The DBX 707 sits right up there among the most powerful production SUVs in the world
Aston Martin Kuala Lumpur today officially welcomed the Aston Martin DBX 707 flagship SUV at its outlet in Kuala Lumpur.
Essentially a more bad ass version of the DBX, the DBX 707 is priced from RM1,098,000 in Malaysia before taxes, duties, options and customisation.
Powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing 707 PS and 900 Nm, the DBX 707 is capable of sprinting from naught to 100 km/h in just 3.3 seconds and achieve a top speed of 310 km/h.
Tasked with managing all that power is a 9-speed automatic transmission which is fitted for the first time in the DBX. The wet clutch transmission is linked to an electronic limited slip rear differential (e-diff) that has been strengthened to handle the full 900 Nm of torque.
To manage this immense straight-line performance, carbon ceramic brakes (CCB) have been made standard in the DBX707. Measuring 420 mm in front and 390 mm in the rear, the CCB rotors are gripped by 6-piston calipers and contribute to an overall reduction of 40.5kg in unsprung weight.
To underline the driver-focused credentials of the DBX 707, the GT Sport and Sport+ driving modes now feature “Race Start” to give drivers the full experience of the vehicle’s unrivalled off-the-line acceleration.
Although torque can be distributed 100% to the rear axle on demand, revised active logic in the all-wheel drive transfer case enhances control between the driveline and ESP system for a more natural, sports car-like driving experience in the DBX707.
Design wise, Aston Martin designers have reinvented the front end of the DBX707 with a larger front grille defined by six double-vaned horizontal bars and newly-designed daytime-running lights (DRL).
Combined with the new air intakes, brake cooling ducts and new front splitter profile, the modifications help improve cooling airflow to maintain optimum performance while creating a unique, visual identity for the range-topping Aston Martin SUV.
Similarly, the rear end of the DBX707 features a new lip spoiler which is added to the roof wing to reduce lift and increase high-speed stability while the twin rear diffuser now rises to meet the new, large-diameter quad-exhaust system.
Finished in satin black to complement the gloss black treatment of the diffuser, this new exhaust has been tuned to deliver a unique sound signature that creates greater emotional engagement on the move.
Inside the cabin, the DBX 707 is comes with Sport seats, dark chrome switchgear, three choices of interior colours namely Accelerate, Inspire – Comfort, and Inspire – Sport.
All seat options come with 16-way electric adjustment plus heating as standard while Piano Black veneer is draped across the cabin as standard. Carbon fibre and bronze metal mesh finishes are also available as an option.
In addition to the wide range of options to choose from, 'Q by Aston Martin' offers bespoke personalisation services limited only by the imagination.
This allows clients to push their creative boundaries and truly express themselves with a DBX707 that is uniquely theirs.
That being said, the Aston Martin DBX707 is now available for viewing and booking in Malaysia. Like every other model officially sold by Aston Martin Kuala Lumpur, the DBX707 is offered with an optional extended warranty of up to 20 years of coverage.
This complements the Aston Martin ownership experience with vehicle lifetime protection for total peace of mind, which is subject to terms and conditions of course.
