The first Aston Martin DBX707, the world’s most powerful luxury SUV, has been produced and driven off the assembly line at St Athan, Wales.
The first customer car was inspected by the Secretary of State for Wales, Simon Hart MP and Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Wales, David Davies MP.
The hand-built British ultra-luxury SUV is manufactured in St Athan, Wales, according to Newspress.
In terms of power, the 707 in the name of the DBX is a clue as to how much power it has from its 4,0-litre Biturbo engine sourced from Mercedes-Benz's performance arm AMG. The DBX 707 has 520kW and 900N.m and can accelerate to 100km/h from zero in 3,3 seconds. Power is sent to all four wheels via a nine-speed automatic gearbox and the top speed is 311km/h.
