Taking the influences from the Aston body form with its flowing lines and the desire to incorporate a strong engineering link to the name (without borrowing the names of any current or previous Aston vehicles) my choice would be the Vector range - Vector curves are beautiful strong and sinuous wave like curves that epitomise the new case design.

Starting with V also gives it an Astonesque sounding name!

Haha, my kids would think of him, but I think of the Raleigh Vector BMX kinda-thing from back in the day!

I propose the Buckingham Collection.

Aston-Martin was named in 1914 following Lionel Martin's success in the Aston hill climb (located in Buckinghamshire). The Aston factory is just up the road in Gaydon.

Also, the name fits nicely with Malvern, it's prestigious and, of course, almost everyone identifies the name as British.

The Avant Collection, as in Avant-garde meaning progressive, innovative, advanced, forward-looking.

Plus it sounds somewhat similar to Aston Martin's Vantage.

I'll play too..

1) Keeping it simple - C1 "Prestige" for a prestige collection.
2) Signature collection.
3) Gaydon collection - Seems to fit the current theme of names...place for the first DB9 made.
4) Vault collection.

Volante - means flying or steering wheel in several languages giving the aviator or motorsport theme plus of course reference to Aston Martin.

Bond Street - combines both Aston and London references and association to high end products.
