New Aston Martin DBX707 is ‘world’s most powerful luxury SUV’

If James Bond ever settles down, gets married, has kids, rescues a cockapoo, and needs to pack for a bank holiday weekend camping in Cornwall, this is precisely the type of Aston Martin he’d have in the garage - the brand new DBX707.

The DBX707 is, according to the firm, the ‘world’s most powerful luxury SUV’, and a rival to the likes of the Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT and the Lamborghini Urus.

And with power of 707PS coupled with 900 Nm of torque - thanks to a whacking great 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 - it’s certainly got the oomph to give a 007 baddie a run for his or her money.

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 which 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.”

So, to give you some context, this is the most performance-oriented version of the regular DBX SUV- first revealed way back in 2019 - that we’ve ever seen.

Aston Martin has always described the DBX as an ‘suv with the soul of a sports car’. And the DBX707 really takes that up a few notches.

The British firm says that the SUV is so taut and precise, it’s a ‘sabre in a segment of sledgehammers’.

Key to this improved handling is the DBX707’s air suspension system. The DBX707 features a ‘dedicated chassis tune optimised to its uncompromising demands and objectives’, says Aston Martin.

There's new damper valving and a recalibration of dynamic spring volume switching to improve body control and steering response. The electronic power steering system has also been adjusted to improve steering feel, with greater effort build-up off centre to ‘help the driver build a clearer picture of increasing cornering loads and available grip’.

And there’s also a tighter management of what’s called ‘heave’ - the vertical movement over bumps and crests or in compressions - as well as ‘pitch’ - when the car dives under braking or squats under acceleration - as well as body roll.

Other performance upgrades above and beyond the standard DBX is a wet clutch transmission for faster gear changes, carbon ceramic brakes, 22 inch alloys, and a new version of the electronic limited slip rear differential, which means you’re better able to transfer power to the road.

An Aston Martin spokesperson adds: 

“Torque distribution front-to-rear remains fully automatic, with the ability to send up to 100% of the torque to the rear axle on demand. Careful calibration of the e-diff ensures the DBX707 has the cornering agility, sporting feel and dynamic character of a true sports car. One that integrates chassis and powertrain technology to find the sweetest handling balance and seek to maintain the optimum combination of traction and agility at all times.”

Speaking of power, Aston Martin says it has now unlocked the ‘full potential’ of the DBX’s 4.0-litre V8, which has power of around 550 PS in the standard car.

With uprated launch capability, the DBX707’s 0-62mph time is just 3.3 seconds - a big improvement on the standard DBX 4.5 second sprint.

Styling wise, the DBX707 gets a sporty makeover, including a larger front grille, redesigned daytime running lights, new airtakes and brake cooling ducts, as well as a new front splitter and aerodynamic rear spoiler.

There are also dark satin chrome window surrounds and new bonnet blades, coupled with gloss black side sills, which now feature a deeper and more heavily sculpted profile to give the DBX707 a ground-hugging stance. Lease customers will also get soft-close doors.

And at the back, a twin rear diffuser is needed to accommodate the enlarged new quad exhaust system.

Step inside the cabin - which can be personalised to your exacting tastes - and you can expect sport seats fitted as standard, heated seats front and rear, dark chrome finishes all round, and Piano Black veneer is standard with carbon fibre or bronze metal mesh veneer finishes available as an option.

Production will now begin in earnest with first deliveries set for Quarter Two of 2022.

Recently took delivery of a brand new BMW which was ordered through Select Car Leasing and from start to finish I couldn’t have been more satisfied with the service I received. Andy regularly kept me informed with updates on the built process of my car and always provided me with answers to any of my questions. Entire process was slick and efficient, and would definitely order through them again. Fantastic!
