The trailer, which pulls a first in the history of the brand Aston Martin crossover, is a special load cell that measures the force with which novelty can pull a payload.
Get ready to cross off another automaker from the list of prestigious brands without crossovers because of the British Aston Martin will present a production-ready crossover DBX in the coming months. Foreign journalists have published photos of test prototype of the new items that are a little more interesting than what we’ve seen before.
On the sides of the trailer, which pulls a crossover, there is an inscription “Taylor Dynamometer” is the company that offers dynamometers for engines and chassis and towing dynamometers, like the one which transported DBX. This means that Aston Martin estimated the capabilities of its engine and various parameters such as the amount of energy supplied to the wheels. Crossover probably experienced a 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo from the German Mercedes-AMG, whose power is in the region of 500 HP.
We could see the production version of the Aston Martin DBX crossover at the Frankfurt motor show in September this year. However, Aston Martin may wait for the auto show in Los Angeles in the second half of November.
If this is not enough, own the V12 engine can be in the engine compartment of the new crossover DBX. It is possible that the car will get a hybrid powerplant with a large number of Nm, however, if it happens, this version of the model will be offered immediately.
In these pictures there is more than a dynamometer, because the view through the rear window shows that this prototype has a roll cage and some kind of additional equipment on the rear seats to simulate the extra weight of rear passengers. DBX looks a bit strange, because it lacks some of the production details such as rear lights and rear door handles.
