Just like in the regular DBX (save the sarcasm), the DBX 707 employs the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that Mercedes-AMG designed, but it produces 157 more horsepower, or 707 PS and has 900 Nm of peak torque rather than 700 Nm. Aston engineers have extracted all this power by installing a new ball-bearing turbos- to reduce the lag, changing the engine map, and installing a wet clutch in the 9-speed automatic gearbox.

 

If a cup of coffee can't do the trick, the soundtrack of the DBX 707 will certainly wake you up. The V8 has a deep rumble and, when in full chat, can make supercars whimper away with the noises it makes. Plus, when driving in GT mode, the DBX 707 can actually pass off as a hybrid but open the valves, and the astronauts at the space station will know that there is a DBX 707 on the move.
