Aston Martin super-4×4 to rival G-Class under consideration – rumour

A British automotive publication says Aston Martin is considering to build an off-road-focused sports utility vehicle, their second ever SUV.

Dubbed ‘Project Rambo’, Aston Martin is, according to British automotive publication Autocar, considering building a high-performance 4×4 to rival the likes of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class (especially the G63 variant, of course) and, indeed, the new-generation Land Rover Defender (most likely the supercharged V8 derivative).

However, as the production — or even idea, for that matter — of an off-road-focused Aston Martin SUV is only under consideration, not much is known about what might just become the British luxury marque’s second SUV offering.

However, just how likely is it that Aston Martin will actually produce an SUV of this irk? Well, as stated by Autocar, executive chairperson of the Gaydon-based brand, Lawrence Stroll, ‘will not give the project the green light unless it has a solid business case’. Yet, considering the DBX, the firm’s first-ever SUV, is the company’s best-selling product, a fair bet would be that a more-adventurous Aston Martin SUV, which, of course, retains the luxury offered by the DBX, might be a worthy addition to the automaker’s line-up.

However, if this project is given the thumbs-up, it seems the off-road-focused Aston Martin SUV will be available in limited numbers. As reported by Autocar, if this variant is made, only a limited number (2 500 examples, to be precise) will be available for purchase to ensure its exclusivity.
