The Aston Martin DB11 is Now Inspired by Sailboats

Aston Martin will have a strong presence at the 2017 Henley Royal Regatta from June 28 to July 2.

As the Official Automotive Partner of the Henley Royal Regatta, Aston Martin has built a special Henley Royal Regatta DB11 that will be displayed at the annual rowing event. The specification of the one-off DB11 was chosen by the Aston Martin Design Team and features plenty of Q by Aston Martin Collection options in addition to bespoke elements by Aston Martin’s Q by Aston Martin Commission.

The exterior of the sports coupe is finished in Diavolo Red, contrasted by a Satin Scintilla Silver roof and roof strakes. There’s plenty of carbon fiber present, with both the Carbon Fiber Body Pack and Carbon Fiber Exterior Pack having been installed. Gloss Black 20-inch wheels adorn all four corners, featuring diamond-turned faces and a smoked finish. The rear is a bit more menacing with carbon fiber exhaust tips and smoked tail lights. Aston’s Exterior Black Pack and Carbon Fiber Wings Badge complete the cosmetic changes.

Inside the cabin, there’s plenty of Metallic Black leather and a Q by Aston Martin Trim Split that introduces flashes of Chancellor Red leather on the seats and door panels. In a way, it’s a reverse of the exterior, which is majority red. The Chancellor Red shade can also be found on the contrast stitching, while the headliner and cantrails use Obsidian Black Alcantara. There’s also a Shadow Chrome Jewelry Pack to add a bit more luxury to the already well-appointed DB11.

The car will serve as the centerpiece to Aston Martin’s display at the Henley Royal Regatta, where a fleet of Aston Martin vehicles will also be supplied to transport key Regatta official and VIP guests. The event will kick off on Wednesday, June 28th and last through to Sunday, July 2nd.
