Aston Martin did not deceive expectations and has presented a properly pumped up crossover DBX with the prefix «707» to the name, indicating the power of the V8 engine in horsepower. Aston Martin DBX707 will appear at dealers in spring.

The top version of the Aston Martin DBX crossover announced in January turned out to be more interesting than many expected.

Yes, the V12 engine, which orthodox supporters of Aston Martin dreamed of, the crossover has not received, but with donor Mercedes 4,0-liter «biturbo-eight» M177 Aston Martin motorists removed more than enough for DBX707 to be considered the most powerful luxury SUV in the world — 707 hp and 900 Nm.

For comparison, let’s say the Bentley Bentayga Speed has 635 hp under the hood, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT has 640 hp, the Lamborghini Urus has 650 hp and the Lister Stealth has 666 hp.

Even the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid with its 680 petrol-electric «horses» is left behind.

Only American Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat (720 hp) is more powerful among serial crossovers, but, firstly, it is not luxurious, and secondly, it will be soon removed from production.

Tuners (for example, Mansory and DMC) take more than 800 hp off the M177 motor, but for stock and 707 «horses» is an excellent indicator.

The output is increased by installing more efficient ball-bearing turbochargers and a new control program.

In the nine-speed automatic transmission (also supplied by Mercedes-Benz), the torque converter has been replaced by a wet clutch to increase response speed.

The main gear in the rear axle is made «shorter» (3.27 instead of 3.07).

As a result, acceleration time to 100 km/h was reduced from 4.5 to 3.3 seconds. Top speed increased from 291 to 310 km/h.

In terms of acceleration time to «hundred» Aston Martin DBX707 is equal to Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT which at the moment holds the title of Nürburgring king: the record time was shown last year — 7 min 38.925 s.

According to General Manager of Aston Martin Tobias Moers quoted by the British magazine Autocar, DBX707 may well beat this time, but it is necessary to pick up the right tires and the company is doing it now, so, probably, the new record is not far off.

The suspension for the record is all set. Triple air-cam airbags and steering system got new settings, the brakes are carbon ceramic with 6-piston calipers, 420 mm in front and 390 mm in rear.

Composite materials allowed to reduce the unsprung mass by 40.5 kg. The wheels are 22- or 23-inch.

The design of the front crossover is changed including for better brakes cooling, the radiator grille became larger, the shape of the front splitter was changed.

There are new, more developed sills along the sides. The stern has a larger spoiler at the top and a new double diffuser at the bottom, which is flanked by twin exhaust pipes.

The interior features of the DBX707 version are a new design of the center tunnel with round keys for direct access to the settings of the driving electronics (no need to climb into the menu anymore), sports seats in the base (comfortable — free option) and several types of unique decor.

In Tobias Moers’ opinion, the DBX707 version may account for up to 60% of crossover sales and then it will become not only the most expensive, but also the most popular, that is, it will quickly improve the financial health of Aston Martin, strongly undermined because of the COVID-19 pandemic and large expenses on development of new models.

In Great Britain, the Aston Martin DBX707 costs from 189,000 pounds sterling (19.7 million rubles at the current exchange rate).
