Aston Martin DBX AMG Engine Sound and Specs Announced

Aston Martin will once again be turning to AMG for an engine, this time in the new DBX SUV.

The upcoming Aston Martin DBX SUV will indeed be powered by a 4.0-litre, twin-turbo V8 built by AMG which is also used to power the redesigned Aston Martin Vantage. Power output is rated at 543 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.

According to Aston Martin, we can expect great things from the upcoming DBX. It has apparently achieved similar performance and cornering numbers to the Vantage while testing on the Nürburgring, and even managed to outperform the DBS Superleggera. Aston Martin says the DBX lapped the famed circuit in under 8 minutes.

Top speed is said to exceed 180 mph although final numbers aren’t confirmed. As for the sound of the engine that you can hear in the video above, it has been tuned to feature “a deep bass with increasing mid-tones, creating true auditory exhilaration, particularly in more sporting drive modes”.

The Aston Martin DBX is the Brand's First SUV

“We have concentrated our work to ensure that the calibration and tune of this 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 delivers both the everyday usability and refinement expected by SUV owners. However, we have also focused heavily on matching that with the engaging driving dynamics that are commanded by our brand and inherent in every Aston Martin and early indications of the car’s overall performance have been incredibly promising. The next few months will be extremely important to us, as we continue to hone the powertrain credentials and a dynamic setup that will help make this the most exciting SUV on the market”, said Matt Becker, Aston Martin’s Chief Engineer.

The Aston Martin DBX sport utility vehicle will be unveiled in December.
