We have been hearing about Aston Martin’s first SUV, the Aston Martin DBX for the last few years and now it is finally official.
The new Aston Martin SUV is the first ever SUV from the luxury car maker and it looks impressive from the photos and the video.
The car is powered by a 4.0 litre twin turbo V8 that produces 542 horsepower and it comes with a 0 to 62 miles per hour time of just 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 181 miles per hour.
Set to be built in Aston Martin’s purpose-built manufacturing facility in St Athan, Wales, the foundation of DBX is a new dedicated SUV platform, something rarely seen across the sector. More than ever before, this clean sheet of paper has allowed all departments within Aston Martin to innovate and push the boundaries of what British design and engineering can create, resulting in a truly remarkable product.
Utilising bonded aluminium, a construction method Aston Martin has refined through the development of its sports cars, the body structure is both very light and incredibly stiff, assisting in the delivery of an overall kerbweight of 2,245kg. Right from its genesis, it was designed to allow maximum room in the cabin, putting a premium on refinement and class leading spaciousness for both front and rear occupants. Meanwhile, the exceptional stiffness inherent in the design of the new platform has also enabled DBX to achieve exceptional dynamics both on and off-road.
Pricing for the new Aston Martin DBX start at £158,000 in the UK, €193,500 in Germany and $189,900 in USA, you can find out more information over at Aston Martin at the link below.
