Aston Martin has revealed an exclusive new DBX spec dubbed Bowmore Edition, meant to capture the essence of two luxury British brands. Bowmore is a known single malt whiskey distillery.
This exclusive DBX was created by the carmaker’s bespoke service, Q by Aston Martin, and only 18 Bowmore Edition models will be delivered to customers during a private lifestyle experience at Bowmore’s Islay in Scotland.
“Aston Martin DBX has provided the perfect canvas for the highest level of Q by Aston Martin customisation. The Aston Martin and Bowmore brands share the same vision of creating timeless beauty and a lasting legacy, loyal to their heritage but also embracing new methods and this is reflected in the DBX Bowmore edition. Strips from the copper whiskey stills are inlayed into the side strakes and Bowmore Tweed accents the interior, Q by Aston Martin has once again created a beautiful, limited edition Aston Martin,” said Aston Martin exec, Marek Reichman.
Visually, buyers can choose between two exterior colors. The first is Bowmore Blue, brought back exclusively by Q by Aston Martin, while the other is Xenon Grey. Meanwhile, Bowmore-branded copper inlays using copper from the original whisky have been used as accents, whereas the optional black brake calipers provide contrast.
Inside, there are polished copper cup holders, while the sill plaques are made from recycled copper from the Bowmore still. There’s also hand-laid copper foil detailing on the gloss black center console trim inlay, and each car features a selection of specially designed Q by Aston Martin accessories such as the Bowmore tweed picnic blanket and leather holdall.
“Our partnership with Aston Martin continues to be an exciting and enthralling collaboration and the unveiling of this special edition Bowmore DBX is another exciting step on our collective journey. We cannot wait to welcome each of the owners of this beautiful car to our distillery on Islay and show them all that Bowmore and our island home have to offer. Although we make entirely different products, our shared values and passion are very much aligned so you can expect more exciting announcements in the future,” said Francois Bazini, global managing director of Scotch at Beam Suntory, owners of Bowmore.
The Q by Aston Martin DBX Bowmore Edition is on sale globally now, with customer deliveries taking place in Q4 2021.
