First drive Aston Martin DBX 707 prototype review

Other changes experienced briefly around Stowe included the new sports seats, which clamp you securely, plus a revised centre console with a rotary dynamic-mode selector plus separate buttons for dampers, stability control and the manual gearbox mode. 

The dashboard display screen still lacks touch sensitivity, but Moers says Aston Martin is working hard on what will become its own user interface.

While much less flamboyant than the Lamborghini Urus both inside and out, the DBX 707 is almost certainly considerably faster.

For a perspective on its outlandish performance, consider the fact that its claimed 7.4sec 0-100mph time is just 0.1sec behind that of the Jaguar XJ220 – the fastest production car in the world 30 years ago. Yet this is what the top end of the market is demanding. Moers reckons that the 707 is likely to make up more than half of total DBX production.

Prices start at £189,000 – a £17,800 supplement over the standard DBX. We will be able to tell you how the finished version drives on road next month.Aston Martin DBX 707 prototype specifications
