At a recent event, which was officially presented to the British crossover Aston Martin DBX, current CEO Andy Palmer talked about the possibilities of the appearance under the hood of the car’s powerful V12 engine.
Aston Martin DBX is now backed by the power plant of Mercedes-AMG Twin-Turbo V8 that produces 542 power power and 516 Nm of torque. The journalists who were at the presentation of the prestigious innovations noted that in the engine compartment crossover DBX is still very much space and can be easily fit a powerful motor V12 twin-turbo.
Said Mr Palmer: “We probably will make other derivatives of the V8 engine. But our hefty V12 engine we will not install under the hood of the crossover Aston Martin DBX”.
Of course, the power plant V8 German sports brand Mercedes-AMG to offer more power, but this is far from the V12 motor produced by the British Aston Martin. Luxury crossover SUV the Rolls Royce Cullinan is currently the only production SUV that’s equipped with a V-shaped engine with 12 cylinders.
If the company Aston Martin has decided to offer buyers the opportunity to purchase DBX crossover with a powerful V12 motor, it is very likely that the car was positioned as the “charged” version of crossover, which traditionally would have received the prefix of AMR.
With this in mind, for Aston makes sense to release your AMR DBX crossover with motor V12 under the hood. Of course, the V12 is not much faster than the V8, but I’m sure that for many, the opportunity to have crossover with an extra 4 cylinders would be very important.
What do you think about this motor? He needed to crossover DBX AMR!
