Q by Aston Martin, the marque’s personalisation arm, has celebrated the company’s partnership with Bowmore, a single malt distillery, with a limited edition DBX Bowmore Edition.
Signature touches include a striking Bowmore Blue paint job, with a Xenon Grey option while on the inside, the cabin is occupied by an array of polished copper items – including the cupholders and door sills – recycled from the original whiskey distiller!
Each car comes with specially designed Q by Aston Martin accessories such as a Bowmore tweed picnic blanket and leather holdall.
Only 18 of these limited edition DBX will be produced where they will be delivered to their owners at an exclusive Aston Martin Art of Living experience event in Scotland. The owners will get to experience their new SUVs right away; on a 270 km road trip from Edinburgh through the Scottish countryside.
Along their journey, owners of the limited edition DBX will also be treated to fine dining and a private tour of the Bowmore distillery where they will get to hand-fill their own bottle of a 39-year old Bowmore whiskey directly from the wooden barrel!
They will also be given exclusive access to the No 1 Vaults, the oldest maturation warehouse in the world, which has played host to a number of VIPs over the years, including members of the Royal Family.
If that isn’t good after-sales service, we don’t know what is!
The Aston Martin DBX was launched here in October last year, to the tune of RM818k before you go crazy with the options list and taxes.
It’s powered by a Mercedes-AMG-sourced 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8, with 550 hp and 700 Nm of torque. 0 to 100 km/h will take just 4.5 seconds in the all-wheel drive behemoth with a top speed of 291 km/h.
