Aston Martin is all set to reveal the “world’s most powerful luxury SUV” in a few hours. I’m sure it’s been a long wait. So, here are the first images and some details of the Aston Martin DBX 707.
Contrary to earlier reports, the high-performance version of the DBX will not be called the DBX S. Instead, it will use the suffix ‘707’ indicating the power output of the engine. According to our sources, the SUV is powered by a new version of the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. It develops 700 hp and is mated to a 9-speed wet clutch automatic transmission and an all-wheel-drive system.
We have also learned that the DBX 707 is capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in just 3.1 seconds!
In terms of its design, the DBX 707 features a wider front grille with a redesigned lower section. It gets extended skirts on the sides and a more aggressive diffuser at the rear. The interior of the car is largely similar to the standard DBX.
On paper, the DBX 707 is definitely one mighty luxury SUV. However, its reign is likely to be short-lived. As you know, Maranello is also working on a powerful SUV. The Ferrari Purosangue is expected to debut later this year, featuring a naturally aspirated V12 with 800 hp.
While the Ferrari will be a pricey affair, prices for tahe Aston Martin DBX 707 are rumoured to start at €206,000.
