Lot 224 - 1994 Aston Martin DB7 – 3,300 Miles From New
|Estimate||£45,000 - £55,000|
|Result||Sold - £50,400|
Introduced in 1993 to the public, the handsome new DB7 was Aston Martin's first six cylinder model since production of the DB6 Mk2 had finished in 1971. Styled by Ian Callum, its lines were evocative of earlier Aston Martin models and elements of the DB4/5/6 could be seen in its design. Arguably one of the nicest looking cars ever produced by Aston Martin, the DB7 was well received and attracted new customers worldwide with its traditional layout of the curvaceous two door coupé body and powerful six cylinder engine. Power was supplied by an all alloy double overhead camshaft supercharged 24 valve inline six cylinder engine which produced 335 bhp @ 5750rpm. The supercharger was supplied by Eaton who also provided blowers for the mighty eight cylinder Vantage that was produced at Newport Pagnell at the same time as the DB7 at Bloxham. Regarded by many as the purist modern Aston Martin, the DB7 will undoubtedly be a collectable car for years to come and is equally at home in the city or out on the open road.
This right hand drive, early production pre-air bag example has covered a mere 3,300 miles from new and, as one would expect with such a low mileage, is described as being in excellent condition.
Finished in the desirable launch colour scheme of Chiltern Green complemented by a Parchment and Forest hide interior, it is supplied with a V5C document, MoT certificate valid until May 2016 and a complete history including the original warranty card, bill of sale, purchase correspondence and all related brochures and books with some instruction manuals still in their plastic wrapping.
Still wearing its rare wheel discs with the correct Bridgestone Expedia tyres, Sony radio CD and original AML number plate; this is undeniably one of the lowest mileage DB7s on the market. A highly collectable motor car and a fantastic addition to any Aston collection.
