At the Geneva Show Aston Martin has revealed the DBX Concept, an all-electric, all-wheel drive sportscar that explores the company’s vision for a future, global luxury GT.


Designed by the design team at the brand’s global headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire, under the direction of Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman, the DBX Concept introduces an evolution in the company’s design DNA, with the goal of attracting new potential customers around the world.

The exterior is characterized by distinctive proportions that blend the typical coupé silhouette with a raised ground clearance that underlines the all-wheel drive transmission.

The front and rear end look stay true to the brand’s tradition thanks to the trademark front grille and the C-shaped tail light design, which help instantly identify the DBX as an Aston Martin.

The graphic look is defined by the contrast between the highly reflective Black Pearl Chromium paint finish – created to mimic the look of a black pearl – and the metal trims, machined from billet aluminium with visible milling lines.

The vehicle is equipped with an all-electric drivetrain featuring in-wheel motors powered by lithium sulphur cells.

The DBX also focuses on every day practicality, with a relatively spacious cabin capable of accomodating four adults and a decent loading capacity – with a rear trunk and forward load bay – enabled by the absence of a conventional engine compartment.

Technical highlights include drive-by-wire electric steering, active LED exterior lights, carbon ceramic brakes with a kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) and rear view cameras in place of conventional mirrors.

The interior adopts a number of non-automotive standard materials, and is characterzed by the contrast between the velvet-like Nubuck leather and the hi-tech equipment.

The exposed leather reveals a sandwiched accent layer, inspired by high-end furniture, while the car’s interior bright ware matches that of the exterior with the addition of a gold ‘pin striping’ element on the edging.

Among the innovative solutions are the toughened glass with an auto-dimming ‘smart glass’ inter-layer, and  the driver and passenger head-up displays.

 

Marek Reichman explained: “The exceptional craftsmanship, with detailing more typically seen on luxury consumer goods or fine jewellery, gives the DBX Concept genuinely global appeal.”
