It was only a matter of time before Aston Martin followed Bentley, Rolls Royce, Lamborghini and Porsche with a super SUV of its own. The DBX is arguably the most beautiful of the lot and comes fitted with a more powerful 542bhp version of the Vantage’s 4.0-litre twin-turbo AMG-sourced V8. It’s also the first car to be built in Aston’s shiny new factory on a former RAF base in St Athan, Wales. With the company’s well publicised financial challenges, failure here isn’t really an option.
