The new Aston Martin DBX 707 is supposed to be the quickest, fastest and most powerful production SUV on sale. There’s only one way to put that to the test – in a quarter-mile drag race against the all-conquering Lamborghini Urus.

If you’re wondering why Aston picked that number, it’s a less-than-subtle hint that this high-riding luxury car’s 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine produces a frankly bonkers 707hp.
Torque sits at an equally staggering 900Nm – or 200Nm more than the standard car. To handle this extra grunt, Aston’s engineers gave the 707 a new nine-speed automatic gearbox with an especially beefy wet-clutch instead of a normal torque converter. Like the normal car, this power is sent to all four wheels.
The Lamborghini Urus uses a similar recipe to the Aston – a big V8 engine, an automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive – but starts with subtly different ingredients.
For example, its 4.0-litre twin-turbo engine pumps out ‘just’ 650hp and has to make do with 850Nm of torque. The automatic gearbox is a touch milder, too – it uses a conventional torque converter and only musters eight gears to the Aston’s nine.
Both cars will set you back the bones of £200,000 (once you’ve added a few tasty options, that is) and tip the scales at more than two tonnes. But, which will be the quickest in carwow’s signature quarter-mile dash? You’ll have to watch the video to find out…
