Q By Aston Martin Reveals A Very Special DBX

Special Editions / Comments

The Canadian who specced this has some taste.

Aston Martin is more than capable of producing breathtakingly gorgeous machines, but if you're willing to part with some more cash, the British luxury marque will happily indulge your desires for personalization. Like so many other high-end automakers, AM has a bespoke division that can produce almost anything you can imagine, and it has turned out some spectacular creations. Q by Aston Martin, as the division is known, has worked on numerous vehicles from the DB11 to the DBX, and it's the latter that has again received some work in today's story. The last time we covered such a car, it was a sinister-looking build, but the Aston Martin DBX that the Q division has worked on now is all class.

This latest creation comes from Aston Martin Toronto and is called the 2022 DBX Great Lakes Specification, inspired by the Great Lakes lying between the US and Canadian borders. Hence, the car has been finished in a rich Seychelles Blue, a color first seen on an Aston Martin nearly 60 years ago. The 22-inch ribbon-diamond-turned wheels are especially noteworthy since they feature hand-painted Seychelles Blue accents, marking the first time that Q by Aston Martin has ever commissioned a painted wheel. The balance of blue with silver accents for the side vents, glasshouse, diffuser, hood vents, and badges is perfectly executed, but no bespoke commission is complete without some work to the cabin.

Open a door and you are greeted by Dark Knight Caithness leather that Aston Martin says was chosen to symbolize the stillness of Lake Erie and the depth of Lake Superior. The silver accents continue here too, with machined and knurled billet aluminum trim elements tying in with door-sill plaques that are engraved with the silhouette of Lake Ontario on the driver's side and Lake Erie on the passenger's side. Its arrival was timed to coincide with the first-ever Aston Martin Owners Club's Great Lakes Gathering, a Concours d'Elegance event where club members met on the shores nearest the intersections of Lake Ontario and Lake Erie in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. There's no word on what this bespoke creation cost, but you can be sure that it wasn't cheap.
