Aston Martin teamed up with Airbus to create luxurious helicopter
Aston Martin and Airbus have teamed up to create a specially designed ACH130 helicopter.
The new ACH130 represents the first helicopter Aston Martin has ever created, according to the automaker.
"[The ACH130 marries] ACH's key values of excellence, quality and service with Aston Martin's commitment to beauty, handcrafting and automotive art to bring a new level of aesthetics and rigorous attention to detail to the helicopter market," Airbus wrote in a statement.
This isn't the first time Aston Martin has dabbled in designing mobility options besides cars: it unveiled its first motorcycle, the AMB 001 in 2019, and a bicycle — made in partnership with bicycle manufacturer Storck — in 2017.
"This first application of our design practices to a helicopter posed a number of interesting challenges but we have enjoyed working through them," Aston Martin's VP and CCO Marek Reichman said in a statement.
