THE DBX, OR THE SUV YOU NEVER KNEW YOU NEEDED

New Zealand Classic Car - - National And International News -

The ‘DBX’ is the name of­fi­cially con­firmed for the new As­ton Mar­tin SUV. It is to be built at the mar­que’s brand-new fa­cil­ity in Wales. Two EX-RAF air­craft hangars have been con­verted to give this new SUV a fly­ing start into the fast lane, with As­ton Mar­tin ad­vis­ing that the ve­hi­cle has now com­menced fi­nal test­ing pre­pro­duc­tion. Be­fore it is re­leased in 2019, it will be tested on all types of ter­rain — ev­ery­thing from the high speed Ger­man au­to­bahns and James May’s beloved Nür­bur­gring to high alpine passes, scorch­ing deserts, and frozen wastes. All this so that its new own­ers can drive across town, or over what­ever else may be in their way, to get to their favourite cafe for their own frozen dessert.
