Aston Martin is going to sell submarines because why not?
Aston Martin — yes, the century-old auto manufacturer that has long been a favorite of James Bond — has either completely lost its mind or has grown bored building its incredibly powerful, incredibly expensive luxury sports cars, because the company just announced that it’s going to build and sell submarines.
The project, which is being referred to by the codename “Project Neptune,” is a partnership between Aston Martin and luxury personal submersible manufacturer Triton Submarine. At the moment, the project is still in its conceptual stage, but the most current design looks like some kind of amazing cross between a spaceship and a catamaran. That is to say, it looks absolutely awesome.
