Subtlety, your name is definitely not Mansory. The German tuner has revealed his latest track, a Aston Martin DBX equipped with the striking feature of the company. However, if you can look beyond the visual assault, the car stands out as the first to tune in. DBX.
Mansory modified Aston’s 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine built by AMG with a new ECU, bigger turbos and reworked exhaust. That transforms the already mighty DBX from a 542-horsepower, 516-pound-foot SUV to an 800-horsepower, 738-pound-foot behemoth. A shield shaped badge reads “Mansory P800 Performance” in case you have any doubts about its output, but now there is this alphanumeric sequence mentioned in your press materials. Mansory claims a 0-62 time of 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 202 mph. Brakes and wheels are not discussed either.
The firm also claims that many of the aerodynamic changes are necessary to keep the DBX grounded as it reaches supercar speeds. These include a widebody kit with pronounced fender vents, a front fascia that offers more openings than the Washington Generalsand the rear diffuser gives customers a choice of two dual exhaust locations. One places the tailpipes on opposite sides of the rear fascia and one places them side by side in the center.
Many of these bits, including the side skirts, are made from forged carbon. We know it’s supposed to be lightweight, modern, and expensive, but we can’t help but think that they end up looking like the basic granite countertop on a Zillow fin. You may have also noticed that the Mansory DBX has not one, but two elaborate rear wings. Each one is made from forged carbon, and each one also looks like a Klingon ritual battle weapon.
You can have the Mansory DBX in any colour you always want it to be black with lime green. While the exterior of the DBX is not overly saturated in tgreen extmarkerThe same cannot be said for your cabin. There, a dizzying pattern of chartreuse-colored AM grilles on the seats, door panels and center console bring to life the nightmarish setting of being trapped inside a Magic Eye poster.
If you really have a jones for a faster DBX, we recommend that you wait for the next V12, which will probably retain Aston martin traditionally elegant style. The DBX may have saved Aston Martin from financial ruin, but let’s not screw up the DBX.
