How pleasurable would public transport be if you could travel in style in a bus created by luxury car maker Aston Martin and architect extraordinaire Norman Foster‘s Foster+Partners!

Well, in 2011, Londoners will be able to.

Following their win of the Design A Bus competition launched by Boris Johnson, London’s Lord Mayor, the buses will featured leather seats, recycled wooden floors, lower floors and sky lights, the buses are also more energy efficient. In addition, the engine will be fitted as such to allow for it easily to be removed and replaced with fuel-cell technology when such technology becomes available.

This is definitely a new spin on luxury that I’m sure every city would love.
