The Las Vegas F1 race was not without its controversy. Regardless, brands like Aston Martin still had plenty to show during the race weekend and organized nearly 60 hot laps for a handful of lucky customers in attendance.
Tim Burton aka Shmee on YouTube had the privilege of driving a DBX707 around the 3.85-mile track. Painted in a striking Kermit Green, the 697-horsepower SUV showed off its skills on the street circuit – and Shmee certainly didn't go easy on the posh family hauler.
At various points in the video you can see the front brakes glowing orange. As standard, the DBX707 has carbon ceramic brakes hugged by six-piston calipers. And compared to the brakes on the regular DBX, the weight is down by nearly 90 pounds.
Aston Martin DBX707 AMR23 Edition
Lest we forget the DBX707 has been the official F1 Medical Car this season, alongside the Vantage performing its duties as the F1 Safety Car. Mercedes-AMG is still supplying vehicles, with the AMG GT 63 S F1 Medical Car and the AMG GT Black Series F1 Safety Car alternating with Aston Martin's duo.
To further strengthen Aston Martin's tie-up with F1, the DBX707 received an AMR23 Edition earlier this year featuring a livery mimicking the race cars driven by Fernando Alonso and Lance Stroll. Both pilots had a good weekend in Las Vegas by finishing ninth and fifth, respectively, therefore earning solid points. With one race to go, Aston Martin still has a shot at finishing fourth in the constructor standings since it's only 11 points behind McLaren.
