Ahead of an expected official debut in December, the Aston Martin DBX SUV has been caught undisguised by a Spanish website.
We’ve seen a fair bit of the Aston Martin DBX – Aston’s firts SUV – in recent months as AML run disguised versions around the globe. But now we get to see the DBX with no disguise for the first time.
Thanks to Spanish website AutoPista (click the AutoPista link for more photos) we now get to see the new DBX without its disguise for the first time and sporting the red paint job we’ve already seen lurking under the disguise, a paint job which looks likely to be the launch colour – and a tribute to its Welsh production.
The undisguised photo (above) of the DBX confirms its big grille and alloys and, on the additional photos, a big rear diffuser and duck tail spoiler, as well as chrome strakes on the flanks and more chrome round the windows.
Frankly, although it’s interesting to see the DBX without disguise, it simply conforms much of what we already know about its looks, looks which make the DBX more Crossover than SUV as AML ambitiously aim to make their high-riding model a ‘proper’ sports SUV.
That will be helped with the confirmation from Aston that the DBX will have a 542bhp 4.0 litre V8 under the bonnet, a more powerful version of the same Mercedes engine we’ve already seen in the Vantage and DB11.
Aston Martin desperately needs the DBX to work, and so far it looks very promising. Expect more spy shots and more details as we near the official debut in December.
