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 and 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. Very definitely the one to own.
This UK specification example benefits from the 12 cylinder Vantage engine, the elegant colour scheme of Midnight Blue with a parchment interior works well. Newport Pagnell report a good main agent service history with invoices to back up as well as the original satellite navigation system fitted. With low mileage recorded, this most powerful of sporting coupés presents in good condition throughout and has certainly been priced keenly.
