Regarded by many as one of the world's most beautiful cars when released in 1994, the DB7 received many subtle but effective changes over its 10 year life to complement the elegant body design. Originally designed by Ian Callum to be both beautiful and practical and encompass all the unmistakable DB styling cues, it was initially deemed a little underpowered and thus lacking in excitement. In 1999 the DB7 received significant enhancements with the introduction of the Vantage. The Vantage was the first Aston Martin to use the V12 engine and alongside styling changes enabled 420bhp. A more aggressive styling with a bigger front grille, new fog lights, side and indicator lights and imposing 18" wheels complemented the styling refresh. 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.
This desirable UK specification DB7 coupé is presented in the elegant colour scheme of Aston Martin Racing Green with a Saddle Tan leather interior and benefits from the 12 cylinder Vantage engine. The previous owner cherished this example for some 14 years and his careful ownership has contributed to just 22,000 miles being covered since it was first registered on 10th December 1999. Fitted with a fabulous sounding factory sports exhaust and upgraded front grille, this DB7 boasts a comprehensive history file containing details of the service history together with old MoT test certificates.
Offered with an MoT test certificate valid until March 2019, this stunning example has the desirable combination of V12 power and soundtrack coupled with sumptuous luxury and effortless acceleration through the automatic transmission; road trip to the South of France anyone?
