Debuted the first SUV from «Aston Martin»
The legendary British automaker, Aston Martin, has officially begun production of its debut crossover in the history of the brand.
The DBX model began to be assembled at one of the brand's enterprises located in Wales. Recall that the first concept car was presented back in 2015, and only now the SUV has reached the assembly line.
The pre-production version was presented to the public last fall - then the technical details of the equipment of the novelty became known. The British chose the V8 engine with a displacement of 4.0 liters from Mercedes-AMG, which they had previously used in the production of other models, as the main power unit. But, especially for the «SUV», the motor was further modified and forced by local specialists: the output of the motor increased from the standard 510 horsepower and 675 N.m. up to 550 h.p. and 700 N.m. The engine is paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive system. In such equipment, the car accelerates from zero to «hundreds» in just 4.5 seconds, and its maximum speed is 291 km/h.
At the moment, it is known that more than 2,000 pre-orders worldwide have been received for the novelty. As for the future market price of a serial copy, they will be known a little later.
