Aston Martin and Bombardier have recently signed a letter of intent outlining a partnership that would see the luxury British automotive brand collaborate on custom design services for Bombardier business jet clients.

While this isn’t the first time Aston Martin has taken to the skies (they’ve previously worked with Airbus Corporate Helicopters to create the ACH130 Aston Martin Edition), it is the first time Bombardier’s business jet clients will have the opportunity to borrow from the creative minds of Aston Martin’s bespoke division to create something special in the Challenger and Global business jet ranges.

“Bombardier’s discerning customers have come to expect our products’ signature smooth ride and the company’s no-compromise approach to design, performance, and reliability at every level of our portfolio,” said Peter Likoray, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, New Aircraft, Bombardier.

“We would be proud to add a new facet to this experience that channels Aston Martin’s distinct aesthetic approach.”

Aston Martin owners familiar with the hand-craftsmanship and detailing on vehicles like the Vantage, DB11, DBS Superleggera, and the new SUV DBX can now incorporate similar fabrics, stitching, and finishes if that’s something they desire or opt for an entirely different concept.

“Aston Martin has a highly refined set of automotive design principles, driven by the meticulous application of proportion, craft, and technical innovation,” said Aston Martin Vice President and Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman. “Bombardier’s customers share our owners’ desire for unique contemporary design statements. We are truly excited at the prospect of collaborating with Bombardier’s accomplished design team to bring our respective design expertise together. Challenger and Global aircraft will give us an opportunity to take Aston Martin design to new heights.”

Bombardier’s long-range, large-cabin Global aircraft has picked up a few awards for product design, while its mid-sized Challenger platform is a top choice among top corporate flight departments and charter operators worldwide.
