Aston Martin is celebrating the success of the Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One Team with the release of an exclusive AMR23 Edition for the world’s most powerful luxury SUV – the DBX707. Named after the brand’s Formula 1 challenger, the AMR23 Edition creates a DBX707 that shares a racing identity with both the AMR23 F1 car and the Official Medical Car of Formula 1.

The DBX707 AMR23 is still powered by a redesigned bonnet with new louvred blades. The Mercedes-AMG sourced 4.0 litre V8 engine now features ball bearing turbochargers and a bespoke engine calibration to liberate more power and torque. It now pushes a whooping 520kW and 900Nm. It’s paired to a 9-speed ‘wet clutch’ automatic transmission which is said to be capable of managing much increased torque loadings and deliver faster gear changes compared to a regular torque converter automatic. Aston Martin claims the DBX707 will sprint from 0-100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 311km/h (193mph) making it the fastest production SUV in the world.
