Aston Martin DBX has been in production since 2020 however it has struggled to stand out among the competition. Despite being aesthetically pleasing it only has 550 metric horsepower making it less powerful than other luxury SUVs like Porsche Cayenne Turbo S, Rolls-Royce Cullinan, Mercedes-AMG G63, Maserati Levante Trofeo, Audi RS Q8, Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S, BMW X5M and X6M, Bentley Bentayga as well Lamborghini Urus.
What makes thing worse is that it’s not that fast. Sure, 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds is pretty quick but not when compared to most of the SUVs mentioned above.
Finally Aston Martin has decided to address this issue by revealing Aston Martin DBX 707 – the most powerful luxury SUV in the world.
Aston Martin DBX 707 is equipped with Mercedes-AMG-derived twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine that outputs 707 metric horsepower (520 kw) and 900 Nm (664 lb.-ft.) of torque.
That doesn’t however make it the most powerful SUV in the world. Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat outputs 720 metric horsepower and there are even more powerful SUVs with electric powertrains like GMC Hummer EV SUV (1014 metric horsepower) and Tesla Model X Plaid (1034 metric horsepower). With that being said they are nowhere near as luxurious as the Aston hence the DBD 707 title of being the most powerful luxury SUV.
How does this increase in power affect he performance? Quite significantly. 0 to 100 km/h acceleration is dropped by 1 seconds: from 4.3 seconds to 3.3 seconds making it just as fast as supercars.
The rest of the car is also improved to accommodate the power increase including upgraded air suspension, improved chassis, retuned power steering system, strengthened limited-slip differential and carbon-ceramic brake discs that decreases unsprung weight by 40.5 kilograms. Not only DBX 707 will outaccelerate the regular DBX but also outhandle and outbrake it.
The new Aston Martin DBX 707 also features some aesthetic changes including larger grille with double-vane mesh pattern, redesigned light clusters, air intakes, bumpers, larger quad exhausts and other changes.
