Introduced in 1993 to the public, the handsome new DB7 was styled by Ian Callum, its lines were evocative of earlier Aston Martin models and elements of the DB4/5/6 could be seen in its design. Arguably one of the most attractive looking cars ever produced by Aston Martin, the DB7 was well received and attracted new customers worldwide with its traditional layout of the curvaceous two-door coupé body. At the Geneva Motor Show in 1999, Aston Martin introduced the six litre Cosworth-designed and built V12 engine, developing 420bhp and accelerating from 0-60mph in 4.9 seconds with a top speed limited to 185mph. Ian Callum enlarged the grille, added fog lamps and restyled the valances to give the car a more aggressive look.
First registered on 10th March 2000, this DB7 Vantage Volante has only had two registered owners throughout its 22 year life. Indeed, unusually included in the car’s history file, is the receipt to the last keeper for £49,000, who bought the car from HWM Aston Martin in Walton-on-Thames in Surrey. Averaging a mere 2,845 miles per year over the past 22 years, this handsome Aston seems to have led an easy life. Reported by the vendor to run and drive extremely well, the car has recently benefitted from a £1,884 service. Other than the usual service requirements, any other elements highlighted, including re-gassing the air conditioning, were attended to as well. The hood operates perfectly and the car presents well. As well as the history file, the included Owner’s book shows a total of 15 stamps for servicing carried out and the car comes supplied with two sets of keys and also included with the car is the private plate, ‘ARC 74T’.
It is supplied with a V5C registration document, owner’s handbook, file of receipts, two sets of keys and a MoT test certificate valid until May 2023. Becoming ever more collectable, these 420bhp V12 DB7’s are a British design classic that represent excellent value for money.
