British car manufacturer Aston Martin has revealed their latest creation – the Aston Martin DBX707. The newest addition to the DBX lineup promises to become the pinnacle of luxury SUVs thanks to its 4.0-litre V8 engine generating an incredible 697bhp and 663lb-ft of torque.
The DBX707 also comes with a range of mechanical upgrades from the standard DBX including
a new 9-speed wet clutch gearbox which results in faster gear changes compared to the standard torque converter transmissions. This also results in an incredibly quick launch time. Aston Martin claims that the DBX707 will be able to accelerate from 0 to 60mph in just 3.1 seconds which is faster than an Aston Martin Vanquish S and substantially faster than a standard DBX.
“Right from its first introduction the DBX has represented Aston Martin’s dynamic and design values in a way that proves not all SUVs have to conform to the same compromises. With the DBX707 we have pushed the boundaries in every area to create a car which sets new standards of performance and desirability. The fastest, most powerful, best handling and most engaging car of its kind, it propels Aston Martin to the pinnacle of SUV performance”Tobias Moers – CEO of Aston Martin
DBX707 will come with 22-inch wheels as standard with an optional 23-inch option available for those aiming for a more menacing look. The 23-inch wheel option will also bring additional driving benefits, such as improved steering response due to the larger diameter tyres.
Aston Martin DBX707 will retain the standard air suspension system of the DBX V8, as well as a dedicated chassis tune optimised for the increased power output, making it one of the best handling SUVs in the world according to Aston Martin. The electronic power steering system has also been adjusted to improve cornering speeds and grip.
There have also been some changes to the Dynamic Drive modes of the DBX. The DBX707 will feature a “Race Start” feature when the vehicle is in GT Sport or Sport+ modes which will allow for quicker acceleration of the line.
To keep up with the mechanical upgrades, Aston Martin DBX707 has also received a significant exterior update. The 707 features a larger front grille, a new front splitter, a lip spoiler, an enlarged twin rear diffuser to accommodate the quad exhaust system, and a plethora of other upgrades.
When it comes to the interior, Aston Martin will allow customers to choose between the Sport seats fitted as standard, and the comfort seats available as a no-cost option. The DBX707 also features soft-close doors, further increasing the SUV’s luxury appeal.
DBX707 production is due to commence in Q1 of 2022, with the first deliveries scheduled to begin around Q2 of 2022.
