Unveiled at the Geneva Motorshow in 1993, the Ian Callum styled DB7 began production in 1994 at a new factory in Bloxham, Oxfordshire. It was engineered in conjunction with Tom Walkinshaw's TWR group who built the new supercharged six cylinder engine. In 1999 the new DB7 Vantage with a V12 engine was revealed. It didn't just bring a new powertrain but more aggressive styling with a bigger front grill, new fog/side/indicator lights and imposing 18" wheels. The Vantage interior leather trim was cut and sewn at a special trim shop at Newport Pagnell where the carpet and wood veneers were also prepared. With the launch of the new V12 engine in the DB7 Vantage, production of the earlier straight-six DB7 ended in mid-1999.
This extremely elegant righthand drive DB7 Vantage, fitted with the ZF automatic gearbox, is finished in Derwent Green with a Forest Green and Parchment leather interior. It was delivered new on 1st December 2001 by Lancaster in Sevenoaks. The service book has 15 stamps from Aston Martin main dealers and one stamp in 2011 from specialist, Desmond Smail. The car has been provided through Aston Martin Works in Newport Pagnell who performed the most recent service in November last year. A V5C registration document and MoT test certificate until February 2016 are also provided. With an excellent history and a most elegant colour combination, this DB7 drives well and is supplied in good order throughout.
