Aston Martin DBX707 pays tribute to its Formula 1 Team with AMR24 Edition

Aston Martin DBX707 is not just an SUV, it's a Super SUV (it is what they like to call it). Now, it's giving Formula One® fans one more reason to be intrigued. The New Edition, a tribute to the Aston Martin Formula One® AMR24 car driven by Fernando Alonso and the official medical car, is a DBX707 that your Lamborghini or Porsche can't match. This is a level of uniqueness that only comes with F1 participation. With this special edition, Aston Martin is also celebrating the Aramco F1 Team’s best-ever season. 

DBX707 AMR24 Edition Everything We Know

Aston says it’s a “curation of unique colour and trim features”, which is another way of saying DXB707 will not get any performance upgrades. Instead, the manufacturer went with just cosmetic upgrades. The AMR24 Edition DBX707 is available with exclusive colour options for both the interior and exterior. Buyers can choose any Podium Green, Onyx Black or Neutron White paint, and their SUV will still look green. All the offered exterior colour options are complimented by Aston Martin Racing Green and AMR Lime on the brake callipers. The exterior lime accents other than the brake calliper can also be specced with Trophy Silver. The Super SUV wears 23-inch Fortis wheels in either satin or gloss black. To establish exclusivity, each Aston Martin DBX707 AMR24 Edition will boast a unique AMR24 engine plaque. 

On the insides, the British marque's Inspire Sport interior trim has two options. The options are an Onyx black Monotone or an Onyx Black with Eifel Green Duotone. Both options incorporate contrast lime stitching and piping, carrying the exterior F1 aesthetics. Finer details can be specified with extended carbon fibre and dark chrome jewellery or titanium mesh complimented by satin chrome. The Aston Martin logo is also applied in foil to the dash panel, and the AMR24 is etched into the door sills, leaving occupants with no doubt of the Aston Martin racing bloodline. This identification is also supported by the application of a unique, lime hand-stitched saddle strap to the wireless charging station. Aston Martin has also thrown in a new Bowers and Wilkins surround sound speakers.

The beating heart of the matter is a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 sourced from AMG that produces an impressive 700 hp and 900 Nm. The brand claims that the super SUV can put all this torque to the rear wheels on demand. The beastly engine is mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission with a wet clutch. The DBX707 AMR24 can launch from 0-100 kph in 3.1 seconds and achieve a top speed of 311 kph.
