Founded in 1839, the Henley Royal Regatta is one of the most historic rowing races in the world, and it is only fitting that one of the most historic British automakers has partnered up with the event. Aston is that automaker, and they’ve released their Henley Royal Regatta DB11 to celebrate the spirit of the race.
The special DB11, a product of Aston’s Q division, is finished in a Diavolo red paired with a Scintilla silver roof. The entire paint job is finished off with a carbon fiber body kit that includes a front splitter, side sills, and a rear diffuser, along with carbon fiber side strakes, hood blades, and mirror caps to complete the look. A full set of 20-inch gloss black directional wheels with diamond turned faces and a smoked finish accentuate the rest of the exterior design.
Inside, the Q team came up with a color scheme that includes Chancellor red leather seats and door panels offset with metallic black leather. Chancellor red contrast stitching ties it all together, while swathes of black Alcantara stun on the headlining and contrails.
The one-of-a-kind Henley Royal Regatta DB11 served as the main event for the showcase of the 104-year-old car brand at the famed rowing competition. Over 300,000 spectators flock to Henley-on-Thames to enjoy the five-day event.
