But we'll have to wait until December for the camouflage to come off.
Aston Martin may not have any new models to show at Frankfurt, but we all know the automaker is busy preparing the DBX crossover for its debut later this year. Prototypes of Aston Martin's answer to the Porsche Cayenne, Bentley Bentayga, and Rolls-Royce Cullinan have been spotted out in the wild, and Aston Martin also recently gave us a glimpse of the DBX's front fascia.
This has enabled Kolesa to produce some renders showing us what the production version will look like when the camouflage comes off, and they look very convincing.
Whereas the DBX Concept shown in 2015 was essentially a high-riding coupe, the DBX will be a more traditional five-door crossover with a long wheelbase and short front overhangs. At the front, the DBX will sport Aston Martin's signature grille seen on other DB models like the DB11, but the bumper will be positioned higher to distinguish it.
The crossover will also have pop-out door handles, giving the sides a clean look. At the back, the taillights have a similar shape to the Vantage's, and the bumper looks aggressive with two large integrated exhaust pipes.
The Aston Martin DBX is expected to share the same AMG-sourced 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine as the Vantage that produces 503 hp, but there could also be another variant that borrows the DB11's 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 and possibly a hybrid version. Aston Martin has even hinted that the DBX could come with a drift mode. So while it may be an SUV, it will still be exciting to drive.
Kolesa hasn't rendered the cabin, but spy shots have shown the DBX's interior will have a lot in common with Mercedes-AMG models such as the steering wheel and infotainment system. We still don't have a debut date yet, but Aston Martin has confirmed the DBX will be unveiled in December.
