This is the Aston Martin DBX 707 – an updated version of the British luxury manufacturer’s SUV. An increase in performance makes it the most powerful SUV on the market. The chassis has been optimized to compete with the Mercedes-AMG GLS 63, Bentley Bentayga Speed , and Lamborghini Urus.
The Aston Martin DBX 707 looks more aggressive than the stock vehicle thanks to some new changes. Taking center stage is a redesigned grille that’s said to be the largest ever fitted to an Aston Martin and now features double-stacked louvers. There is also a lower and longer front splitter.
You might also have noticed that the rimmed daytime running lights have been replaced with flat units. The lower side skirts are fitted around the windows, as are the satin chrome strips. 22-inch alloy wheels come as standard and can be swapped out for 23-inch versions. In the back, there is a new spoiler and a larger rear diffuser, as well as a four-outlet exhaust system that is not fake. A huge improvement over the stock vehicle’s over-the-top pair.
Engines and chassis changes
Despite carrying over the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 from the regular DBX, the 707 gets a power jump to a (shocking) 707 hp. That’s an increase of 157 hp, along with an increase in torque from 800 Nm to 900 Nm. Power is still sent to all four wheels, but a nine-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission has been fitted instead of a torque converter unit. This allows for faster gear changes and a new launch control mode.
The chassis has been revised to provide a smoother ride, although no lower than that of the regular DBX, and a new electronic limited-slip differential has been fitted to the rear axle. This transfers 100% of the vehicle’s power to the rear axle. Carbon-ceramic brakes are now also standard equipment, with improvements to the system resulting in a total unsprung weight reduction of 40.5kg. This leads to better handling.
Aston Martin DBX 707 interior
The changes in the interior of the Aston Martin DBX 707 are also quite extensive. There’s a new center console and new buttons for the chassis and transmission modes. There’s also now an active exhaust button so you can hear the full grunt of the V8. Oh, and soft-closing doors so you and your passengers don’t accidentally slam them shut. The sport seats are now standard, but the comfort seats are a no-cost option, with 16-way power adjustment at no extra cost. The interior is lined with leather and Alcantara as standard.
Aston Martin DBX 707 Price
Deliveries of the Aston Martin DBX 707 will begin in mid-2022, and Aston Martin has not yet announced any prices. However, it is expected to cost a fair bit more than the standard car, which costs around €184,000.
