Aston Martin’s Q Branch Takes DBX SUV to the Dark Side
Aston’s first-ever SUV gets a menacing makeover.
Q by Aston Martin, the luxury British automaker’s bespoke personalization service that previously conjured Nicolas Bijan’s one-of-a-kind DBS Superleggera and a personal Triton submarine, has brought the DBX to the dark side with a menacing new custom package.
Aston’s team worked carefully to give the marque’s first luxury SUV an exclusive makeover without upsetting its fastback-like look and sporty lines, so much of their attention was focused on the interior.
The cabin boasts a glistening carbon fiber finish on the floating center console and door trims. Delivering a technical finish to the car’s interior, the centerpiece is machined from a solid 280-layer block of the ultra-tough material that was laid meticulously by hand after a 12-hour curing process and 90 hours of five-axis milling.
Another large piece of herringbone carbon fiber that spans the floor of the car’s storage area, diamond-patterned satin chrome aluminum accents and Obsidian Black leather round out the eye-catching cockpit.
A set of 20-inch gloss black-painted wheels already take the Q by Aston Martin DBX over the top, but a Satin Xenon Grey paint job, carbon fiber lower exterior, black anodized tread and sill plaques are available as even more exclusive options.
The DBX styled through Q by Aston Martin will be on display beginning March 4 at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, but no pricing details have been released. As Car and Driver notes, expect a significant hike over the base DBX’s $189,900 ask.
