Be like James Bond, drive the latest Aston Martin for only 25 million baht (video)

Aston Martin is acknowledged as an iconic global brand synonymous with style, luxury, performance, exclusivity and James Bond, and if you have a few bob to spare then the latest model is yours for about 25 million baht.

The latest Aston Martin, the DBX707, not only fuses the latest technology, time-honoured craftsmanship and graceful styling, but it is also the world’s most powerful SUV and is now available to Thai buyers with prices starting at 24.9 million baht.

Aston Martin CEO Tobias Moers revealed the latest model is based on the DBX SUV, adding that the DBX707 takes performance and driving pleasure to the next level, reported Bangkok Post.

“Right from its first introduction, the DBX has represented Aston Martin’s dynamic and design values in a way that proves not all SUVs have to conform to the same compromises.

“With the DBX707, we have pushed the boundaries in every area to create a car which sets new standards of performance and desirability.

“It is the fastest, most powerful, best handling and most engaging SUV in the market.”

The British car manufacturer underlined that the DBX has undergone a significant upgrade. James Bond would approve.

The carmaker has made improvements to the 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, including ball-bearing turbos and new engine calibration, resulting in increased horsepower and torque output. Additionally, the DBX now boasts a nine-speed wet clutch automatic gearbox that can manage greater torque loadings compared to a standard torque converter.

The upgraded transmission allows the DBX to produce an impressive output of 707 horsepower (hp) and 900 nanometres (Nm), marking a substantial increase of 157hp and 200Nm over its predecessor. The SUV can achieve acceleration from 0-100 kilometres per hour (kph) in a mere 3.3 seconds, and reach a top speed of 310kph. The car’s stopping power comes from carbon ceramic brakes, measuring 420 millimetres (mm) at the front and 390mm at the rear, fitted with six-pot callipers. These brakes provide fade-free braking and also help to reduce the car’s unsprung weight by 40.5 kilogrammes.

Other notable features of the DBX upgrade include air suspension, an electronic limited-slip differential, dynamic drive modes with a “race start” function, dedicated buttons for suspension mode, ESP, and manual gear selection mode, which now holds manual like a sports car, rather than defaulting back to auto.

The DBX also boasts an active exhaust switch, which can open the valves of the new quad tailpipe sports exhaust system without needing to be in sport mode.

Overall, the Aston Martin DBX upgrade is a significant improvement from the previous model, offering outstanding performance, enhanced driving experience, and advanced technological features.

What are you waiting for? Be like James Bond!
