There is no mistaking that our time on this planet should be joy at every turn. They say the lucky get all the perks of life but that’s also so true for the people that make out-of-the-box thinking a major part of their day-to-day.
Aston Martin has always been an enviable brand. From driving the DBS to our time in the DBX we understood the near-mystical allure of an Aston. With this DBX707, Aston Martin now tops the super SUV segment with a unique combination of blistering performance, supreme dynamics, unmistakable style, and absolute luxury. Engineered with an abundance of character and compelling capability DBX707 is the new ultimate SUV.
Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer, Tobias Moers, said of the DBX707: “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. With the DBX707 we have pushed the boundaries in every area to create a car that 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”
Photographer David Lewis Taylor captured the fabulous new features of the DBX707 that include a larger front grille and an all-new design of DRL complete with new air intakes and brake cooling ducts and a new front splitter profile, all that sets the 707 apart from the standard DBX. The satin chrome grille – enlarged to significantly increase cooling airflow to both the ultra-high performance V8 and new 9-speed transmission – features double vanes, and the six horizontal bars now split to create more visual interest and make this range-topping model immediately identifiable.
The rear of the DBX707 is just damn dramatic. From the new lip spoiler to the roof wing to reduce lift and increase high-speed stability, with a significantly enlarged twin rear diffuser rising to meet the new large-diameter quad exhaust system.
Inside the British design theme continues with Sports seats fitted as standard and all seat options come with 16-way electric adjustment plus heating in front and rear as standard. There are three choices of interior environments – standard-fit Accelerate, which features a mix of leather and Alcantara®, as well as the optional Inspire – Comfort and Inspire Sport, which features full Semi-Aniline leather complete with embroidered Aston Martin wings on the headrest, a contrast stripe down the center of the seat and perforation pattern in the seat back and base cushion.
That Aston Martin exhaust note is fantastic thanks to DBX’s 4.0-liter 707hp twin-turbocharged V8 that now features ball-bearing turbochargers and a bespoke engine calibration to liberate more power and torque. Also, new to Aston Martin’s flagship high-performance SUV is a 9-speed ‘wet clutch’ automatic transmission. Launch capability is also improved over a standard DBX which gives a DBX707’s 0-62mph time of 3.3 seconds, all for a compelling drive on the road or the track.
