One of the most interesting concepts currently on display in Geneva is the Aston Martin DBX. The British marque wants to reinvent the GT segment with a high-riding model that could be considered by some as being a crossover. It wears a Black Pearl Chromium and has received a pair of swept back headlights and the typical Aston Martin grille along with rounded fog lamps while on the inside the four seats are wrapped around in Nubuck leather upholstery.
Motivation of the Aston Martin DBX concept comes from in-wheel electric motors powered by lithium-sulphur cells. The engineers have also implemented a drive-by-wire electric steering system while the stopping power is provided by carbon ceramic brakes boasting KERS (kinetic energy recovery system). The futuristic cabin hosts driver & passenger head-up displays and a minimalist layout as there are very few physical buttons and knobs.
Benefiting from active LE headlights and taillights, the Aston Martin DBX concept will not morph into a production version but the British marque does have plans to launch a car which would be in many ways similar to the DBX.
