Aston Martin has revealed it will be launching its new ‘Q Commission’ service at the upcoming Geneva motor show. The new offering will further expand the brand’s existing Q by Aston Martin customisation division.
The luxury British carmaker says wealthy car aficionados will now be able to commission the design and build of completely unique vehicles in collaboration with Aston Martin’s design team.
The company’s global dealership network is said to be already working closely with Commission to create ultra-limited run series with features and design elements that are distinct to their regions and customers.
“It’s a commissioning process,” says Matthew Bennett, general manager for the Q by Aston Martin service. “The customer is working much more closely with us here at Gaydon. The only limit is your imagination – every new commission starts with a blank sheet of paper.”
Design boss Marek Reichman describes Commission as “fulfilling a creative need – we’re experts providing a consultation, like a Savile Row tailor or a yacht builder.”
Examples of previous commissions by Q by Aston Martin include the CC-100 Speedster Concept created for the company’s centenary in 2013 and the Vantage GT12 Roadster, a one-off open-top version of the extreme 592 bhp race-bred Vantage GT12 Coupe.
To show off some of its skills, Aston Martin will be unveiling a special DB11 in Geneva next month. Finished in a one-off “Zaffre Blue” paint, the car features custom gloss, satin twill and forged carbon-fibre elements such as the front splitter, side sills, rear diffuser side strakes, bonnet strakes and door mirrors.
