Meaner looks, more wizardry and more punch, not a bad recipe for Aston Martin to claim it as the world’s most powerful SUV

 

  • The power gains plus a new 9-speed wet clutch automatic gearbox are enough to give the SUV a 3.3 second 0-100kmph sprint and a 319kmph top speed.

  • Other performance highlights include a reworked air suspension, new electronic diff, recalibrated chassis, better brakes, and a new “Race Start” mode.

  • Bigger front grille, prominent air intakes, a front splitter, 23-inch alloy wheels, quad exhausts and a chunky rear diffuser make up the design changes.

  • Cabin receives sports seats and a revised lower centre console featuring manual controls for drive and exhaust modes.

Aston Martin’s first ever SUV, the DBX was no slouch at all in the performance department. But, the carmaker decided to step things up a notch with the SUV, and in comes the DBX707. Such was the work done to make the DBX mean that you’d term it as a ‘super SUV’ in simple terms.

The biggest upgrade is under the hood despite the DBX707 sticking with the 4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine. That being said, it's been uprated to produce a beefy 707PS and 900Nm, a whopping 157PS and 200Nm increase over the standard DBX V8. 

Credit for these gains go to the engine now featuring ball bearing turbochargers, as well as new 9-speed wet clutch automatic gearbox to handle that extra torque. This is enough to propel the DBX707 from a standstill to 100kmph in just 3.3 seconds, a full 1.2 seconds quicker than the standard model. Top speed is rated at 319kmph.

Aside from power gains, the carmaker has also worked on the technical wizardry going on in other areas starting with a new electronic limited slip rear differential that’s been calibrated with a shorter final drive ratio to aid its sprinting prowess, with a recalibrated chassis to give sportscar-like cornering agility. While air suspension has been retained, it's got new damper valving and a recalibrated dynamic spring volume switching. 

Other tweaks have been made to the electronic power steering for better feel, and eARC (Electronic Active Roll Control) system to lessen body roll. Those who want to be racy off the line, now get a new “Race Start” mode, available in GT Sport and Sport+ modes that prioritises off-the-line acceleration. Stopping power is achieved by carbon ceramic brakes as standard with some tweaks to the hydraulic sizing and booster tune.

A super SUV needs to look the part too, and the Aston Martin DBX707 certainly does just that. We’ve got the largest front grille in an Aston Martin model, a muscular front bumper, a sporty front splitter, large air intakes making up most of the fascia, and a new LED DRL design. Head over to the sides, and you get new 23-inch wheels and sporty side skirts. At the rear, we’ve got a mean bunch of quad exhausts, with a chunky diffuser down below making up for an aggressive rear end.

 

The sporty quotient continues inside, with sports seats, and a revised lower centre console that gives more focus to the driver thanks to manual controls for the drive and exhaust modes. 

Production for the Aston Martin DBX707 kicks off in the first quarter of 2022 with deliveries commencing in the early Q2 2022. We already have the DBX in India, but might need to wait until the end of this year to get its more hardcore sibling. Nonetheless, the DBX707 should prove itself to be a good match against other super SUVs like the Lamborghini Urus and the Audi RS Q8.
