After several official teasers appeared, the latest Aston Martin DBX line up, dubbed the DBX707 and claimed to be the most powerful SUV in the world, has been officially introduced.
The performance of the Aston Martin DBX707 comes from a 4,000 cc twin-turbo V8 engine capable of producing 697 hp and 900 Nm of torque. On paper, the engine is the most powerful compared to the Lamborghini Urus 641 hp and Bentley Bentayga Speed 626 hp.
This engine is mated to a 9-speed wet clutch transmission that replaces the DBX torque converter for faster gear changes. Thus, in combination with a tweaked all-wheel drive system and an improved limited-slip differential, this Aston Martin DBX707 can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.2 seconds with a maximum speed of 310 km/h.
For better driving dynamics, the Aston Martin DBX707 received a series of chassis adjustments over the standard DBX. This includes a new setup for an adaptive three-chamber air suspension with new damper valves and recalibrated springs, steering and electronic systems.
Braking has also been improved thanks to standard carbon-ceramic discs measuring 420 mm at the front and 390 mm at the rear with six-piston brake calipers.
Moving on to the exterior, the Aston Martin DBX707 looks more aggressive from every angle, communicating its enhanced performance credentials. Up front, changes include a larger grille flanked by new intakes and DRLs, plus a more prominent splitter.
Entering the cabin, there are new soft-close doors and a redesigned bottom center console. In addition, there is also a selection of new driving modes, including dedicated buttons for suspension mode, ESP, manual gear selection mode, and an active exhaust switch, allowing the driver to quickly select his preferences without going through the touchscreen menus like on the DBX.
