Aston Martin brings a more dramatic look of its DB9 Carbon Black and Carbon White editions with the V8 Vantage N430 Special to Geneva, offered in both Coupe and Roadster styles.
Besides showing the "Q by Aston Martin V12 Vantage S" and "Q by Aston Martin Vanquish Volante", the British marque also created the Q Lounge concept, which it says, "will be the blueprint for similar bespoke specification rooms in selected Aston Martin dealerships around the world".
General Manager of VIP and Q by Aston Martin Sales, Matthew Bennett, explained:
“The service is a natural extension of what many of our customers have expected of us for many years. The process of creating and specifying a new Aston Martin can take some time – time that our customers rightly expect to savour. What Q by Aston Martin adds to that already exciting process is the freedom to think beyond specification sheets and options lists – to challenge the designers and engineers here at Gaydon to use their talents to produce something truly remarkable, and unique.”
