Aston Martin DBX can get extremely productive V12.

According to Motor1, Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer hinted that the company is working on a powerful version of DBX. During an interview with Road & Track, Palmer indicated that the crossover will receive new engines and will acquire a track modification of the AMR.

Debuting this week, the Aston Martin DBX is available with only a 4.0-liter V8 with 550 hp. and 700 Nm of torque. The transmission is a 9-speed automatic transmission from Mercedes-AMG. The crossover is built on a platform that is partially unified with the DB11 and DBS supercars. Palmer said there are no technical restrictions for introducing a turbocharged V12.

Recall that the power plant Aston Martin V12 on the DB11 supercar develops 608 hp. and 700 Nm of torque. The more powerful DB11 AMR produces 639 hp. The British can also install a V8 Mercedes-AMG, because on the GLE63 S crossover such an aggregate produces 612 hp. with a torque of 850 Nm.

If the crossover receives a V12 engine, then Aston Martin will become the owner of the world’s second crossover with this type of power plant after Rolls-Royce Cullinan.
