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/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.
Originally registered on 12th February 2003, this Aston Martin is finished in the delightful colour combination of Onyx Black with contrasting grey leather interior, walnut dashboard and door cappings. The modest mileage of a little over 52,000 equates to less than 3,000 miles per annum. A great specification adorns this DB7 including 19” alloy wheels, red brake calipers, a mesh front grille and fully adjustable electric heated GT seats which is a rare option. A sports exhaust system enhances the wonderful note emitting from the V12 engine. Heated front and rear screens are important driver aids as is the Bluetooth stereo system. Supplied with the original service books confirming the car has been cared for by a combination of main dealers and Aston Martin specialists, this stunning example has the desirable combination of V12 power and soundtrack coupled with sumptuous luxury and effortless acceleration through the automatic transmission.
