Subtlety, your name is definitely not Mansory. The German tuner has unveiled its latest subject, an Aston Martin DBX endowed with the characteristic glitz of the company. If you can look beyond the visual onslaught, however, the car is known to have been first tuned DBX.
Mansory modified the Aston’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with a new one ECU, larger turbos and reworked exhaust. This transforms the already powerful DBX from a 542-horsepower, 516-pound SUV into an 800-horsepower, 738-pound behemoth. A shield-shaped badge reads “Mansory P800 Performance” in case you have any doubts about its release, but there is now this alphanumeric sequence mentioned in its press materials. Mansory claims a 0-62 time of 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 202 mph. Brakes and wheels are not discussed either.
The company also says many of the aerodynamic changes are needed to keep the DBX grounded as it reaches supercar speed. These include a widebody kit with pronounced air intakes on the fender, a front fascia that offers more openings than the Washington generals, and the rear diffuser gives customers the choice of two positions for the dual exhaust. One places the tailpipes on opposite sides of the rear fascia and one places them side by side in the center.
Many of these pieces, including the side skirts, are made of forged carbon. We know it’s supposed to be light, modern, and expensive, but we can’t help but think they end up looking like the simple granite countertop of a Zillow fin. You may also have noticed that the Mansory DBX has not one, but two elaborate rear fenders. Each one is made of forged carbon and also looks like a Klingon ritual battle weapon.
You can have the Mansory DBX in any color as long as it is black with lime green. While the DBX’s exterior isn’t overly saturated with T.green outer marker, the same cannot be said for its cabin. There, a dizzying pattern of chartreuse AM grilles on the seats, door panels and center console create the nightmare scenario of being trapped inside a Magic eye manifest.
If you’re really in the mood for faster DBX, we recommend waiting for the next V12, which it will likely keep Aston Martin traditionally elegant style. The DBX might have saved Aston Martin from financial ruin, but let’s not spoil the DBX.
