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 grille, 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. With the launch of the new V12 engine in the DB7 Vantage, production of the earlier straight-six DB7 ended in mid-1999.
Registered originally on 18th January 2000 this DB7 Vantage is in splendid condition and is described by the vendor as being ’ready to enjoy immediately’.
The grey coachwork is in very good order as is the interior. The 5935cc engine sounded beautiful when started and these Aston Martins have a reputation for being great tourers. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate together with the service books; this car represents outstanding value for money.
