|Odometer reading||80,209 miles|
|Estimate||£15,000 - £20,000|
Introduced to the public in 1993, the handsome new DB7 was Aston Martin's first six cylinder model since the 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. This was 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 at 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. The DB7 is regarded by many as the purist modern Aston Martin and will undoubtedly be a collectable car for years to come, it is equally at home in the city or out on the open road.
This example, originally metallic blue, is now presented in Pearlescent White with cream leather interior and blue piping. This particular car also comes with the popular automatic transmission and is striking in its present colour scheme.
