2023 Aston Martin DBX707
Owner: Aston Martin Hosted by: Hackett
The DBX707 takes Aston Martin to the forefront of luxury performance SUVs with immense thrust – as befits the name, it produces a riotous 707PS from its 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8. This is enough to propel the DBX707 to a maximum speed of 193mph, although the 800Nm in-gear muscle is equally weighty in the finest traditions of the marque.
However, there’s much more to the DBX707 than simply straight-line performance – every element of the car’s chassis has been honed and developed to make the model handle as adeptly as it accelerates.
Aston Martin has recalibrated the dampers, fitted wider tracks fore and aft, and reprogrammed the stability programme for what the model’s engineers describe as an ever-greater freedom of expression. The final drive has been shortened, too, to provide greater in-gear punch.
The DBX707 has also been treated to an aesthetic makeover, with a wider front grille, new daytime running lights, larger brake cooling ducts and a menacing front splitter, plus there’s a new double-deck diffuser at the rear.
Power: 697bhp Top speed: 193mph 0-60mph: 3.1 seconds
