Would Anybody Buy an Aston Martin Minivan?

Over the past century, Aston Martin has been responsible for some of the greatest shapes to ever grace the flanks of a car – the classic DB5, the V8 Vantage, and of course the heady One-77 supercar. This is, however, not one of them. Nor is it a real Aston Martin.  It is in fact a digitally retouched version of Ford's new Galaxy multi-purpose vehicle, rendered by X-Tomi Design. The production version of the Galaxy will hit the streets of the United Kingdom later this year. Given that Ford and Aston Martin are no longer joined at the hip, a Galaxy-based Aston won't be happening, ever. But if Aston Martin ever did build a seven-seat crossover, would anyone buy one?

The DBX offers luxurious seating for four adults, an eco-centric electric powertrain, all-wheel drive, and evolutionary Aston Martin styling. Aston boss Andy Palmer noted that the DBX Concept was by no means a production-ready car, but he did suggest an Aston Martin crossover SUV would happen and that the DBX portrays a type of car Aston customers “could request of us in the future.” Back in reality, the Galaxy sports a much more conventional drivetrain – a series of gas and diesel four-cylinder engines – and admittedly not the sportiest of looks, though not bad for an MPV. X-Tomi rendering touches added an Aston Martin badge, racy wheels, and British racing green paint. Any takers?
