Aston Martin Has Designed a V12 Vacuum Cleaner

Dyson’s announcement that it will branch out of home appliances and into the automotive market has caught the attention of Aston Martin.

Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer tweeted a picture of an Aston-branded vacuum cleaner at Dyson yesterday after the vacuum manufacturer announced it will build an electric car. The tweet was accompanied with the message “Congratulations @Dyson on joining our independent British car company club. We’re looking forward to branching out into vacuums.”

Aston’s cleaning device just about the prettiest vacuum we’ve laid our eyes on, featuring a svelte design with an integrated rear wing and a futuristic-looking clear canopy. We also like the subtle nod to Aston Martin V12 engines with the cylinder banks. If Aston ever did make a vacuum, we’d totally pick one up, although we probably wouldn’t be able to afford it.

The Aston Martin vacuum is just a joke from one British brand to another, but the designer behind it actually did a pretty solid job. Now let’s hope the design team over at Dyson is as good at designing cars as Aston is at designing vacuums.

Congratulations @Dyson on joining our independent British car company club. We're looking forward to branching out into vacuum's…… ?

    I'm sure the Dyson car will definitely "suck."

    Love this Aston Martin tongue in cheek. However, have now heard the' suck' comment on three automotive sites. Dyson has likely already blown 200 mil of his dough on the old Sakti solid state tech which has yet to power a vacuum. I hope all that talent has a better mousetrap.
