The model, internally called Project Rambo, will be built on the DBX chassis and will receive a Mercedes engine. The planned circulation is 2500 copies. The series launch has not yet been confirmed, because the economic justification is not ready. However, in the wake of the popularity of brutal all-terrain vehicles, even an expensive and luxurious Aston Martin can sell well.

Aston Martin is thinking about releasing an SUV to compete with the Mercedes-Benz G-Class and Land Rover Defender. The project, internally called Rambo, has not yet received the green light. Although there is already information that the Aston extreme all-terrain vehicle will be a close relative of the DBX and will be produced in a circulation of 2,500 copies. Autocar writes about this with reference to its own sources.

Interestingly, the new Aston Martin is promised an engine like the Mercedes-AMG G 63. The four-liter V8 with two turbochargers in the German SUV develops 585 horsepower and 850 Nm of torque. But Aston’s output will most likely be higher, since the same M177 engine on the regular DBX707 produces 707 horsepower and 900 Nm.

It is possible that Project Rambo has something more interesting in store. For example, the British can take a hybrid powertrain from the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 SE Performance, combining a V8 4.0 biturbo engine, an AMG Speedshift MCT-9G automatic transmission and an electric motor on the rear axle. On the liftback, the combined output reaches 843 horsepower and 1,470 Nm of torque. And it accelerates to “hundreds” in just 2.9 seconds.
