As Aston Martin’s bespoke arm, Q by Aston Martin represents the kind of luxury and distinction that only top-shelf money can buy. In their latest move, the brand’s specialists offered their creative take on two separate DB11 models. The first is the DB11 Volante, which celebrates Aston Martin’s ongoing partnership with prestigious rowing event Henley Royal Regatta, and comes on the heels of last year’s DB11 Coupe. The second is the DB11 Classic Driver Edition, which commemorates the 20th anniversary of the world’s first car collectors’ website. You don’t need to see the pictures to know that both cars are stunning in execution and limited in supply. Of course, checking out the pictures certainly won’t hurt.
From the Henley Royal Regatta DB11 Volante, expect a striking paint job of White Stone, along with an interior decked out in Red Oxide Caithness leather. Also featured are carbon fibre bodywork, a black convertible hood, forged gloss black diamond wheels, anodised brake calipers, smoked tail lights, dark exhaust finishers and bonnet meshes. Heading back inside, you’ll discover a range of elegant trims and motifs, including hand-painted pale blue accents, which take direct inspiration from markings on the rowers’ oars. The cost of this elegant beauty? £199,995, to be exact.
Equally as stunning is the DB11 Classic Driver Edition, which pays homage to a website of the same name, and was produced in collaboration with the site’s lead designer, Benjamin Knapp Voith. Limited to just 20 examples, the car hosts a signature colourway of green and grey, and comes as either a V8-powered Coupe or a Volante. Inside is an array of Eifel Green Caithness leather. Look to the headrest to find the Classic Driver logo embroidered in Parliament Green. This one comes in at £199,275. Consider it a collector’s car in every possible sense of the concept.
