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. The Aston Martin DB7 will undoubtedly be a collectable car for years to come and is equally at home in the city or out on the open road.
Originally registered on 25th March 2000, this handsome DB7 is finished in Onyx Black and is trimmed in light grey. After a two-year period off the road the vendor has set about recommissioning the car at a cost of circa £15,000. Work has been carried out on the automatic transmission, brakes, suspension and some tidying up of some minor paintwork issues. The net result of this work is a DB7 Vantage that presents in delightful condition and is ready to be enjoyed immediately. Supplied with a substantial history folder and a V5C registration document together with an MoT test certificate valid until 22nd January 2024. This stunning example has the desirable combination of V12 power and soundtrack, coupled with sumptuous luxury and effortless acceleration. The confidence in this car will certainly capture the imagination of any Aston Martin collector or enthusiast.
