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 ten 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. The Vantage was the first Aston Martin in 1999 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, privately entered but presented to a showroom standard.
The first owner cherished this example for some 14 years, his careful tenure contributed to just 22,000 miles being covered since it was first registered on 10th December 1999, this in turn encouraged our vendor to purchase the car in May 2018, wanting the best of this marque. Since he purchased the vehicle our vendor has continued the fastidious upkeep, utilising the skills of Chiltern Aston and Aston Martin Works to maintain this glorious Vantage Coupé adding to the comprehensive history file containing details of the continual service history together with previous MoT test certificates. Fitted with a fabulous sounding factory sports exhaust and upgraded front grille, we believe it certainly is one of the best you will find on the market.
Offered with an MoT test certificate valid until May 2022, 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?
