to celebrate its automotive partnership with the henley royal regatta–founded in 1839 and one of the most historic rowing fixtures–aston martin has created a one-off ‘DB11’. the specification of this custom ‘henley regatta DB11’ was carefully selected by the aston martin design team. it features a raft of recently launched options and explores the full gamut of exclusive paint and upholstery colors, material finishes and craft features, including some bespoke elements by Q. the result is a car that is both distinctive and beautifully understated, mixed with classic color combinations and superb contemporary finishes.

starting with the exterior paintwork, the aston martin ‘henley royal regatta DB11’ is finished in ‘diavolo’ red combined with a satin ‘scintilla’ silver roof. carbon fiber features extensively on the exterior, with both the carbon fiber body pack (front splitter, side sills, and rear diffuser) and carbon fiber exterior pack (side strakes, hood blades, and mirror caps) selected from aston martin’s bespoke personalization collection Q, then treated to a distinctive satin finish.

a set of 20” gloss black directional wheels with diamond turned faces and a smoked finish, plus carbon fiber exhaust finishers, smoked tail lights, exterior black details and a carbon fiber wings badge complete the exterior’s dark detailing aesthetic.

inside, the design team went for a scheme that reverses the exterior colours, with extensive use of metallic black leather and a Q trim split that introduces flashes of ‘chancellor’ red leather on the seats and door panels. ‘chancellor’ red contrast stitching unites the two upholstery hues and highlights the meticulous craftsmanship typical of aston martin interiors. swathes of  ‘obsidian’ black alcantara are used on the headlining and cantrails, while a ‘shadow’ chrome jewellery pack adds another sleek and subtle layer of detailing.
