It won’t be long till the first production version of the Aston Martin DBX is delivered to customers. The folks at Gaydon promised that the British marque’s first SUV will go into full production in 2020.
But before the DBX is ready to hit the production floor, the car was brought to Pirelli’s R&D Sottozero Centre in Sweden to continue its intensive development programme. The ice track allows the engineers to tweak how the car handles on snowy roads to ice handling courses.
Aston Martin Chief Engineer, Matt Becker said: “The Aston Martin DBX needs to be ready for a wide range of multi-terrain surfaces, so in addition to testing the car in normal day-to-day situations, we need to test it in extreme conditions such as these. Testing these prototypes in cold climate conditions helps us to assess the car’s early dynamics and crucially ensure confidence inspiring sure-footedness on low grip surfaces.”
