The famed British sportscar maker has finally done it — Aston Martin has built an SUV. Uber luxurious and fast would be a better description of this new model set to release this quarter. A direct competitor to the Bentley Bentayga and the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, this new entry will boast a Mercedes-AMG-sourced 4.0-liter twin turbo V8. With 546 horsepower, it is more than just a sporty SUV — it is an SUV for the likes of James Bond. The higher-end version will carry the Aston Martin 5.2-liter V12. That is some serious power for an SUV this size and undoubtedly some top-of-the-line performance.
Richly appointed and meant to be a technology hub, this high-performance SUV has it all. The custom-appointed interior is all designed to look and feel like a private jet. The interior, in addition to its luxurious yet sporty appeal, is equipped with the latest technology from Aston Martin.
The exterior is sleek and its timeless design houses an interior that is roomy and seats five comfortably — reportedly, that is, as Aston Martin has gone to great pains to keep it under wraps. This five-door beast will be followed by a hybrid model and eventually an all-electric version. Details are slim, but this debut will excite the greatest of enthusiasm and will not disappoint.
There are more than 11 distinct packages offered. The options available within each of these carefully selected packages encompass everything from exquisite details such as illuminated tread plates, polished carbon fiber tail pipe finishers and valve caps with Aston Martin wings, to larger options for carrying bicycles or surf boards on the roof. Suffice to say, Aston Martin has worked with its trusted brand partners to ensure it is offering the best solutions to customers, whatever the usage, journey or destination.
