Outright Performance, Luxury
I am having quite a hard time trying to summarise the DBX 707 experience. First things first, I was given a very short timespan to really get to push the 707 to its limits. But from what I experienced, I was left awestruck. It truly is an SUV with its underpinnings taken from a supercar. While the regular DBX had all the charisma and charm that Aston Martin is known for, it lacked the all-out performance that customers wanted. But with the Aston Martin DBX 707, all that performance is available in abundance.
The only thing that is a thorn in this otherwise gorgeous flower is its price tag. A whopping 4.63 crore is extremely steep when looking at its competition which primarily is only the upcoming Lamborghini Urus Performante. But trust me when I say this, at the helm of the Aston Martin DBX 707, I managed to fulfil my childhood dream of living a lifestyle James Bond lives like, and that memory for me is priceless.
