DBX - a 700hp Aston Martin
Now that Prodrive is the new Owner of Aston martin, they are very busy with planing the future for the company. And by we can see is a really bright one: the new DBS is on the work, Rapide has confirmed for production and a new model, codenamed DBX is in plans.
Prodrive has ambitious plans for the new BDX, and one of them competing with Mercedes McLaren SLR and Bugatti Veyron. The new Aston martin supercar will be powered by a tuned version of the 6.0-litre V12 engine producing more than 700bhp.
In performance this means a top speed in excess of 205mph and a 0-60mph time of less than 3.7 seconds. Inspired by the Aston Martin Zagato, launched back in 1986 primarily to reach 300km/h (186mph), the car will probably feature much of the technology which underpins the forthcoming DBS in a smaller, more potent package.
The BDX will feature a a six-speed manual gearbox. The new DBX it is expected to be priced at £350,000.
