Aston Martin revealed the new DBX707 – the world’s most powerful luxury SUV. Every area of the car has been enhanced to offer excellent performance, unmatched driving pleasure and great on-road presence.
The exterior and interior of the DBX707 have received a design makeover. The new DBX features a larger front grille and all-new design of DRL complete with new air intakes and brake cooling ducts, plus a new front splitter profile. The satin chrome grille was made bigger to significantly increase cooling airflow to both the ultra-high performance V8 and new 9-speed transmission. Dark satin chrome window surrounds and new louvred hood blades co-ordinate perfectly with the front grille and gloss black splitter. DBX707 also features soft-close doors. A new lip spoiler has been added to the roof wing to reduce lift and increase high speed stability, with a significantly enlarged twin rear diffuser rising to meet the new large diameter quad exhaust system. This new exhaust delivers a unique sound signature. A new rear bumper complete with integrated quarter panel vents accentuate the DBX707’s powerful physique.
Inside, the Sport seats are fitted as standard and come with 16-way electric adjustment as well as heating in front and rear as standard. There are three choices of interior environments – standard-fit Accelerate, which features a mix of leather and Alcantara®, and the optional Inspire which features full Semi-Aniline leather complete with embroidered Aston Martin wings on the headrest.
Customers can customize their SUV with the help of Q by Aston Martin, the brands bespoke service. Offering an extensive palette of options, each ‘Q by Aston Martin – Commission’ will be completely tailored to the customer.
To offer more power and torque, the DBX’s 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine features ball bearing turbochargers and a bespoke engine calibration. Also new to Aston Martin’s flagship high performance SUV is a 9-speed ‘wet clutch’ automatic transmission. This high-performance transmission allows output of the 4.0-litre V8 to be lifted to an impressive 707PS and 900Nm, increases of 157PS and 200Nm over the DBX (V8). Launch capability is also improved, which contributes towards the DBX707’s 0-62mph time of 3.3 seconds.
The DBX707 features Carbon Ceramic Brakes. Measuring 420mm front and 390mm rear, these CCB discs are gripped by 6-piston calipers. Wheels and tyres are 22in as standard (in a choice of Sport and Ribbon designs), with an optional 23in alloy wheel offered in a choice of textured black or satin black with diamond turned highlights.
Aston Martin’s new SUV offers exceptional handling. Featuring the basic architecture and triple volume air chambers of the DBX V8 – already considered as the best-handling SUV in the market – DBX707 has a dedicated chassis tune optimized to its uncompromising demands.
To enhance body control and steering response, DBX707 features new damper valving and recalibration of dynamic spring volume switching. The electronic power steering system has also been adjusted to improve steering feel. Combined with tighter management of heave (vertical movement over bumps and crests or in compressions), pitch (when the car dives under braking or squats under acceleration) and body roll, DBX707 gives the driver easier ability to adjust the yaw of the car with natural pedal or steering inputs.
The world’s most powerful luxury SUV’s production is due to begin in Q1 of 2022, with first deliveries scheduled to commence early Q2 2022.
