Aston Martin is now able to help you fulfill your James Bond fantasies beyond just selling you 007's favorite sports car; the iconic British marque is introducing a design service that can construct a complete Bond lair to your specifications.
Dubbed Aston Martin Automotive Galleries and Lairs, and designed to appeal to Aston owners and collectors, it's being revealed in conjunction with this week's lead-up to the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, where the storied British automaker has a major presence.
From high-tech garages to galleries of automotive art and other spaces that range somewhere between Q Branch's lab and a Bond Villain's hideout, it's being presented under the auspices of Q by Aston Martin, the marque’s bespoke personalization service, which also creates custom supercars.
Clients will have the opportunity to work with both Aston Martin's Design Team as well as renowned architects to create their ultimate secret agent-style bolthole. This is the same team that produced the incredible interiors for the Aston Martin Residences tower set to open in Miami in 2022, as well as the brand's stunning dealership and design centers.
“Imagine a home or luxury retreat built around your car,” as Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman says. "Picture creating the ultimate space to showcase your own automotive works of art. This is now achievable with this new offering. For the car enthusiast, the garage is as important as the rest of the house and a bespoke auto gallery designed by Aston Martin that either focuses on showing off the car or is part of a larger, integrated entertainment space takes Aston Martin ownership to the next level.”
As an example, Austria's Obermoser arch-omo ZT GmbH architects have produced a design concept for a lair that could house works of automotive art including the new Aston Martin Valhalla hypercar and the iconic Aston Martin DB5 in a subterranean, circular cocoon, with entertaining, leisure and living spaces centered around it.
Welcome, Mr. Bond....
