Mansory's 800-HP Aston Martin DBX Will Hurt Your Eyes

Tuning / 20 Comments

The British SUV has been massacred again.

German aftermarket tuning outfit Mansory has done it again, and by "it," we mean "ruin a perfectly good car," this time in the form of the Aston Martin DBX. This is not the first time Mansory has massacred the British SUV, but its most recent attempt is no better than the first; it's arguably worse.

Like the first poor DBX to suffer at the hands of the tuner, the 4.0-liter AMG-sourced twin-turbo V8 engine has been boosted from 542 horsepower to 800 metric horsepower (789 hp SAE). This was achieved with an ECU remap, larger turbochargers, a new air intake filter, and a high-performance exhaust system.

That's all good and well, but now we must draw your attention to the styling. Part of Mansory's new range of body kits, this design is no less offensive than others from the outfit.


Forged carbon has been scattered all over the car, giving the DBX weird proportions from a distance and a penchant for causing nausea up close. On the front bumper, a chunky spoiler is met by clip-on attachments for the lower side intakes. This theme continues in profile, with the side fender vents conspicuously sporting larger accents and the side skirts made bulkier with extensions. The mirror caps are also larger and finished in forged carbon, while the hood sports louvered vents and the arches have been widened. It's a very choppy look that isn't all that cohesive, but at least the wheels are fairly sedate. Then again, they look like they belong on a Rolls-Royce Cullinan. Oh, wait - Mansory already ruined that car. Things only get worse around the rear.


Probably the most offensive angle of the car is from behind, which shows a big roof spoiler that looks relatively subtle, thanks to the inclusion of a massive wing atop the existing ducktail spoiler. Yo, dawg, we heard you like spoilers...

Lower down, Mansory has fitted a random forged carbon trim piece to the tailgate and added more of the chopped-up carbon to the rear bumper vents. Finally, the enormous diffuser looks large enough to cause a global shortage of carbon fiber and houses relocated and rifled exhaust tips that sit in its center, a la Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT.

Pricing and availability have not been revealed, but happily, Mansory upgrades are usually too expensive to be seen often. And with a 0-62 time of 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 202 mph, those that do make it to the road won't sear your eyeballs for too long.
