The new DBX707 is an SUV like no other

Aston Martin has introduced a new 697bhp DXB flagship to take on the fastest performance SUVs from Porsche, Bentley and Lamborghini.

Powered by a 697bhp 4.0-litre V8 engine linked to a new 9 speed wet clutch gearbox, the DBX707 crossover accelerates from 0 to 62mph in just 3.3 seconds, that's just ahead of the 3.4 seconds it takes the Aston Martin DBS Supperlegra. It can even accelerate to 100mph in just 7.4 seconds when using a “Race Start” feature and up to a top speed of 193mph. In addition to superior pace, the 707 promises even greater dynamic appeal than the standard DBX, courtesy of uprated air suspension, a retuned power steering system, a strengthened limited-slip differential and carbon-ceramic brake discs. The chassis upgrades promise flatter cornering of vertical movement over bumps and reduced pitching and squatting under braking and acceleration.

"With this exceptional new model we have truly unlocked the performance potential within the DBX to create a world beating high-performance SUV." - Ralph Illenberger, Head of Powertrain.

Bespoke styling makes the 707 stand out from the standard DBX. A larger grille is the most obvious differentiator. There are redesigned light clusters, air intakes and bumpers, black trim detailing, a new spoiler and larger quad exhausts. The overtly sporting theme continues inside, where Sports Plus seats are equipped as standard and the switchgear is finished in dark chrome. Combining beauty, luxury, and a flat ton of power, the DBX707 truly is the pinnacle of SUVs.

The 707 will be available from £189,000, around £30,000 more expensive than the standard DBX. Aston Martin stated in a press release that it plans on beginning deliveries for the SUV in early Q2 of 2022.

The question is... Will you be placing an order?
