Aston Martin Reveals Luxury SUV Crafting Process

A British-German Mix: The Best of Both Worlds

In the year 2020, Aston Martin got in on the ever-escalating luxury SUV market by introducing the DBX, featuring a twice-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 from Mercedes-AMG. Closely following this, the DBX707 was then released; despite that the company wasn’t striving for outrageous power, they still claim this model is the strongest of any high-end SUV.

Pieces that constitute the exquisite sport utility vehicle (SUV) are being fastened together – through screwing, welding, stitching and pasting – at the corporation’s Gaydon, England facility. Frame was lucky enough to be invited to view how their factory performs its operations.

A DBX’s journey begins in a body-in-white facility, where the frame and sheet metal are united. Subsequently, the panels are scrupulously refined to identify any defects in the carbon fiber. After obtaining authorization of the parts, automation handles the paint job in a dustless room, making sure there are no blemishes in the coating.

Simultaneously, the base platform is being constructed on a separate assembly line. The core components which consist of an engine, transmission system, all-wheel setup, and brakes are put together for this particular purpose.

Unlike most auto production plants, Aston Martin persists in enlisting a number of experienced laborers who manually assemble certain components. The video depicts a worker fitting modules to the acclaimed double-wishbone suspension installation, as the other focuses on the illustrious AMG V8.

Staff in the manufacturing plant are responsible for wrapping the emission outlets with insulation to protect the parts of the drivetrain from rising heat. Given the potential performance of the DBX707 when operated by competent drivers, this attention to detail can be beneficial.

On a regular basis these videos evoke a sense of amazement. Aston Martin’s craftsman employ an old-world style technique while constructing seating, exhibiting the intricacies that go into making them just ideal. Reportedly, only humans have the ability to position the seat cushioning exactly, and this makes a noteworthy difference when it comes to coziness.

Unusually, some of the complicated stitching is now undertaken by robots. The Aston Martin logo featured on the backrests is fully crafted by a robotic machine. Aston has decided to use this technology as it guarantees greater swiftness and accuracy; even though this approach may be contentious with Rolls-Royce and Bentley, who are premium rivals, in the high-end luxury car industry.

Once assembly of the base platform and body is finalized, they are then mounted in the vehicle. After roughly eight minutes, the video shifts its attention, offering a brief view of how DB11s are created.

With the DB12 now unveiled, its predecessor is beginning to look a tad outmoded. Nonetheless, it’s quite possible that numerous manufacturing strategies may be repeated in this newer iteration.
