Here's Aston Martin’s New DBX SUV Testing On A Filthy Rally Stage

Aston Martin DBX prototype

The new factory in Wales, meanwhile, will also become Aston Martin's self-proclaimed "home of electrification" when the company begins producing fully-electric models in the future.

The company shared a video of the truck - which gets its name from Aston Martin's concept vehicle SUV - getting covered in dirt while taking on a rally stage in the Welsh countryside, and we must say it actually looks good doing it.

Whether or not 007 will head for the woods in one in his next film is yet to be seen, but it would make for a great chase scene.

Aston Martin's first-ever SUV has been revealed in near-production form.

Even a single episode of activity gives short-term benefits such as lowering blood pressure, reducing anxiety and improving sleep. The advice is similar for older adults , but activities should include things that promote balance to help avoid falls.

Becker said: "As an engineer, it's genuinely exciting to get a feel for the vehicle you're working to create".

The first development DBX prototype is being put through its paces along a demanding Welsh Rally stage in the hands of the company's chief engineer, Matt Becker. Yes, Aston Martin has essentially planned to continue with the concept name for the production-spec as well which is earmarked for the fourth quarter of 2019. Unlike the DBX concept which was merely a sportscar with jacked up ride height, the product version will adopt a conventional five-door body style with steeply raked rear windshield. Likewise, the lengthy hashtag, with spaces (somebody #doesn't get hashtags), confirms the British marque is all too aware of the pressure it faces in entering the now-crowded premium sports SUV segment.

Aston Martin chief Andy Palmer added that the testing of the prototype was "a momentous chapter in the story of our first SUV". And if high-selling DBX SUV models (like the Porsche Cayenne) allow for more Valkyries, DBSs and Vantages (and Porsche 911s), then more power to them.

The DBX is keenly awaited by Aston Martin dealers in the key markets of the United Kingdom and USA, said Max Warburton, an analyst for Bernstein Research.
