The Aston Martin DB7 was designed by Ian Callum and debuted at the 1993 Geneva Motorshow. Taking many of its design influences from earlier Aston Martin models including the DB4/5/6, it is regarded as one of the most beautiful Aston’s ever built. Production of the latest Aston Martin moved from Aston’s iconic home of Newport Pagnell to a purpose built facility in Bloxham, Oxfordshire. The DB7 was launched with a six-cylinder 3.2 litre supercharged engine which produced 335bhp and boasted a 0-60mph of 5.2 seconds. This powerful engine propelled the DB7 on to a top speed of 157mph. As with the handbuilt Aston Martins, only the finest materials were used including full Bridge of Weir leather for the sumptuous interior, aluminium instrument surrounds and tread plates.
This Aston Martin DB7 Volante is finished in Pennine Grey metallic with charcoal full leather interior. This beautiful example has covered a mere 45,270 miles from new.
