It seems a ridiculous thing to say about a 700 horsepower, two and a bit tonne SUV, but the overwhelming sense I had after driving this Aston Martin DBX707 (there’s no space between the letters and numbers at Boeing’s command) was what a thoughtfully executed car it was.

Yes, thoughtful. It is the most powerful SUV on sale in the UK and none is faster to 62mph. It has a top speed of 193mph which, knowing how conservative manufacturers have to be with such claims, means there are almost certainly conditions in which it would do 200mph. A 200mph SUV.
