The model, which was previously called Varekai, will enter the market under the name DBX, writes Motor1.

On the video of the German route “Nordschleife” got a test prototype Aston Martin DBX, which is interesting sound. Probably the car will receive a 4-liter turbocharged V8 production of AMG, which on the sports car DB11 produces 503 hp It is possible that later the model will receive the V12 own development of Aston Martin, but the first engine for DBX will be V8.

 It is likely that the Aston Martin crossover will receive from Mercedes-Benz and some elements of the interior. But the DBX electrical version will also be based on the British-made platform, but with German components. The electric car will appear in 2021 and will be assembled at a new Aston Martin plant in Wales along with Lagonda models.

Competitors for the Aston Martin DBX will already be serially Porsche Cayenne, Bentley Bentayga, Rolls-Royce Cullinan and Lamborghini Urus and future crossover Ferrari.
