Первый вседорожный Aston Martin будет стоить в России более 14 миллионов рублей. Но цену конечного кроссовера при желании можно загнать за облака: возможности подразделения Q by Aston ограничиваются только фантазией заказчика и его финансовой состоятельностью.
Образец тематического креатива британская фирма покажет на Женевском автосалоне. Основным материалом для доработки DBX стал карбон. На первый взгляд, ничего сверхъестественного в этом нет, но в Q by Aston придумали оригинальный метод украшения углепластиками интерьера кроссовера.

Компоненты для отделки салона изготавливаются из цельного специально изготовленного куска карбона. Заготовку собирают вручную из 280 слоев, после чего «выпекают» в течение 12 часов в особой печи, и это только начало: еще 90 часов требуется фрезерному станку, чтобы выточить из полученного куска изделие требуемой конфигурации.
Кроме того, выставочный образец украсят черными 22-дюймовыми колесами оригинального дизайна, карбоновым же аэродинамическим обвесом и специально выдуманным цветом кузова, который получил название Satin Xenon Grey. Стоимость такого DBX не разглашается: очевидно, ее озвучат только потенциальному заказчику.
Q BY ASTON MARTIN:
DBX MEETS THE DARK ART OF CUSTOMISATION
− DBX is now available with three levels of ‘Q by Aston Martin’ customization – Commission, Collection & Accessories
− Luxury brand’s first SUV given bespoke treatment for 2020 Geneva Motor Show
− Geneva example offers inspiration for existing and prospective DBX customers worldwide wishing to

24 FEBRUARY 2020, GAYDON, U.K.: Aston Martin’s DBX has been treated to a touch of personalization magic through Q by Aston Martin, teasing the SUVs darker side ahead of this year’s Geneva International Motor Show and marking the first time the brand’s bespoke service has been implemented on its new SUV.
Featuring a range of bespoke ‘Q by Aston Martin – Commission’ and exclusive ‘Q by Aston Martin – Collection’ design features, this example of the brand’s recently unveiled SUV once again highlights the rule-breaking customization that is achievable through the marque’s ‘Q by Aston Martin’ service.
Marek Reichman, Aston Martin Executive Vice President & Chief Creative Officer said, “While our designer specifications previously demonstrated an incredibly broad range of choice and expression from our existing palette of colors and materials, ‘Q by Aston Martin’ offers the tools to those who have an uninhibited desire to push the boundaries of what is achievable”.
The work of Aston Martin’s award-winning in-house design team - led by Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman - DBX manages to bring a level of sculpture and sleekness to a sector perhaps not normally known for elegance. The fastback look of DBX cleverly positions the visual mass of the car over the rear wheels, just as you see in Aston Martin’s sports cars, but it does so without compromising ingress and egress. Meanwhile, the long-wheelbase not only provides excellent interior packaging but also allows a lower, sleeker roofline, giving elegance to the overall shape. Despite the elegance inherent in this model, Aston Martin’s darker side is personified in this unique example, portraying an aggressive, confident side of the marque through a range of bold features.
‘Q by Aston Martin – Commission’ allows customers to create tailored options for their own personal specifications. The example on display at the Geneva International Motor show features a number of bespoke appointments including 22” gloss black painted wheels complementing the car’s bold exterior. Inside, a bespoke diamond patterned satin chrome aluminum jewelry pack machined from solid sits amongst swathes of Obsidian Black leather. Carbon fiber machined from solid to create a technical finish clads the central console and door inserts, while an expansive single piece of herringbone carbon fiber can be found throughout the floor of the car’s storage area.
Perhaps the most eye-catching bespoke feature that was spec’d in this ‘Q by Aston Martin – Commission’ is found within the DBX’s cabin; a unique carbon fiber finish used for the car’s floating center console and door trims. Delivering a technical finish to the car’s interior, the central piece is machined from a solid block consisting of 280 individual layers of carbon fiber, laid meticulously by hand. After a 12-hour curing process, 90-hours of five-axis milling are required to deliver the stunning finish shown today.
For customers looking for highly-exclusive yet attainable options, look no further than the ‘Q by Aston Martin – Collection’. Featured on the vehicle displayed at Geneva and available to customers worldwide are a special Satin Xenon Grey paint, a carbon fiber lower exterior pack and black anodized tread and sill plaques. Each of these options have previously been developed by the luxury British marque’s in-house design team and are available to order now.
Reichman added, “Of course, the example shown today is just one sphere of inspiration that can be explored, but with DBX providing the ultimate canvas to bring a vision to life, I fully expect to see a wide and broad variety of creations over the coming months”.
Aston Martin will be available at the 89th Geneva International Motor Show on stand 2229 where the DBX styled through ‘Q by Aston Martin’ will be on display from Wednesday, March 4, 2020. The DBX is priced from $189,900 USD in the United States and $218,400 CAD in Canada, not including destination and handling charges of $3,086 and $3,980 respectively; first deliveries will commence in the second half of 2020 in North America.
