The DBX707 is a high-performance SUV from Aston Martin that blends blazing performance, supreme dynamics, unmistakable flair, and perfect luxury.
The brutally powerful and quickest SUV of its class is equipped with a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 belting out an immense 707PS and 900Nm, increases of 157PS and 200Nm over the DBX (V8) (V8). The twin-turbo V8 includes ball bearing turbochargers and a bespoke engine tune to provide additional power and torque. Aston Martin’s flagship high performance SUV boasts a 9-speed ‘wet clutch’ automatic transmission capable of managing higher torque.
Wet clutch transmission helps in faster gear changes and boost the 0-100Kmph drag in 3.3 seconds. Aston Martin’s Head of Powertrain, Ralph Illenberger said: “With this exceptional new model we have truly unlocked the performance potential within the DBX to create a world beating high-performance SUV. The huge gains we have found in both power and torque demonstrates not only the inherent prowess of the 4.0-litre biturbo V8, but Aston Martin’s appetite and ability for finding uncompromising engineering solutions. The combination of this magnificent engine with a new 9-speed ‘wet-clutch’ transmission sits at the heart of DBX707’s formidable capabilities and unforgettable character.”
DBX707 is equipped with Carbon Ceramic Brakes (CCB) (CCB). 420mm front and 390mm rear CCB discs are gripped by 6-piston calipers further assist in saving 40.5 Kgs of weight. 22” wheels and tires are standard with optional 23” alloy wheel supplied in a choice of textured black or satin black with diamond shaped highlights.
The ultimate drive ratio of the DBX707’s electronic limited slip rear differential is 3.27, compared to 3.07 for the DBX V8, which aids sprinting ability through lower gears and improves in-gear performance. The DBX707 features an excellent air suspension system that keeps the DBX V8’s core construction and triple volume air chambers. To improve body control and steering response, the DBX707 has updated damper valving and recalibration of dynamic spring volume switching. The electronic power steering system has also been tweaked to increase steering feel, with more effort build-up off center to aid the driver in visualizing rising cornering loads and available grip. The car’s agility and dynamic balance are improved by the Electronic Active Roll Control system.
The DBX707 has a variety of drive modes. To maximize off-the-line performance, Race Start is available in GT Sport and Sport+ modes. Features a redesigned lower control with specific controls for suspension mode, ESP, manual gear selection mode, and active exhaust switch, which activates the valves of the new quad tailpipe sports exhaust system without having to be in Sport drive mode.
The DBX receives a wider front grille and an all-new DRL design, which includes new air intakes and brake cooling ducts, as well as a new front splitter profile. The satin chrome grille features double vanes, with the six horizontal bars now split to create more visual interest and make this range-topping model instantly identifiable. The grille has been enlarged to significantly increase cooling airflow to both the ultra-high performance V8 and new 9-speed transmission.
The dark satin chrome window surrounds and new louvred bonnet blades match the front grille and gloss black splitter perfectly, and the gloss black side sills, which now have a deeper and more heavily sculpted profile to give the DBX707 a ground-hugging stance, continue along the flanks with gloss black side sills, which now feature a deeper and more heavily sculpted profile to give the DBX707 a ground-hugging Soft-close doors have also been added to the DBX707, further improving the SUV’s luxury credentials.
A new lip spoiler has been added to the roof wing to reduce lift and boost high-speed stability, and the dual rear diffuser has been greatly increased to suit the new large diameter quad exhaust system. This new exhaust has been adjusted to deliver a unique sound signature and is finished in satin black to complement the gloss black treatment of the diffuser. A redesigned rear bumper with integrated quarter panel vents completes the rear-end revisions, emphasizing the DBX707’s powerful body.
Sport seats come with 16-way motorized adjustment and front and rear heating as standard. The standard Accelerate interior includes a mix of leather and Alcantara, while the optional Inspire – Comfort and Inspire Sport interiors include full Semi-Aniline leather with embroidered Aston Martin wings on the headrest, a contrast stripe down the centre of the seat, and a perforation pattern in the seat back and base cushion.
Production of the DBX707 is expected to begin in Q1 2022, with first deliveries expected in early Q2 2022.
