indian, launches & updates, aston martin, dbx, new car launches

The 0-100 km/h timing of the car is claimed to be 3.5 seconds with a top speed of 310.6 km/h, making it the fastest production SUV.

Aston Martin has launched the DBX707 SUV in India at a price tag of Rs 4.63 crore (ex-showroom). The DBX707 costs Rs 48 lakh more than the standard DBX, making it the costliest car in the company’s line-up in India.

The Aston Martin DBX707 uses the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine from the standard model but the engine has been reworked and now produces 700 BHP (707 PS) and 900 Nm. It is paired with a 9-speed automatic gearbox which sends power to all four wheels. The 0-100 km/h timing of the car is claimed to be 3.5 seconds with a top speed of 310.6 km/h, making it the fastest production SUV.

Inside, the Aston Martin DBX707 is similar to the standard SUV albeit with a few tweaks, including a new driving mode selector and sporty seats.

Apart from the performance updates, the British carmaker has also made a number of cosmetic & aero upgrades to the DBX. This includes a larger radiator grille, new air intakes, updated LED DRLs, 23-inch forged alloy wheels and large ceramic brakes for improved stopping power. The DBX707 also features a large diffuser at the rear with quad exhausts as well as an integrated roof spoiler.
