma­rine that was de­vel­oped in con­junc­tion with Red Bull Ad­vanced Tech­nolo­gies, who also de­vel­oped the As­ton Martin Valkyrie ‘hy­per­car’.

Im­proved hy­dro­dy­namic ef­fi­ciency, re­duced frontal area, and in­creased power give an an­tic­i­pated ‘sprint’ speed in ex­cess of five knots and ap­prox­i­mately four times the ac­cel­er­a­tion of Tri­ton’s cur­rent flag­ship 3300/3 model.

Ac­cord­ing to John Ram­say, chief tech­ni­cal of­fi­cer at Tri­ton Sub­marines, “The in­te­rior is quintessen­tially As­ton Martin — a lux­u­ri­ous mix of hand-stitched leather and high­per­for­mance car­bon-fi­bre.” There are three De­signer Spec­i­fi­ca­tions to choose from, and “Cus­tomi­sa­tion and per­son­al­i­sa­tion op­tions will be avail­able cour­tesy of As­ton Martin’s be­spoke ser­vice, Q by As­ton Martin.”

The base price is $4 mil­lion from Tri­ton Sub­marines or your lo­cal As­ton Martin dealer.

Leather in­te­rior is an ap­pro­priately high-end touch from As­ton Martin
