Aston Martin recently unveiled the 2022 Aston Martin DBX707, a luxury SUV that the automakers claim to be the fastest SUV to date, with a top speed of 310kmph.
“Right from its first introduction, the DBX has represented Aston Martin’s dynamic and design values in a way that proves not all SUVs have to conform to the same compromises,” says Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer, Tobias Moers. He further adds, “With the DBX707, we have pushed the boundaries in every area to create a car which sets new standards of performance and desirability. The fastest, most powerful, best handling and most engaging car of its kind, it propels Aston Martin to the pinnacle of SUV performance”.

Realising the full potential of the DBX’s 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8, the DBX707’s engine now features ball-bearing turbochargers along with a revised calibration delivering more power and torque.
Specifications
As the name of the car suggests, the engine now gets an immense 707hp (metric horsepower) and 900Nm of peak torque. This is an impressive 157hp increase from the previous DBX models. The added power along with the new flagship 9-speed ‘wet clutch’ automatic transmission, allows the vehicle to speed from 0-62mph in just 3.3 seconds.

Standard carbon-ceramic brakes are fitted with massive 16.5-inch rotors at the front and 15.4-inch discs at the rear. Additional updates include a weight reduction of 40.5kgs in unsprung mass. Revisions to the braking system’s hydraulics have also been made for an improved pedal feel and more efficient cooling.
Aside from the impressive engine changes, the DBX707 get a number of tweaks in terms of design.

A larger front grille with double-stacked slats and a double-vane mesh pattern takes the centre stage. There are significant changes to the rear end of the car as well. A new rear bumper complete with integrated quarter panel vents gives the car a muscular, sporty look. Redesigned light clusters, new air intakes and brake cooling ducts add a seemingly new look to the DBX707.

The interior of the new vehicle repeats the sporty theme with standard heated Sport seats with 16-electric adjustments in the front as well as rear seats.

The interiors come in three choices, a standard-fit Accelerate, Inspire Comfort and Inspire Sport. The first is a mix of leather and Alcantara®. The latter two optional variants feature full Semi-Aniline leather complete 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.
A revised lower centre console provides the driver with easier access to the car’s ‘enhanced’ drive mode functions and settings, proving them with “immediate fingertip control of key dynamic modes”.

A dark chrome finish with a Piano Black veneer remains a standard pick for the interiors. However, customers can opt for a bright chrome finish with carbon fibre or bronze metal mesh veneer finishes as well.
