Aston Martin has completed the very first production model of the DBX707, touted to be the world’s most powerful luxury SUV.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Where is the DBX707 built?

    Each DBX707 is hand-built at Aston Martin's factory in Wales.
  • Who were the government officials that were present dutring the inspection of the first DBX707?

    Present were the Secretary of State for Wales Simon Hart MP and Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Wales David Davies MP.
  • The first DBX707 to have rolled out of the assembly line was inspected by the Secretary of State for Wales Simon Hart MP and Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Wales, David Davies MP.

    “It’s great to see the iconic Aston Martin brand roll off the production line in here in Wales, before being exported to countries around the world. The success of the DBX707 is testament to the highly skilled and hard-working team, and it’s fascinating to see how they work. I want Wales to be a highly attractive location for cutting-edge automotive technologies and the UK Government will continue to work to secure and support the investment of companies, like Aston Martin, as they drive economic growth and create jobs,” said Simon Hart.

    Like the first DBX707, each of the luxury SUVs has been proudly hand-built at Aston Martin’s factory in Wales and ensures its would-be owners that the vehicles they have purchased have been put together by the marque’s top technicians — of which the Gaydon-based company recruited more than a hundred of, to help build the DBX707.

    “Aston Martin is immensely proud to be manufacturing industry-leading products like DBX707 from a world-class facility in Wales, and we are delighted to see the very first model completed. As the first car delivered through the product development cycle under the leadership of Lawrence Stroll, Executive Chairman of Aston Martin Lagonda, DBX707 is a symbol of the new era for Aston Martin and the brand’s ability to combine ultra-luxury and high-performance,” said Aston Martin Lagonda Chief Operating Officer Michael Straughan.

    “The initial reaction from customers and media has been tremendous, and as we ramp-up DBX707 production at St Athan, it is fantastic that we have also had the opportunity to grow our team and create more employment opportunities for people from the local community. Wales has a rich tradition of industrial and engineering excellence and we’re excited to be forging the future and to support that proud heritage,” he added.

    The benchmark-setting model is set to be shipped to more than 50 countries around the world over the coming months.
