The fastest, most powerful and ‘best handling’ Aston Martin DBX ever built. Aston Martin calls it the DBX707
but you can call it whatever you like because it’s got nearly seven hundred horsepower and will outrun pretty much any 4x4 on the road.
Unsurprisingly, the ‘707’ bit refers to PS, which equates to 697bhp from the uprated 4.0-litre, AMG-sourced biturbo V8 lurking under the bonnet. It also pumps out 663lb ft of torque, which is a smidge more than yer average volcano makes.
Acceleration and overall performance is suitably explosive. Aston reckons this new DBX will sprint from 0-62mph in 3.3s – quicker than a Lamborghini Urus and on par with a Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT – and top out at 193mph. As anybody with even the most rudimentary grasp of fear will confirm, 193mph in a 2.2-tonne SUV is ‘enough’.
How, exactly, has Aston massaged out 155bhp more than a ‘regular’ V8 DBX? New ball-bearing turbos and a new engine map, basically. The V8 also gets a nine-speed ‘wet-clutch’ automatic gearbox better equipped to deal with that additional torque. Aston promises faster gearshifts compared to the old torque converter ‘box, and of course, better launches off the line.
