Glistening in a rare shade of Islay Blue, this Vantage cuts a graceful figure whilst on the move or at the curb. The deeply layered paintwork presents in excellent condition, with only a few carefully touched in stone chips in keeping with the low mileage to the front. Rubbers, trims and surrounds have survived well thanks to careful ownership and storage.
In typical Aston Martin fashion there is a considered balance of the very best traditional material married to a fresh and elegant design. The deeply bolstered two-tone seats wrap around both driver and passenger wonderfully well and show only minimal signs of wear on the drivers bolster and gear knob.
The dashboard, steering wheel top and many of the smaller interior pieces are trimmed with wood which give this 20 year old design a classic and sophisticated edge. The door cards are beautifully designed with the same two tone leather and wood construction.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The DB7 will always hold historic importance as the first ever production Aston Martin to be fitted with a V12. Producing 420bhp it can manage 0-60 in just 4.9 seconds, which is hugely impressive even by modern standards.
Although the power is impressive, its the sound of the 6 litre V12 that really sets the DB7 apart. Right through the rev range it produces a howl with depths that modern turbo charged engines could only dream of.
The manual gearbox is a great pairing to the mighty V12, with smooth changes and power on demand perfectly tuned as a grand tourer.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The model specific 18 inch wheels present unmarked wrapped in Bridgestone rubber with a good amount of tread left across their surface.
Brakes are more than a match for the V12’s performance, demonstrating good feel on test with plenty of disc / pad material remaining.
This DB7 was first delivered on the 1st November 1999 and received its running in service later the same month, as detailed in the service book.
There are a 14 Aston Main dealer stamps alongside a further 4 Independent entries. The last service completed in August 2019 by Aston Martin Nottingham at 36,545 miles.
