Aston Martin DBX707 Lightweight Version Is Being Considered

A lighter, more simplified version of Aston Martin’s DBX SUV may be in the works, according to CarExpert. While Aston Martin has not confirmed plans for such a model, Aston Martin’s senior vehicle engineering manager, Andy Tokley, has stated that a lighter DBX has been considered since the project’s inception.

Tokley added that removing some mass from the vehicle would be simple. This could be accomplished by removing some of the standard but unnecessary features, such as swapping the rear bench for two individual seats. They can also remove the standard glass roof and electric power blind to reduce the top end of the super SUV by 55 pounds (25 kilogrammes).

Aston Martin accounts for 220 lbs (100 kg) of roof load on the car, which affects the tuning of the electronic stability programme (ESP) because it always has to assume there is weight on the roof. By removing this weight, the company may be able to improve the car’s ESP tuning and overall performance.

Tokley claims that the DBX’s body structure is modular, making it simple to adjust the platform’s length and height. This could allow Aston Martin to create a stripped-down version of the SUV without having to re-engineer the vehicle’s underpinnings.

A lighter DBX would likely appeal to customers looking for a high-performance SUV with a sportier edge. It would also allow Aston Martin to compete with the Lamborghini Urus Performante. Aston Martin may be able to broaden its customer base while establishing itself as a luxury automaker capable of producing high-performance vehicles.

The DBX707 is the most recent addition to the DBX family. The same 4.0-liter V8 engine powers it, but it’s been upgraded to produce up to 697 horsepower and 663 pound-feet (900 Newton-meters) of torque. The company has also expanded the DBX range with an inline six-cylinder variant for China.
