Aston Martin DBX makes track debut at Dubai Autodrome
To mark its arrival in the Middle East, Aston Martin’s first SUV, DBX, was put through its paces at Dubai Autodrome by Mohammed Ben Sulayem. An avid fan of the British marque, the 14 FIA Middle East Rally Championship winner, President of the Emirates Motorsports Organization, and Vice President of the FIA is the first in the region to have tested the DBX on track.
Having launched to rave reviews internationally, Ben Sulayem certainly shared these sentiments, commenting, “I am really impressed by what Aston Martin has managed to achieve with the DBX and overwhelmed with its driving dynamics and handling both on and off the track. The track experience was certainly on level with the emotions stirred by the brand’s iconic sports cars, and in the off-road zone, it was apparent that the DBX is a true SUV. The DBX brings a new driving dimension to the Aston Martin model range and one that will no doubt be appreciated not only in the Middle East but all over the world. It is clear that the brand is taking major steps in strengthening its positioning as one of the leading automotive companies in the world, and the news of the new F1 team set to start racing next year only solidifies this. I have no doubt that the future is bright for Aston Martin.”
DBX signals a new era in Aston Martin’s pursuit to deliver exceptional performance, style, and usability in a segment previously unexplored by the esteemed manufacturer. Rally Champion, Mohammed Ben Sulayem, experienced DBX both on the track and in the off-road zone of Dubai Autodrome, joined by regional President of Aston Martin, Dan Balmer.
