Q BY ASTON MARTIN
THE ULTIMATE BESPOKE PERSONALISATION SERVICE
Geneva Motor Show 2019
Inspired by gothic art then architecture, and therefore by the dramatic power of its classical origins. Monumental, spiritual and quite unrefined – as the word “gothic” suggests in its etymology. (“Monstrous and barbarous disorder”, Giorgio Vasari).
This form of art has been inspiration for several villain characters and movies, where viciousness appeals and leads the plot.
Vantage – Geneva 2019
Inspired by the high energy of motor sport. The Cosmos Orange paint expresses the performance of the new Vantage sports car. The intense hue and the dynamic shift between the heat of the reddish side tones and gold highlight is a bold contrast with the technical carbon panels.
DBS - Shanghai Show 2019
Commissioned specially for, and debuting at, the 2019 Shanghai Show, this beautiful DBS features a bespoke hand-made quilted leather flooring, a first for any Aston Martin commission project. On the exterior the body pack, Aeroblade, fender & bonnet louvres are finished in Arden Green paint to create an appearance of beautiful understated elegance.
North Coast 500 Edition
The North Coast 500 has been described as Scotland’s answer to America’s “Route 66”. More than 500 miles of the best the North Highlands has to offer. The route way runs to and from Inverness, venturing round the capital of the Highlands, up the West Coast and back via the rugged north coast.
Commissioned by Aston Martin Edinburgh to celebrate their partnership with the North Coast 500, these beautiful vehicles were painted Seychelles Blue inspired by Prince Charles’ own Aston Martin DB6. The interior of the vehicle was trimmed in the Exclusive Bison Brown leather featuring unique embroidery and finished with hand trimmed tweed accents.
DB11 Volante – Pebble Beach 2018
Specially commissioned by Aston Martin the Americas, the specification of this unique vehicle is inspired by the timeless elegance of the DB4 Convertible. Featuring a Midnight Blue exterior, with an ultra-luxurious Chancellor Red Semi-Aniline Leather interior. The beautiful chrome detailing of the DB4C is echoed in hand polished duotone wheels, polished brake calipers and elegant silver detailing to the lower body.
DB11 Volante – Henley
Created by Q by Aston Martin to celebrate the partnership between Aston Martin & the Henley Royal Regatta 2018, combining contemporary styling with time honoured craftsmanship. Finished in the new Special White Stone paint with a Red Oxide Caithness leather interior, with stainless steel crossed oar motifs and hand painted pale blue accents; inspired by the club markings found on the blades of rower’s oars.
24 Hours of Le Mans
On the 20th June 1959, 150,000 motorsport enthusiasts gathered at the Circuit De La Sarthe in Le Mans, France, to watch the 27th running of the 24 Heures Du Mans. From the start, the works DBR1 run by the David Brown racing department, lapped at a furious pace which continued through the hours of darkness and into the sunrise of the 21st. The pace was too much for the competitors to sustain, and with 4 hours left to go, the number 5 DBR1 took the lead, flanked in second by the number 6. This lead was held until the chequered flag dropped and the race was won. The 27th 24 Heures Du Mans was Aston Martin’s finest hour; cementing the marque in motorsport history and laying the foundation for the brand’s presence in motorsport paddocks around the world, continuing until the present day.
Celebrating 60 years since the historic victory at the 27th 24 Heures Du Mans with a special edition DBS; a unique specification from Aston Martin’s design team in collaboration with Aston Martin Cambridge, engineered & delivered by the Q by Aston Martin | Commission team.
Limited to 24 units only, this special edition commission is available to purchase through Aston Martin Cambridge only.
Heritage Racing Edition
Founded on motorsport, Aston Martin’s racing heritage is as old as the company itself. Whilst competing at the forefront of motorsport through Formula 1 and World Endurance Championship campaigns, the importance of the past in shaping the company cannot be overlooked.

Limited to 60 vehicles only, the 6 liveries are inspired by the colour schemes of iconic cars spanning 100 years of our racing history, from land speed record holders to endurance race winners.

Aston Martin Wings Series
This heritage and strong connection to the RAF has lead Aston Martin to bring its aviation projects together under Aston Martin Wings, an exciting program which will see Q by Aston Martin deliver further limited edition models linked to aviation over the coming years.
In 2015 Aston Martin Cambridge embarked on a series of limited edition models paying tribute to the fast moving world of aviation. Each series of cars was commissioned via Q by Aston Martin.
Fittingly, the DBS Superleggera Corcorde Edition has been commissioned by Aston Martin Bristol which is to be found just a long runway’s length away from Aerospace Bristol at Filton – the place that is now home to the last Concorde ever to fly and the location at which the British Concorde were manufactured.
V8 Vantage S Blades Edition | 2015
Named after the famous British aerobatics team, all five Blade Edition Aston Martins were delivered to customers during a very special day at Sywell Aerodrome where each new owner was treated to an aerobatic flight experience with The Blades.
V12 Vantage S Spitfire 80 Edition | 2016
During both World Wars, Aston Martin’s factories were called upon to build aircraft components, most famously for the Spitfire and Mosquito in WW2. The V12 Vantage S “Spitfire 80” celebrated one of the most iconic designs in British history and the 80th anniversary of the Supermarine Spitfire’s first flight.
Vanquish S Red Arrows edition | 2017
Just ten examples of the Red Arrows Edition were produced, with nine sold to customers before “Red 10” was raffled, raising £1.46 million for the RAF Benevolent Fund. These special cars contained exquisite details linked directly to the aircraft, including switchgear made from the undercarriage leg of a Red Arrows Hawk aircraft.
DBS Superleggera Concorde Edition | 2019
Strictly limited to only ten examples and featuring lavish personalisation via Q by Aston Martin, the DBS Superleggera Concorde proudly celebrates not only the half century since the iconic luxury passenger jet took to the skies, but also the centenary of one of Concorde’s two flag carrying airline operators: British Airways.
