    Under the bonnet of the new SUV is a four-liter twin-turbo V8 engine mated to a nine-speed wet-clutch automatic transmission. The turbocharged power plant now features ball-bearing turbochargers and a bespoke engine calibration to unleash more power and torque.

    This powertrain setup puts out 697 tea-sipping horses and 900Nm of almost instantaneous torque.

    “With this exceptional new model, we have truly unlocked the performance potential within the DBX to create a world-beating high-performance SUV. The huge gains we have found in both power and torque demonstrate not only the inherent prowess of the 4.0-liter bi-turbo V8, but Aston Martin’s appetite and ability for finding uncompromising engineering solutions. The combination of this magnificent engine with a new 9-speed ‘wet-clutch’ transmission sits at the heart of DBX707’s formidable capabilities and unforgettable character,” explained Aston Martin Head of Powertrain Ralph Illenberger.

    Stopping power will come from a set of carbon-ceramic brakes that measure 420mm at the front and 390mm at the rear. The grippy brakes are fitted with a six-piston caliper and feature a specialized design that improves cooling and friction consistency.

    These carbon-ceramic brakes blend well with the aesthetic appeal of the DBX707’s 22-inch wheels. Aston Martin said that it will offer optional 23-inch alloy wheels in textured black or satin black with diamond-turned highlights.

    The Aston Martin DBX707 is also equipped with an electronic limited-slip rear differential, an air suspension system, a dedicated chassis, new damper valving, a recalibrated dynamic spring volume switching, and electronic power steering, which improves handling at high-speed driving situations.

    “Creating the ultimate SUV presented formidable challenges for our engineering team. Too often this class of car is characterized by an obsession with brute force. With DBX707 our objective was to match immense performance with impeccable control and precision, combined with an authentic sporting character essential in every Aston Martin model. To this end, we applied an uncompromising approach to every area of the vehicle. Engine, transmission, suspension, brakes, electronic systems, and aerodynamics have all been subject to extensive enhancement and meticulous tuning. The result is a car which sets new standards and further distinguishes the DBX from its class rivals,” explained Aston Martin Vehicle Engineering and Procurement Head Drummond Jacoy.

    The Aston Martin DBX707 also boasts purposeful design elements like its larger front grille with new air intakes and brake cooling ducts, plus a new front splitter profile. Its rear-end features a new lip spoiler with a significantly enlarged twin rear diffuser, a new rear bumper complete with integrated quarter panel vents, and a new large diameter quad exhaust system.

    Inside, the DBX707 SUV comes with Sport seats with Comfort seats made available as a no-cost option. Customers can choose between the Accelerate and Inspire interior trims but can also have the cabin of their SUVs personalized through the carmaker’s bespoke division — Q by Aston Martin.

    “The key to DBX707’s design DNA is capturing the confidence that comes from its dynamic supremacy. When you are the alpha SUV you don’t have to try too hard, therefore, we concentrated on those areas of the design that would make the DBX707 instantly recognizable as the highest performing model. Naturally, function is the driver for some of the changes — most notably the larger grille aperture, rear spoiler, and optional 23in wheels — but elsewhere — such as the side sills and rear bumper — we expressed the DBX707’s immense performance in ways that create a more aggressive stance and greater muscularity. The result is a design that exudes potency while retaining our commitment to pure lines and perfect proportions. DBX707 is a true performance beast, yet retains the beauty and elegance you expect from Aston Martin’s DNA,” said Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman.

    DBX707 production is due to commence in the first quarter of 2022, with deliveries scheduled to begin during the early second quarter of the year.
