2023 Aston Martin DBX spied; could feature a V12 engine

The new sportier version is said to be called the 'DBX S' and will feature a more aggressive design

The Aston Martin DBX SUV has been a huge success for the British luxury carmaker, bringing in large volume sales across international markets. Now, the British carmaker is said to be testing a more powerful variant of the SUV, with an expected launch sometime in 2023.

According to a media report, the new Aston Martin DBX variant will be an uprated performance-oriented variant of the SUV. Reports suggest that the new and more powerful variant is expected to feature a large V12 under the bonnet.

The new performance variant has been recently spotted testing at the Nurburgring in Germany. The new sportier version is said to be called the 'DBX S' and will feature a more aggressive design, with a larger front grille and air intakes, revised bodywork, upsized brakes, lowered suspension and a bunch of other updates.

The V12 engine for the DBX will be borrowed from the brand's DB11 AMR model, which is said to produce 630 BHP. This will put it in direct competition to the new Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT. However, Aston Martin is yet to make any official confirmation regarding the use of the V12 on its SUV offering.
