Aston Martin tests SUV in N.Wales
ASTON Martin came to North Wales to give the luxury brand’s first SUV its maiden road test – taking on one of the stages of the Wales Rally GB.
The brand latest vehicle – named the DBX – brought its development prototype to the region for its first test (pictured).
It was in the hands of the company’s chief engineer Matt Becker when it tackled a stage used recently in the rally.
The company has not revealed which stage it was – as they plan to come back – but said it was “close to Snowdonia”.
Among the stage locations this year were Clocaenog Forest, Brenig, Gwydir Forest and land around Penmachno and Dolgellau and sharp eyed readers may be able to work out the route from the video and images.
North Wales has been a hit with car companies in recent months with the new Mercedes ‘glampervan’ and potential new Aston Martin ‘Bond car’ coming to the region.
DBX is scheduled to be unveiled in the last quarter of 2019 and will be built at Aston Martin Lagonda’s St Athan facility in South Wales. It is expected to cost around £140,000.
