Just over four years since Aston Martin announced its investment in a brand-new manufacturing facility at St Athan in Wales, the first Aston Martin to be “Made in Wales” has been driven off the production line. It is also Aston Martin's first luxury SUV, the Aston Martin DBX.

The DBX signals a new era in Aston Martin’s pursuit to deliver exceptional performance, style and usability in a segment previously unexplored by Aston Martin. Powering the DBX is a 4.0 L twin turbo V8 producing 550 PS of maximum power and 700 Nm of maximum torque. Paired with the V8 is a 9-speed automatic gearbox.

With its AWD system, the DBX is a car that will allow the company to increase its presence in markets where perhaps the weather or terrain is less than conducive to rear-wheel drive sports cars like the Aston Martin Vantage. 0-100 km/h is achieved in 4.5 seconds while maximum speed is 291 km/h.

The clear emphasis on a spacious and luxurious cabin – whether seated in the front or back – will also allow Aston Martin to better reach customers who prefer to be driven rather than drive.

The DBX is a true Aston Martin; it captures the very spirit of the brand as a beautiful hand-built, yet technologically advanced car.

With around 80% of production expected to be exported and sold overseas, it is an important model for Aston Martin and a clear illustration of the strength of British manufacturing capabilities.

Minister for Economy, Transport and North Wales, Ken Skates, said: “This is a historic moment for Aston Martin and for Wales. It is also a huge win for the Welsh Government’s can-do attitude.”
