Emotive English sports car builder, Aston Martin, has pulled the sheets off its very latest creation, and no it’s not just an ordinary DBX painted in a different colour. Gaydon’s first-ever SUV is finally getting the brand’s bespoke service and was slated to debut at the upcoming Geneva International Motor Show. The bespoke DBX intends to show off its “darker side” as the company calls it.
Aston’s personalisation program for the DBX is spilt into three levels, just like all other Aston’s. The first is called ‘Q by Aston Martin – Commission’ which allows buyers to customise options to suit their individual tastes. This is then followed up by ‘Q by Aston Martin - Collection’ and ‘Q by Aston Martin - Accessories’.
Opting for the Commission on the DBX gets you kit such as 22-inch gloss black alloy wheels while the interior receives a bespoke diamond-patterned satin chrome aluminium jewellery pack which adorns helpings of Obsidian Black leather. The centre console and door inserts are kitted out in carbon fibre. Furthermore, an expansive single piece of herringbone carbon fibre can be found throughout the floor of the car’s boot.
For those looking to further customise their DBX, look no further than the Collection. In this case, the DBX will receive Satin Xenon Grey paint, a carbon fibre lower exterior pack and black anodised tread and sill plaques.
“While our designer specifications previously demonstrated an incredibly broad range of choice and expression from our existing palette of colours and materials, ‘Q by Aston Martin’ offers the tools to those who have an uninhibited desire to push the boundaries of what is achievable” said Marek Reichman, Aston Martin Executive Vice President & Chief Creative Officer.
“Of course, the example shown today is just one sphere of inspiration that can be explored, but with DBX providing the ultimate canvas to bring a vision to life, I fully expect to see a wide and broad variety of creations over the coming months” he added.
However, as I’m sure most of you are aware at this point, the 2020 Geneva International Motor Show – in which the above mentioned DBX was slated to debut in – has been official cancelled. As such the marque will be broadcasting its press conference instead.
