Aston Martin DBX AMR24 Edition: New look, no extra grunt for F1-inspired model

Aston Martin is leaning on its recent Formula One pedigree to launch a new version of its DBX707, but don’t expect enhanced performance from the super SUV.

If you think this sounds familiar, you’d be right – last year the British marque launched a special edition DBX707, also to commemorate the carmaker’s Formula One ventures.

However, the Aston Martin DBX707 AMR23 Edition launched while the team was enjoying regular podium finishes, and the new AMR24-inspired SUV comes as it battles in the mid-field.

Exterior changes compared to last year’s special edition are minimal.

You can still opt for an exclusive Podium Green paint finish with lime green-accented carbon fibre body extensions, or now choose from Onyx Black and Neutron White finishes which can be teamed with Trophy Silver accents.

Other AMR24-specific additions compared to the DBX707 it’s based on include a bespoke engine plaque, and Racing Green or AMR Lime brake calipers.

The AMR24 rides on new Aston Martin’s 23-inch ‘Fortis’ wheels, available in either satin or gloss black.

Inside the cabin is where the AMR24 looks most different from last year’s special edition.

The DBX707 recently benefited from a major dashboard overhaul, which saw the SUV score a new instrument cluster, new-look air vents, a centre console-mounted gear selector in place of the dash-topping buttons, a range of more modern physical controls, and an updated steering wheel.

The Inspire Sport trim is made standard on the AMR24, either in Onyx Black with Lime contrast stitching and piping, or Onyx Black and Eifel Green two-tone.

There’s also more carbon fibre and dark chrome or titanium mesh and satin chrome highlights then the standard DBX707.

The car’s door cards feature AMR24 etching, while there’s also a lime hand-stitched saddle strap on the wireless charging station.

Normally an option on the DBX707, a Bowers and Wilkins 1600-watt, 23-speaker audio system is fitted as standard to the AMR24 Edition.

Unfortunately for those expecting greater performance, this latest special edition – like the AMR23 before it – is a cosmetic package.

A twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 engine continues to produce 520kW of power and 900Nm of torque, driving all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission.

While orders have opened for the Aston Martin DBX707 AMR24 Edition, there’s no word on if it’ll come to Australia.

Aston Martin is yet to announce pricing for the updated DBX in Australia.
