Aston Martin Lands The DBX707 In India

Unsurprisingly, it is the most expensive model in the British brand’s portfolio.

The Aston Martin DBX707 first broke cover in February this year. And now, it has landed on Indian shores sporting a price tag of INR 4.63 crore. That figure makes it the most expensive offering from the British brand in India. And compared to the standard DBX, the DBX707 costs close to INR 50 lakh more, which is a humungous amount.

The reason why the new variant digs a deeper hole in the pocket is down to the performance it offers. Powering the Aston Martin DBX707 is a Mercedes-Benz-sourced 4.0-litre, twin-turbo V8 that has been spruced up to produce 707hp and 900Nm of peak torque. Over the DBX (V8), the DBX707 has 157hp/200Nm more on tap. In the mix is a 9-speed automatic transmission, which also comes from Stuttgart’s three-pointed star, while the oomph goes to all four wheels. As a result, the range-topping derivative can complete the 0-100kmph sprint in 3.3 seconds and hit 311kmph at full stretch.

Now, obviously, having a punchier powertrain is one thing. Taming it is something different. And for that, Aston Martin has affixed carbon ceramic brakes as standard on the DBX707. Those brakes can take serious punishment and, as an added advantage, reduce the unsprung weight of the vehicle by nearly 41kg. Also in the package is a revised electronic limited-slip rear differential, which handles the mammoth oomph efficiently. If need be, all the torque can be routed to the rear wheels. The DBX707 also features a recalibrated suspension and a more direct steering wheel, both raising the dynamism of the SUV. And, of course, compared the to standard DBX, the DBX707 has a tweaked design, which aids aerodynamics, and larger wheels (21-inch as standard; 22- and 23-inch options available) for more grip.

In terms of features, the Aston Martin DBX707 comes with multiple drive modes, powered and heated sports seats (front and rear), dark chrome treatment indoors (bright chrome and carbon fibre are options) and soft-close doors. The rest of the package remains more-or-less the same as the standard SUV.

The Aston Martin DBX707 is a rival for the Lamborghini Urus and the Bentley Bentayga. One could even consider the Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT and the Audi RS Q8 as competitors. The list of SUVs which offer over 600bhp also includes the BMW X5M and the Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupe.
