There is no denying that the Aston Martin DBX 707 and the Lamborghini Urus are the fastest-production SUVs on the market. Carwow UK pitted these two SUVs against each other in an exciting drag race to determine the quicker SUV in a real-world scenario. Both the Aston and the Lamborghini are equipped with 4.0-liter V8 powertrains, but the DBX707 variant boasts more power compared to the standard model (707 horsepower versus 542 horses), while the Urus produces 641 horsepower.
Note that the Urus also comes in a more powerful variant ‘Performante’ at 666hp, so this is a battle of the base Urus against the very special 707. But let’s see…
Undoubtedly, the Aston Martin DBX 707 should claim victory over its Italian rival?
Watch the captivating video below to witness the thrilling race.
The DBX and the Urus are equipped with a powerful 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 engine. While the Urus generates an impressive 641 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque, the DBX 707 takes it up a notch with 697 horsepower (707 ps, reflecting its metric horsepower rating) and 664 pound-feet of torque. This higher output is achieved through new ball-bearing turbochargers and engine calibration. As a result, the DBX 707 variant surpasses the Urus by 56 horsepower and 37 pound-feet of torque. Despite the Urus weighing in at 4,850 lbs, making it approximately 99 pounds lighter than the DBX 707, which weighs 4,949 lbs, it could not outperform its British rival.
What exactly happened in the Drag race?
During the quarter-mile run, the DBX showcased its superiority by outpacing the Urus, leaving it behind by three-tenths of a second. As the race progressed to the one-mile mark, the DBX further extended its lead over the Urus. In the rolling drag race, the Urus attempted to keep up with the DBX, but the Aston Martin’s higher horsepower meant the Lamborghini had to settle for second place.
