We've seen airplanes with smaller wings than this.
Since it launched in 2020, the Aston Martin DBX has only been available with one engine option: a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 sourced from Mercedes-AMG producing 542 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. That's a crazy amount of grunt for an SUV, but there's still room for improvement when you consider that Aston Martin's competitors like the Lamborghini Urus pack over 600 horses. This will soon change, however.
Later this year, Aston Martin will launch a new mild-hybrid DBX, followed by a high-performance variant with over 600 hp. In 2023, Aston Martin will also launch the first-ever plug-in hybrid DBX with the same electrification technology as the AMG GT73e, meaning it could have over 800 hp. If you can't wait until then, Mansory has just given the DBX a massive performance and styling boost that makes the Lamborghini Urus look tame.
By remapping the ECU and installing larger turbochargers, a sports air filter, and a high-performance sports exhaust system available in two designs, Mansory has extracted 800 metric horsepower (789 hp SAE) and 590 lb-ft from the SUV's twin-turbo V8, an increase of 247 hp and 74 lb-ft. Thanks to these modifications, Mansory's DBX will accelerate from 0-62 mph in 3.8 seconds and max out at 201 mph, which is faster than the Lamborghini Urus. For reference, the stock DBX will do the same sprint in 4.3 seconds and hit a top speed of 181 mph.
As part of the conversion, Mansory has also designed an imposing carbon fiber body kit for the DBX. At the front, Mansory has fitted a new apron with an integrated carbon-fiber front lip. A new lightweight carbon fiber hood features additional cooling vents, while flared fenders make the DBX look more muscular. Two exhaust designs are available.
Downforce is also significantly increased thanks to a pair of prominent spoilers mounted to the tailgate and roof. Mansory's mean-looking DBX is painted in Black Metallic with contrasting Limegreen accents. Completing the exterior enhancements are a set of custom DX.5 wheels measuring 10x24 inches at the front and 12.5x24 inches at the rear painted in black and Limegreen matching the exterior.
The same color scheme is applied to the cabin, with Limegreen accents on the edge of the floor mats, the seats, the center console, and stitching on the dashboard and steering wheel, complemented with leather and visible carbon surfaces.
Mansory hasn't provided pricing details, but we're pretty sure this grotesque piece of kit doesn't come cheap.
