Aston Martin will display a personalised version of its new DBX SUV at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show next month, confirming that the crucial model for the brand will be available through the bespoke 'Q by Aston Martin' service.
Buyers of the DBX can choose from Q by Aston Martin - Commission, which is the fully bespoke service, or Q by Aston Martin - Collection, which is a curated selection of design features available from the marque's personalisation offering. For the show car, Aston has decided to make a dark and brooding DBX by Q, with 22-inch gloss-black wheels, an interior with Obsidian Black leather and a diamond-patterned, satin-chrome aluminium jewellery pack, with carbon-fibre inserts. Even the boot floor is a single piece of herringbone carbon fibre, while the floating centre console and door trims have a unique technical finish - it involves machining the central piece from a solid block of 280 layers of carbon fibre, all laid by hand, and then a 12-hour curing process followed by 90 hours of five-axis milling.
The bodywork of the DBX by Q is finished in Satin Xenon Grey paint, while the lower detailing of the SUV is finished in more carbon fibre. Black, anodised tread and sill plaques are also available to order for the DBX as of right now.
'Broad variety of creations'
Marek Reichman, Aston Martin's executive vice-president and chief creative officer, said: "While our designer specifications previously demonstrated an incredibly broad range of choice and expression from our existing palette of colours and materials, 'Q by Aston Martin' offers the tools to those who have an uninhibited desire to push the boundaries of what is achievable.
"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."
