Aston Martin isn’t exactly in mourning over its recent shove-off from the Ford empire. After its ownership changed hands, the British company immediately greenlighted its new Rapide sedan and DBS sportscar—and now, it’s plotting a DBX competitor for the Benz SLR and Bugatti Veyron. Britain’s AutoExpress magazine says the new range-topper would be spun from the VH chassis and would use a version of the Aston 6.0-liter V-12 pumped up to produce more than 700 hp. The magazine predicts a 0-60 mph time of 3.7 seconds and a top speed of more than 200 mph. The rear-drive car will sport a six-speed manual transmission and will have a suspension tuned by Prodrive. The pricetag for the DBX could push $500,000.
