The vehicle maker also revealed the designs for its first submarine, codenamed Project Neptune. Founded in Florida by L. Bruce Jones and Patrick Lahey, the team at Triton are committed to producing one of the safest and best performing, deep-diving submersibles in the world.

As far as we can tell the wait was worthwhile - especially since Aston Martin in the meantime also delivered the brand new DB11 to go with the keys of the speedboat.

Aston Martin Consulting, an offshoot of the Aston Martin automotive design studio has designed a submarine that will actually be built in a strictly limited number for wealthy customers to hang off the back of their super yachts.

The submersible, which will be put into limited production, is set to be based on Triton's three-person Low Profile platform.

Aston Martin chief creative officer and executive vice president Marek Reichman said: "Project Neptune is defined by its sleek, elegant exterior".

Bradley Yorke-Biggs, Aston Martin's managing director, said that "Project Neptune is a flagship project for Aston Martin Consulting".

After refining its nautical skills on the AM37 powerboat it showed at last year's Monaco Yacht Show, Aston Martin is back in Monaco talking up another project that puts its design expertise to use at sea.

It's not the first time Aston Martin has taken to the water. Aston Marin, the luxury vehicle company which always surprises people with its cool designs, is going to launch a #Submarine next year, Bloomberg reported. Under Reichman's guidance the 1650/3 has morphed from something you might well have seen on the deck of Cousteau's Calypso into to an Aston Martin for the life (sub) aquatic. Founded in 1913, the company recently launched its six-year Second Century plan for sustainable long-term growth.
