Having sold out almost all of the initial ACH130 Aston Martin Edition production run faster than anticipated, Airbus Corporate Helicopters (ACH) has committed to continuing production.
A special version of the ACH130 helicopter, the edition features a range of interior and exterior designs created by Aston Martin.
Little more than two years after launch, ACH has sold all but one of the 15 helicopters covered by its initial production commitment. Orders have come from across the world, including from Southeast Asia, Europe, Latin America, New Zealand and North America.
Now ACH has decided to commit to producing another 15 examples to address the continuing interest.
“There’s no question that bringing together our values of excellence and quality with Aston Martin’s commitment to high-performance automotive elegance has resulted in a helicopter that always excites customers,” said Frederic Lemos, head of ACH. “But we really did not imagine that the market would move so fast, so I’m delighted to be able to commit to these future production slots.”
“As an ultra-luxury brand, Aston Martin is passionate about collaborating with designers and engineers from other disciplines to create special products that represent both our brand values and design ethos,” said Marek Reichman, Aston Martin’s executive vice president and chief creative officer. “We are delighted with the high interest in the ACH130 Aston Martin Edition and look forward to continuing our fantastic relationship with ACH.”
