The first Aston Martin DBX707 customer car has rolled off the assembly line at St Athan, Wales. The world’s most powerful luxury SUV will be sold in more than 50 countries globally and boosts local employment with more than 100 new skilled jobs created.
Inspected by the Secretary of State for Wales, Simon Hart MP and Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Wales, David Davies MP, the very first Aston Martin DBX707 customer car is hand built at the British ultra-luxury manufacturer’s facility in St Athan, Wales. The car elevates Aston Martin to the pinnacle of the luxury SUV segment with a unique combination of outstanding performance, supreme dynamics, unmistakable style, and absolute luxury.
Aston Martin is immensely proud to be manufacturing industry-leading products like DBX707 from a world-class facility in Wales, and we are delighted to see the very first model completed. As the first car delivered through the product development cycle under the leadership of Lawrence Stroll, Executive Chairman of Aston Martin Lagonda, DBX707 is a symbol of the new era for Aston Martin and the brand’s ability to combine ultra-luxury and high-performance. The initial reaction from customers and media has been tremendous, and as we ramp-up DBX707 production at St Athan, it is fantastic that we have also had the opportunity to grow our team and create more employment opportunities for people from the local community. Wales has a rich tradition of industrial and engineering excellence and we’re excited to be forging the future and to support that proud heritage. – Michael Straughan, Chief Operating Officer of Aston Martin Lagonda
