The new Aston Martin DBX 707, powered by a bullish 4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine from no less than 707 hp of maximum power and 900 Nm of torque. Numbers transferred to the ground via a nine-speed automatic gearbox connected to the four-wheel drive. The canon zero-hundred? Crumbled in 3.3 seconds.
To keep so much exuberance at bay there is a braking system with huge carbon-ceramic discs (which save 40.5 kilos of weight compared to conventional ones), bitten by six-piston calipers, hidden in turn by 22 ”rims. The electronically controlled self-locking rear differential, the suspension – with revised suspension – and the electronic power steering have been revised and adapted to the vehicle’s performance.
To distinguish the DBX 707 from the more peaceful editions of the English DBX SUV, there are aesthetic details such as the front grille, extra-large format, the new daytime running lights, the air intakes in the lower portion of the front apron and a new splitter. At the rear there is a brand new wing, which helps to increase the stability of the vehicle at high speeds, in synergy with a dedicated rear diffuser.
Inside, the sports seats with leather or Alcantara upholstery – alternatively there are the “Comfort” ones, optional at no extra cost -, which are combined with dark chrome finishes (optional bright chrome or carbon fiber). The list of customizations is very long. The car will be produced starting from the first quarter of this year: first deliveries scheduled for April at a price yet to be defined but, presumably, in the order of a quarter of a million euros.
